Neopets Is Set To Return This Year As A Mobile Game
The classic website game Neopets is set to make a big return this year as a mobile app, nearly two decades after the initial game was first launched.
Neopets Legends and Letters was revealed during San Diego Comic Con 2018. It will allow players to enjoy everything fun from the original game whilst offering a selection of brand-new features.
Unfortunately, you won't be able to link it up to your old account - which can still be accessed, by the way. I wonder what ever happened to our virtual pets we stopped feeding ten years ago...
911 operator: this is 911, what is your emergency?

911 operator: who's dead sir?
me: my neopets, i haven't fed them since 2008

Neopets was first made popular during the early 2000s. Looking after virtual animals was kind of a cool thing back then, with Tamagotchis still chilling in the pockets of pretty much every school kid in England.
Except me. I had this Pokémon Pikachu thing, which was basically the same toy but it was all about keeping Pikcachu happy. You can actually find these on eBay (of course) and they're not cheap! Let's hope I still have it somewhere.
According to CEO David Lord, Neopets Legends and Letters will include 'Neopets lore, a puzzle game mechanic, and battles,' the Verge reports. Most importantly, you can still dress up your pets as you chose.
But first, you have to earn those all important Neopoints. Like usual, you can build them up from playing the game or through buying them with real-world money. I guess it all just depends on how lazy or rich you are.
Neopets Legends and Letters should be available for both iOS and Android devices from October this year, so stay tuned for more updates. Will you be taking care of a virtual pet again?
