Petz Nursery 2 (NDS)

Petz Nursery 2 allows players to care for a variety of all-new baby animals ranging from new breeds of puppies to baby penguins. With an even greater variety of animals than the original Petz Nursery, there will be 22 different baby petz to unlock. In addition to domestic animals like puppies and kittens, players will also unlock never-before-seen exotic petz, such as penguins and piglets! For the first time in a Petz game, players can take care of TWO animals at the same time, watch them play together, react to one another and even try to eat other's food.

Players can also nurture their Petz to help them grow by feeding, playing with, training and cleaning them. As newborns, the baby petz will need to be picked up and played with, and eventually taught to crawl. As they grow, players will teach them to walk and play musical and matching games. When night comes, help them fall asleep by rocking them or singing them a lullaby.

After players have raised their Petz in Petz Nursery 2, they will be able to bring their exclusive Petz on a worldwide adventure in the Petz virtual world, Petz World (coming 2011). This interconnectivity will allow players to continue their adventures with their Petz as they travel to exotic locations, help save animals, and meet new friends.
