Players can choose their favorite breed of kitten, give it a name, feed it and play with it, all through the easy-to-use Nintendo DS interface. Pet kittens will respond to the player’s voice and interact with the environment created by the player. Additional features include the ability to earn an allowance to buy accessories and toys.
“We’re excited to be working with inXile Entertainment to bring this great DS game to European consumers,” said Ian Curran, senior vice president of international publishing, THQ. “Purr Pals is a unique addition to our DS portfolio, offering an experience that takes full advantage of the system’s stylus and touch-screen functionality.”
“We’re delighted to be working with THQ to launch Purr Pals across Europe,” said Chris Keenan, senior producer, inXile Entertainment. “With THQ’s unrivalled success in the hand-held market, they are best-placed to deliver the game to Nintendo DS players throughout Europe.”
THQ is scheduled to launch Purr Pals throughout Europe in summer 2007.
