It Does What Nintendogs Don't

While Sony's new pet simulator for Vita shares some, shall we say, distinct conceptual similarities with Nintendogs, it does appear to push the formula forward on a number of fronts.

In a new trailer released today, you can see that the game is a bit more expansive than the bare-bones (get it? dogs love bones!) Nintendogs games. In addition to the usual playing around with your pet, you'll be able to go for walks in a number of unique areas like a castle and discover treasures and other items. The game also uses the Vita's external camera to let your dog "play" in the real world - a neat little trick.

Oh, and the dogs have voices. Do they ever. To be honest, even in this trailer, some of them got to be a bit grating, but we'll have to reserve judgment for now.
