Konami today shipped GoPets: Vacation Island for the Nintendo DS. GoPets: Vacation Island is a virtual pet game for kids, but with a social networking twist.
The $29.99 game lets players connect with friends and showcase their very own customizable GoPets online. The created pets can travel the world and “visit” with friends, while the kids can have a “party” for up to eight characters at the same time. Players have the opportunity to customize and dress up their dog, cat or pony with various accessories, including dresses and hats.
GoPets: Vacation Island also lets players compete in mini-games and download special items via DS Download Stations. Players can also design items to send to other friends online and earn special shells to buy additional items for items for their very own world-traveling pet.
