Wappy Dog brings forth the next generation of interactive toys, connecting a physical pet toy with the virtual world. Gamers care for and raise their very own interactive puppy to adulthood through an immersive experience communicated through the Nintendo DS, truly touching both the pet toy and videogame audiences.
Players choose between “Home (aff) Mode”, which enables them to engage with the physical dog through the Nintendo DS, or “Travel Mode”, which gives on-the-go Nintendo DS players a chance to continue caring for and playing with their pet virtually. In Home (aff) Mode, players can communicate by selecting a prompt on the Nintendo DS and Wappy will respond through vocal barks and movement. Players can converse with Wappy in this manner, ask the physical dog to perform tricks (such as singing and dancing) and play mini-games with their Wappy Dog to which the physical dog responds. In Travel Mode, players can nurture, play games with and customize a virtual version of Wappy Dog on the Nintendo DS. 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.
Each Wappy Dog is a personalized experience enabling players to customize both the virtual version with different colors and accessories, as well as the physical dog with spots, colors and accessories via in-pack sticker sheets. 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.
This is so cool, so I have arranged for one lucky reader to get their own Wappy Dog. Here's what you need to do:
