Famitsu describes Little Friends: Dogs & Cats as a communication game where you can live together with dogs and cats just like you would in real life. Players will be able to pet their animal using the touch panel and Joy-Con controllers. The closer you become with your animal, the cuter their behavior. Players will be able to go on walks, play with flying discs, and even participate in tournaments. The room you share with your animals can be customized. The dogs and cats themselves consist of popular breeds from both Japan and overseas. A large number of appearances, likes, personalities, and voices are being prepared.
