Hey everyone thanks for dropping by! This week is a big one! PlayStation Vita Pets is launching onto PS Vita at retail and on PlayStation Store so we’re back with our launch trailer and the top 5 reasons why you should give the game a look!
1. The dogs!
The stars of the game and your new best friends are totally unique and unlike anything else you’ve seen in other games. Why? Our dogs have real personality (including likes and dislikes) that they express through their actions and their voice. We’ve gone to painstaking efforts to ensure that every line in the game is fully voiced… all 10,000+ of them!
They’ll also remember your face and voice – once you pick your dog it’ll take a good look at you and will want to make sure it’s you who’s come back to play each time you return.
Once you pick your dog, your adventure begins on an island filled with caves, mazes, castles and treasure! Your job is to uncover secret clues to solve the mystery of an ancient legend of a king and his dog.
3. Pet Play
The dogs are hungry for adventure but they’re also just plain hungry – you’ll have just as much fun looking after your dog, feeding it, stroking it, showering it and playing games. Return each day to meet their daily needs, earn buddy points and go for a walk in the forest to dig up some treasure to buy new toys and games. Our dogs also have the added bonus of being able to tell you when they need to go to the toilet so there shouldn’t be any mess to clean up!
4. Real world play
We are using the latest markerless AR technology in the game to allow you to take your dog into the real world, just point the PS Vita and the dog will leap through its doggy door and out into your house. Want to play ball in the garden, run some obstacle courses or dig up treasure from your own floorboards? Well you can now!
5. Dress up
We’ve created hundreds of items of clothing for you to dress your dog up in, full outfits, hats, jackets, collars, props and more. Want to turn your Labrador into a mighty steed with a knight on his back? Want to turn your bold Collie into a little Amelia Earhart? Well you can here! You’ll be able to unlock new and exciting clothes as you progress the game and if you don’t want them you can always gift them to your PSN friends because what’s nicer than receiving a banana suit for your dog in mail?
Don’t forget that you can go grab our iOS and Android companion app, PS Vita Pets: Puppy Parlour, where you can earn even more exclusive costumes for your dog.
We’ve hardly scratched the surface with the above – there’s so much more in the game that we’ll delve deeper into in the coming weeks, things like all the side quests, collectables, gameplay variety and even cooler PS Vita features!
PlayStation Vita Pets is available from today, 4th June for only €29.99.
