Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has released a new trailer for its latest handheld title, PlayStation Vita Pets. The game is due to hit the PlayStation Store as part of today’s regular update with a retail release on Friday.
For around £20, Vita owners can expect a colourful simulation/adventure hybrid, no doubt partly inspired by the popular Nintendogs series.
When comparing the two side-by-side there are clear differences, however. For one, in Pets the dogs actually talk to you, full lip sync and all. Also, instead of being stuck in a cycle of grooming, training, feeding, and watering your dog, Pets actually has a story-driven adventure mode.
We’re currently playing through the game and will be sharing our thoughts later this week.
