Yuruppy, a new virtual pet

In the same vein as the classic Tamagotchi, but with a touchscreen to keep up with the gaming Joneses, Yuruppy is a virtual pet for modern sorts. Manufactured by Tomy Takara, it can play as puppy, kitten or chicken. All one needs to is pet it, i.e. rub the screen, and slog through 14 mini-games that advance it in grueling RPG fashion. Yuruppy is $21, with a deluxe $38 edition. Wait... chicken? Source [IT Media via Crunchgear]

    The “deluxe” version is actually a wide screen version… Dunno why they’re making a widescreen one… A color display is needed!

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
