Ubisoft revealed its new Petz Rescue series for the Wii and DS at Games Convention 2008. These new titles move beyond simulating taking care of pets by letting players save, nurture and heal endangered animals. Ubisoft hopes to encourage environmental awareness and teach players about animal conservation. Here are the first few titles in the series courtesy of the Ubisoft press release on Business Wire:

Petz Rescue Wildlife Vet, available for Nintendo DS and Wii, players live an amazing adventure as a young vet who cares for domestic and exotic animals, and investigates the cause behind the local animals’ illnesses.

Petz Rescue Endangered Paradise for Nintendo DS allows players to become members of an environmental rescue team whose mission is to save the wildlife on a beautiful island that has been threatened by pollution.

Petz Rescue Ocean Patrol for Nintendo DS puts players in the role of Greg or Mila, who must help their uncle save endangered marine life on a secluded island.

I think it’s reasonable to assume any kid who loves Go Diego, Go would be good candidates for any of these games. The values Ubisoft claims to be espousing may be very altruistic, but might rub off on players just the same. You’ll find these Petz Rescue games in Stores this October.
