Super cute Japanese cat-collecting game now in English


Neko Atsume!

Step 1: Place playthings and snacks in your yard.

Step 2: Wait for cats to visit!

That's advice for Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector (iOS, Android) and life in general.

As of a recent update, the Japanese app is now also in English. It's super simple -- you mainly tap on menus to buy and place items, watch cats that come to play, and occasionally snap photos -- but the little guys are just so adorable. I'm currently looking at a satisfied fat cat named Tubbs.

Neko Atsume is the kind of game you'll want to check on throughout the day, and that's by design. Something sweet to lift me up after I waste my hearts in Pokémon Shuffle.
