I will never forget going for lunch with my Grandparents to celebrate the end of Summer and the fact that I was now going into Grade 4, right as we sat down they gave me a gift and I FREAKED OUT! They gave me a Tamagotchi and at that point all my friends either had one or wanted one. I remember getting in trouble more than once for trying to feed it or clean it’s poop during School. I LOVED that thing and I’m seriously thinking about getting a new one when they hit stores November 5th. According to BANDAI America, they’re coming back, to celebrate their 20th anniversary, for $14.99 and you can get yours in 1 of 6 colours; hot pink, yellow, white, and different shades of blue.
The best thing is apparently they’re not trying to update it to fit in with all the technology in 2017…it’s going to be pretty much the same as the original, just a bit smaller. Here are the only problems I see so far
- They’re only releasing a limited number of 20th anniverary Tamagotchi’s but haven’t said how many
- I don’t know where to get it yet, they just say “various North American retailers”
- Will I be better at keeping mine alive as an adult?
“In celebration of its upcoming launch, all generations that want the chance to feed, play and clean up after their virtual pets can pre-order their Tamagotchi device starting today at various
North American retailers. The mini Tamagotchi devices are sold individually with a suggested retail price of $14.99.” says us.tamagotchifriends.com
If you’re thinking “hey maybe I’ll get one for my kids so they can play with a toy I loved growing up!” They maaaaaaay not like it as much as we did, just judging by this video
