It's my birthday, and I've already received a great gift: Neko Atsume, the mobile kitty-collecting game, got an update.
After months of minor bug fixes (and an Apple Watch compatibility update), Neko Atsume finally has three new kitties for you to collect, as well as a bunch of new items. Two of the new cats are regular cats, and one is an elusive rare / themed cat.
I won't spoil what the cats look like, or how you can get them (our own Mr Hirun Cryer was surprised to learn you can in fact spoil Neko Atsume). I'll say this much, though: The normal cats shouldn't be hard to nab with whatever you currently have in your yard, but as per tradition, the rare cat likes one of the new items. I'll leave you to guess which one.
Oh, and the background winter theme is gone in favor of summer. Good-bye snow, hello Katori Senko incense holder.
Though Neko Atsume typically updates every season, it skipped spring this year – which led people to believe the app was dead in the first place. Sometimes it's good to be wrong.
