Ubi Soft Entertainment today announced that it will publish the next installments of its best-selling Petz family of products with Catz 5 and Dogz 5. Key among the new features in Catz 5 and Dogz 5 will be the ability for Petz owners to import all officially released Dogz and Catz from previous versions into the new title, ensuring that old friends aren't lost when their owners upgrade. Catz 5 and Dogz 5 for the PC are both expected to ship to U.S. and Canadian retail this Fall with an MSRP of $19.99 each.
"With all of the wonderful things about owning a pet and none of the mess, Dogz and Catz are perfect for people of all ages who have room in their heart and love to give," said Ashley Bushore producer for Ubi Soft Entertainment. "Always ready to play, and with their own unique personalities, every Catz and Dogz you adopt is a loyal companion, bringing something special to your life."

Ubi Soft has chosen Studio Mythos Inc., a leading developer of interactive entertainment software, to develop Dogz 5 and Catz 5. For updates on the development of Dogz 5, and Catz 5, please visit Ubi Soft's Petz site.
