Indie publisher Sold Out has revealed the western release date for Little Friends: Dogs & Cats, a Nintendogs-like game coming exclusively to Switch. You'll be able to get your furry paws on it from 28th May.

The game arrived on Switch in Japan last December, with this western release being confirmed just last month. If you've missed our coverage of the title before now, a new press release has shared the following game description:

Developed by Imagineer, Little Friends: Dogs & Cats is the first virtual pet simulator for Nintendo Switch. Choose from a variety of puppies and kittens to pet, feed, walk and play with in an adorable pet sim that’s fun for all ages. Take your Little Friends for walks, compete in the flying disc tournament and play with their favourite toys to develop a long-lasting friendship. Or dress them up in over 600 stylish accessories to make them look their best!

If you can't wait for that May release date, those attending PAX East later this month in the US, and anyone heading to EGX Rezzed in the UK next month, will be able to go hands-on with the English version for the very first time.
