Activision Publishing released Wappy Dog, the first video game controlled toy pet developed by Sega Toys, that interacts with the player through the Nintendo DS. Wappy Dog will be available this holiday season on Nintendo DS.
The player's interaction with their Wappy Dog determines the pet's constantly evolving personality, skills, and happiness. Players communicate with Wappy using commands given through the Nintendo DS and he responds both virtually, by wagging its tail among other tricks, and physically, with vocal barks and movements.
"We were excited about Wappy Dog from the moment we saw it," says David Oxford, Activision Publishing. "This one-of-a-kind toy and video game combines a strong emotional bond and exciting virtual experience with the interaction of a physical pet. Wappy Dog is a truly innovative next generation toy and video game that gives kids an instant companion."
