As part of the in-game event, “Nala’s Perfect Getaway,” players are invited to complete a quest to prepare the farm for Nala. Once gamers advance to level 18, they can transform Luna, FarmVille 3’s resident cat, into Nala, the celebrity feline, for one year. Nala can do everything Luna can, like harvesting daisies for crafting, plus perform some of her favorite activities from real life, such as leaping into a cardboard box. Nala even comes with a decorating kit for her virtual home, which is inspired by her favorite hideouts in real life.

Since FarmVille 3 launched on November 4, 2021, the game has seen terrific player engagement including:

  • More than one billion crops harvested
  • Over 30 million animals born
  • Sunflower, bacon and milk are the most popular items sold
  • Polar bears, grey wolves and whitetail deer are the top exotic animals
  • Over 20 million gifts sent to other players

"We love the enthusiasm and positive engagement we're seeing from players in FarmVille 3," said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at Zynga. “From joining co-ops to sending gifts to friends, the FarmVille community is excited to help each other succeed and grow their farms. We can’t wait to see what our players will do next!"

Nala’s story began in a pet shelter in California a decade ago when she was adopted by her owner, Varisiri Methachittiphan. Now, with more than 4.3 million followers, she’s wildly popular on social media with a world record for most Instagram followers for a cat.
