PlayStation Vita Pets unleashed on June 3

Originally announced for Europe last year, Sony has confirmed that the appropriately-titled PlayStation Vita Pets is coming to the States on June 3. EyePet developer Spiral House is working on the game, and promises it really is more than Sony's attempt at Nintendogs.

You'll be able to pick from among four puppies and go adventuring around Castlewood Island, exploring locales like a graveyard and old castle. You'll also have to take care of your pet, bathing, feeding, and walking your new companion.

Oh, and just in case you weren't clear what platform it's coming on, the PlayStation.Blog explains: "We are very excited to announce that we will be releasing PlayStation Vita Pets exclusively for PS Vita."
