Updated on November 17th, at 8:23: PortablePixels has confirmed, "we currently don't have any plans for Hatchi 2 on Android."

Original story follows...

A sequel to Hatchi, the 2012 virtual pet app from Portable Pixels, has been released.

This follow-up, called Hatchi 2, costs 69p / 99c on the App Store.

Unlike its predecessor, Hatchi 2 features much more colorful art, still retro in style, but not quite as much of a visual throwback to old Tamagotchi games as Hatchi the first.

In Hatchi 2, you'll get to collect over 25 "Hatchis," virtual pets that you hatch from eggs, feed, clean, and play with.

Hatchis can also be bred to create new variations.

The game includes nine mini-games and some customziation options as well.

You can buy Hatchi 2 on the App Store for 69p / 99c.

The original Hatchi is on both Android and iOS devices. There has been no word on an Android version of Hatchi 2 yet, but we'll keep you updated.
