Nintendo fails to announce Nintencats, SEGA steps in



We know what you're thinking, and yes, the mere fact that this post is related in some way to our feline friends is a good enough reason to break out the lolcats.

But we digress. Ever since the delightful Nintendogs launched and sold around a gazillion copies, we've been patiently waiting for a feline-based sequel, a follow-up that would undoubtedly attract the cat-loving half of the civilized world to Nintendo's handheld. Alas, "Nintencats" has (bafflingly) failed to emerge, so SEGA has dutifully decided to offer us Yume Neko DS, a game that allows players to pet, poke, and play with their cat in much the same way as we mucked around with our mutts in Nintendogs. It's hitting Japan next spring, though there's no news yet on a western localization.

Past the break, we've embedded a pair of trailers, one a demo of the game in action (worth a look, as the cats themselves are nicely animated), and the other a Japanese TV spot for the extremely sinister-looking "Yume Neko Smile," a cuddly toy spin-off from the game that probably comes to life at night to embark on bloodthirsty rampages, leaving nothing in its horrifying wake alive.
