Nintendogs is one of the best selling games on the DS. Therefore it’s no shock to see Crave announcing Purrpals, a pet simulator that focuses on kittens rather than puppies.
Unlike puppies however, cats are insane creatures with a specific hidden agenda. Please be aware of this fact as you allow Purrpals to inhabit your DS. It is absolutely possible that somehow your adorable baby kitten could hijack your gaming career and delete all of your saves. I care about you all and I only want to protect you from the danger you may be in at the hands of a kitten with nothing to live for.
Hit the jump for the press release.
