Bring your Fantastic Pet to life!
Fantastic Pets is the only video game that lets players create the pet of their dreams – real or fantastical! Selecting from four different animal species – dog, cat, lizard or horse – players can customize and create countless variations of pets to nurture, train and play with. And now for the first time players can join their pets on-screen and play together as if their pets were real, living creatures using augmented reality technology on the Microsoft Kinect.
Every fantastic pet is unique – each with its own personality and preferences. Players can use both voice and full-body commands to nurture, play, train and grow closer to his or her animal friend. Players compete in Talent Shows to level up their Pet Trainer rank and earn GEMs that can be used to unlock new customization options, accessories and achievements. As they increase their Trainer Rank and prove their abilities, players will be able to adopt up to four fantastic pets to call their own. Then invite friends and family to a pet party where everyone can jump into the game and play on-screen with a fantastic pet!
Customize and Create Your Very Own Dream Pet. Let your imagination go wild – from cuddly, furry puppies to fierce fire-breathing dragons, customize your dream pet with everything from skins, colors, patterns, wings, horns, tails and more!
Get in the game! Use augmented reality technology and join your pets on-screen in 12 different activities! Activities include talent shows, pet washes, feeding time or just hanging out on-screen with your fantastic pets.
Explore your pet’s personality. Is your pet confident or shy? Does it like fire fruit? Play and find out your pet’s unique personality and grow closer to your fantastic friend. Call out instructions to your pet and watch what it does!
It’s a fantastic pet party – multiplayer gameplay! Play cooperative mini-games or take turns with your friends and family and play fetch, bubble-dodge, smack-the-piñata and much more!
Show off your pet skills in the Big Talent Show. Join an ultra-secret group of Fantastic Pet trainers, level up your trainer rank to adopt up to four fantastic pets and collect GEM-points that can be used to unlock new activities, toys and accessories!
