Since then, it has become a widely popular game, so much so that it has been ported to the DS as Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise. It's not an exact port, though. There are some changes to make it more workable on the handheld system. So now, you can take your piñatas with you everywhere you go!
Since I haven't played the 360 or PC version, I can't tell you much other than what I've read about the original. Graphically, Pocket Paradise is quite pretty. You would think that it would be hard to keep track of the entire garden on a little screen, but they did a wonderful job of designing it so that you can see everything and find everything quite well."
