Ubisoft has announced today that it is launching two new entries in its long-running Petz franchise. Petz Beach and Petz Countryside will launch on the Nintendo 3DS this month, and will allow players to look after 50 different animal types.

The two games will feature connectivity with one another, and will also utilise the 3DS' StreetPass functionality to allow players to exchange items with one another. Both will also make use of the console's facial recognition tech to create a more "unique" bonding experience with each pet.

Interestingly, Ubisoft is distributing the games exclusively via Amazon in the UK, with both titles launching on October 17th. The Petz series has sold over 23 million units across multiple formats.
