Five years ago, when the virtual pet brand was 20 years old, we discussed the influence of Tamagotchi. Now, on the occasion of our 25th anniversary, Bandai is producing another new Tamagotchi related product: smart watches.
“Tamagotchi Smart” has a color touch screen and microphone, so you can talk and touch with virtual pets. It was launched in Japan on November 23.
There are ten different beasts to choose from in the watch, including Mametchi, Poptchi, Awamokotchi, Kuchipatchi, Gaogaltchi, Pyueltchi, Wawatchi, Tuyoputchi, Milktchi and Karapatchi. You will be able to purchase the plug-in “TamaSma Cards” for 1,100 yen each. New items, accessories and mini games loaded onto the device.
Wireless transmission between Tamagotchi Smart devices is possible, so you can send your pet to your friend’s watch and vice versa. In addition to keeping pets, Tamagotchi Smart can also double as a traditional watch and includes a pedometer to track your steps throughout the day-but it doesn’t seem to provide any connection to a smartphone.
Tamagotchi Smart comes in two colors, mint blue and coral pink, and is priced at 6,380 yen.The third variant launched to officially commemorate the 25th anniversary of Tamagotchi is priced at 7,480 yen and can only be passed through Lottery.
There is no news about the Western version of Tamagotchi Smart, but considering the popularity of the Tamagotchi brand, we can imagine it will be launched in 2022.
