London, UK – October 11, 2005 –Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s leading video game publishers, announced that it has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with MTO Co., Ltd. to distribute Dogz®, the first puppy simulation game exclusively for Nintendo’s GameBoy Advance. Ubisoft will distribute Dogz® worldwide, with the exception of Japan, in November of this year.

Dogz® is a pet simulation game that lets owners name, train and play with a realistic puppy. Players create and control a main character and choose one of 49 different dogs from 18 different breeds. As characters in the game, owners can take their puppies everywhere within the virtual environment, from through the house to around the neighbourhood to visit friends.

Gamers will earn their puppy’s love and loyalty by remembering to feed and groom it and reward it when it does things correctly. Owners can train the puppy to lie down, shake, fetch and perform many other tricks.

Key Features:

  • Three Mini-games Available: Run Puppy Run!, Puppy Reversi and Puppy Quiz with a cuddly new companion.

  • Visiting Mode: By linking two Game Boy Advance systems, players can send their puppy off to a friend's house.

  • Always Together Mode: After players complete the game, up to three puppies’ data are saved through an included backup feature. When players go to Always Together Mode, they will be able to load one of their previous puppies’ data and play with it anytime.

Dogz® carries a PEGI 3+ rating. For more information and updates about Dogz®, please visit www.ubi.com.
