Touch Pets Dogs 2 Preview
If you were a big fan of ngmoco’s Touch Pets Dogs but aren’t too fond of felines, don’t worry – it looks like Touch Pets Cats isn’t going to be the only follow up in the series. Touch Pets Dogs 2 has just hit the App Store in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, and will no doubt arrive in the US and UK in the near future.
A direct sequel to ngmoco’s original pet care simulator, Touch Pets Dogs 2 seems to lean more on elements from its kitty-cat contemporary than from the game that started the series. Gameplay elements introduced in Touch Pets Cats, like finding treasure in furniture, appear to be a core part of this puppy-based sequel. The career elements from the original that were removed from Cats appear to be missing from the Dogs 2 package as well.
Despite the similarity to Touch Pets Cats, it seems as though Touch Pets Dogs 2 won’t be at a loss for gameplay. The description on the Canadian iTunes Store paints a pretty solid picture of what players can expect;
Create a custom playland for your new best friend and fill it with remote controlled planes, flying discs, chew toys and doggie treats. Primp your pups with soapy sponges and keep your furry friends in the latest canine fashion to ensure they’re always ready to impress their friends on playdates.

There’s no official word on when Touch Pets Dogs 2 will launch internationally, but it’s interesting to note that the game is being tested in more than one market. The beta phase/server test period is normally limited exclusively to Canada. Does this mean we may be seeing an era where ngmoco are launching bigger test phases?
