Neopets Reportedly Wants To Bring The Game To Nintendo Switch

At a first glance, Neopets would fit Nintendo like a glove, with the animated virtual pet site being some beautiful blend of Nintendogs, Pikmin, and Animal Crossing. However, the game which requires users to browse through Neopia and tend to the cutest animals that JumpStart Games has to offer has been strictly a PC title since its conception from Independent back in 1999.

Having once been an internet sensation alongside the likes of Club Penguin and Habbo Hotel, Neopets is now looking to revive Neopia through a collaboration with Nintendo, by bringing the furballs directly to Switch consoles.

According to Shannon Liao of The Washington Post, "The Neopets team is thinking of bringing the game to the Nintendo Switch but declined to share further details", after it was blocked on many major web browsers at the conclusion of 2020. As the game heavily relied on Adobe Flash which is now almost redundant, the team seem to have identified Nintendo Switch as the chopping board in their recipe for success.

The game would have serious competition from like-minded titles that have the added bonus of being created in the 21st century. The likes of Pokemon Sword and Shield and Animal Crossing have been success stories in recent times for the Japanese gaming monsters, although a collaboration with Neopets may inject a large sense of nostalgia to fans, which is often a noteworthy selling point that Nintendo thrive on.

Nintendo themselves are enjoying a busy start to 2021, with Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl in development alongside a new open-world adventure named Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Adding Neopets to the conveyor belt of cute family-friendly titles could pop the cherry on the top of a great 2021 for Nintendo.
