Seven-year-old kids living in apartments that don't allow pets are going to go crazy over Wappy Dog -- a recently announced game for the Nintendo 3DS. Wappy Dog lets you virtually raise a dog, and then play with him in real-life.

The Wappy Dog game is targeted at children, but is very interesting to a refined, adult gamer such as myself. The game integrates the robot puppy into the action, letting you talk to him with 18 different voice commands. The dog will respond with over 350 different barks that are translated by the 3DS. Technology like this hasn't been seen before, which is why it is so exciting. If you do have children who are in dire need of a dog, then check out the video below to see the Wappy Dog game in action. Stats for Robot Gaming Pups Trending: Older & Chilly
