Press Release: MY PET SHOP GET YOUR PAWS ON IT THIS FEBRUARY
London (14th January 2009) - Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces the forthcoming TAITO® game My Pet Shopâ„˘, will be available exclusively for the Nintendo DSâ„˘ system from 27th February 2009, across all PAL territories.
My Pet Shop is the first game from Square Enix to have its primary audiences rooted in the pre-teens market, and also the company's first game to heavily target girl gamers.
