Duff won’t be alone in her electronic appearance. Her pet Chihuahua, Lola, will also show up in the video game’s virtual world, in which users create and control simulated people and pets in various situations, according to Reuters. Users can create their own pets, picking unique breeds, body shapes and even behaviors, Reuters reports.

The Sims 2 Pets is set to hit North American retailers on Oct. 17, and it will be available for Sony’s PlayStation 2 and Nintendo’s GameCube consoles, as well as in a PC expansion pack for use with computers, according to Reuters. The game is expected to ship within a few more weeks for use with Sony’s PSP device and Nintendo’s DS and Game Boy Advance, Reuters reports.

In 2004—the year the game was released—The Sims 2 was the top-selling PC game of the year, according to Reuters.
