Wappy Dog with Interactive Toy - NDS
About this itemESRB Rating: E for Everyone
Wappy Dog brings forth the next generation of interactive toys, connecting a physical toy dog with the virtual world, where young gamers care for and raise their very own interactive puppy to adulthood through an immersive experience communicated through the Nintendo DS™.
Each Wappy Dog is a personalized experience enabling players to customize both the virtual and physical versions with different colors and accessories. Players train and care for their Wappy Dog to determine their pet’s constantly evolving personality, skills, and happiness, as well as use their game system to communicate with their dog. Wappy will respond virtually to prompts sent in-game with tail-wags and tricks, as well as physically through vocal barks and movement.
Players choose between “Home Mode”, which enables them to engage with the physical dog through the Nintendo DS, or “Travel Mode”, which allows on-the-go Nintendo DS players to continue caring for and playing with their pet virtually. When players reunite their system with their physical pet, the two entities sync to enable the same dynamic personality and status giving players constant access to their pet.
