Sony Announces PlayStation Vita Pets for June

PlayStation Vita Pets

Sony revealed PlayStation Vita Pets, a new PlayStation Vita game from Spiral House. The game launches June 3.

PlayStation Vita Pets looks like a normal pet simulator at first glance. However, Spiral House claims it is much more than that. PlayStation Vita Pets aims to create a real game around the base pet sim elements. The game allows players to train and play with their pets, except training pets to learn new tricks serves an additional purpose in the game’s story and adventure mode.

[adsense250itp]Puppies and players are able to explore Castlewood Island. This adventure sees player and pup uncover the legend of King Rufus and his dog.

The game features multiple locations to discover and puzzles to solve in order to reach the legendary castle at the center of the island. By reaching the castle, players can find King Rufus’ legendary treasure. The pet sim elements inform progress in the adventure mode by giving pets the ability to solve puzzles and move past obstacles.

Players can adopt one of four different puppies. Puppies have unique personalities, character traits and senses of humor. Each puppy features has more than 10,000 lines of dialogue. In addition to each puppy’s unique personality, players can dress up and customize their pets with outfits. Gamers can name their puppies, bathe them, teach them tricks and even clean up after them.

Check out the trailer for PlayStation Vita Pets below.

Quick Take

PlayStation Vita Pets seemed like a simple Nintendogs clone at first. Thankfully it turned out to be much crazier and more interesting. While the game certainly will give those looking for a basic pet sim plenty to be happy about, delving deeper into PlayStation Vita Pets reveals so much more.

The game has full voice acting for the puppies à la Look Whose Talking Now. The ability to dress them up in firefighter outfits with a K-9 emblem or as a ballerina or a fighter pilot. Then there is the intriguing adventure mode that builds off the pet sim elements. Combine them all and PlayStation Vita Pets starts to become fairly appealing.
