The dreams of many young girls have been granted as D3Publisher of America, Inc. (D3PA) today announced that Horse Life™, an original game exclusively for the Nintendo DS™, has shipped to retail. Horse Life immerses players in the equestrian world by putting a horse right inside of their DS. Available for $29.95 MSRP, players must use the touch screen and microphone to keep their horse happy and fit by feeding them, cleaning their stall and riding them. Most importantly, players will put their training to the test by participating in national and international competitions to earn prestige and money to become a great champion.

“We are very pleased to be able to bring the joy of owning a horse to the Nintendo DS gamer with Horse Life. The game recreates the experience of owning a horse with exciting game play and the best graphics of any horse game available,” said Kim Motika, vice president of sales and operations, D3PA. “We know players will fall in love with Horse Life as soon as they pick it up, and we hope to fulfill many wishes this holiday season by offering the horse that so many have wanted but never gotten.”

Players will have the ability to choose from three horse breeds, French Saddle, English Thoroughbred and Thoroughbred Arabian that they can customize by choosing the name and coat color. Once players begin their training they can visit the Gear Shop to purchase over 80 different items such as clothing, saddles or food and treats for their horse. As players complete levels of competition, they will unlock the ultimate prize, a secret horse breed!

Horse Life is developed by Neko Entertainment and is rated “E” (Everyone) by the ESRB.
