It’s nearly time to live out your early-2000s Nintendogs dreams all over again, because the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive, Little Friends: Dogs & Cats, has finally gotten a release date!
In a press statement, Sold Out confirmed that the title will be available on the Nintendo Switch on May 28th, which is pretty much no time at all. Hooray!
The company said: “Sold Out is thrilled to announce that Little Friends: Dogs & Cats will release in Europe, North America, Australia & New Zealand on May 28th, exclusively on Nintendo Switch!
“Developed by Imagineer, Little Friends: Dogs & Cats is the first virtual pet simulator for Nintendo Switch. Choose from a variety of puppies and kittens to pet, feed, walk and play with in an adorable pet sim that’s fun for all ages.

“Take your Little Friends for walks, compete in the flying disc tournament and play with their favourite toys to develop a long-lasting friendship. Or dress them up in over 600 stylish accessories to make them look their best!”
Of course you can’t make a pet care sim without being compared to the absolutely iconic Nintendogs (and cats!) franchise that made the original Nintendo DS a must-have console.
Although those puppies and kittens are probably long gone (RIP), Little Friends: Dogs & Cats might be the next best thing. And I’m really curious to find out what’s going on with this dog/toddle hybrid pictured above. Is that a costume?!
