Indie game publisher Sold Out has today announced that it will be bringing Imagineer's recent release Little Friends: Dogs & Cats to Switch in the west this spring.

We first heard about this one last September when the game was first revealed in an issue of Famitsu magazine. The game soon released in Japan in December, but we haven't had any confirmation of a release in Europe and North America until now. If you're a fan of the Nintendogs series who's been hoping for a similar title on Switch, it looks like you're about to be in luck.

The game lets you choose from a variety of puppies and kittens to play with, feed, pet, and dress up in a no-doubt adorable simulation setup. You can play with your pet using their favourite new toy, or even take your new puppy out for walks and compete in a flying disc tournament. There are more than 600 accessories included to make your new best friend stand out, as well as the following features:

Game Features:

- Meet your new best friend! Choose from 6 breeds of puppy and 3 cute kittens, including Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd and French Bulldog. Give your new friend a name, care for them and develop a bond with them. Lifelike animations help bring your little friends to life.

- Play with them! Use the Nintendo Switch touch screen to pet your new friend, or take your puppy pal out on walks to keep them as happy as you can. Play ball, practice for the flying disc tournament, and unlock new toys as you play. Play with up to 3 pets at the same time, or use the hotel to keep up to 12 furry friends.

- Get to know them! Learn what your pet prefers to play and feed them their favourite food. With hundreds of lifelike personality traits, getting to know what each pet prefers is important for bonding with your little friend.

- Dress up! Choose from over 600 stylish accessories to dress up your new companion. Once they’re ready, take screenshots to remember their amazing outfits.

- Look after them anytime, anywhere! Take care of your cats and dogs on the go, or put the console in the dock to continue playing on the TV.

We still don't have a specific release date or pricing for this one, but we do know that it'll be arriving "this spring". PAX East visitors will also be able to go hands-on next month; the game will be displayed at booth #24096.
