Little Friends: Puppy Island is headed to Switch this year

Developer Big Blue Bubble and publisher Fireshine Games have announced Little Friends: Puppy Island is headed to Nintendo Switch this year. The latest game in the Little Friends series, Little Friends: Puppy Island is full to the brim with adorable fur babies to play with, care for and love.

Following up Little Friends: Dogs & Cats, Puppy Island eschews felines in favour of focusing solely on the good boys and girls of the canine variety. Expanding on the first game, in Puppy Island, players can now go on adventures with their pups and explore “sandy beaches, snowy mountains, cherry blossom sanctuaries and more.”

Little Friends: Puppy Island

Set on a tropical paradise, in Little Friends: Puppy Island, players will get up close and personal with Shiba Inu’s, Labradors, Corgis, Huskies, Pugs and four other breeds. In addition, over 350 outfits will be available with which to dress the doggos for success. Players will also be able to build accessory shops and activity stations to train the pups.

According to Big Blue Bubble and Fireshine Games, key features are;

  • Little Friends On Holiday! – Set off on an exciting new adventure that takes your puppy care experience even further! Explore an entire paradise island, find exciting new locations, dig up treasures and embrace your adventurous side with your new Little Friends.

Katie Clark, Senior Product Manager at Fireshine Games said, “We’re so excited to introduce the adorable next game in the Little Friends series, which jets players off on a cosy, fun-filled adventure across a paradise island. Developed by the talented team at Big Blue Bubble, creators of the smash hit My Singing Monsters franchise, we can’t wait for Little Friends: Puppy Island to scratch the itch of players looking for a wholesome new puppy sim later this winter.

Little Friends: Puppy Island is coming to Switch this year and is available now to pre-order from retailers.
