Following a tease from Bandai Namco this morning, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals Neko Tomo for Switch and 3DS. A followup to Kuma Tomo, which was released in Europe as Teddy Together, Neko Tomo will launch in 2018 in Japan.
In Neko Tomo, or “Cat Friend,” a talking cat shows up at your house, and as you live together, it learns words and talks with you. It is described as a relaxing communication game about becoming family with cats. By teaching it words, it will use those words to talk with you. Kuma Tomo will also appear. The game also has a Taiko Drum Master collaboration.
The first cat that appears, Nekoko, has dreams of becoming a YouTuber. The second cat, Tomomo, gives you little nuggets of wisdom about living.
