It's always a possibility that Bandai America could stop making tamas, considering that they aren't so successful in anywhere but Japan right now. I'm just glad they keep on making the Japanese ones. Although they are much more expensive due to the color screens, and the shipping from Japan, it is still worth it. I've heard rumors about a new American tamagotchi in 2013, but there's no details, and it's probably made up anyway.

it could potentially be revived as a phone app.


They already released Tamagotchi: 'Round The World for iDevices. ;)

I agree I hope they will renew the Tamagotchi line with something more high tech like Japan at least the Characters and stuff. Like Meloditchi, Moriritchi, ETC

If Bandai America is going to make a brand new Tamagotchi, it would have to be a major step up from the Tama-Go and have more inspired features from the Japanese Color Tamagotchis. I would suggest a larger screen with touch screen capabilities, which would make the Tamagotchi much flatter than previous versions. Maybe they can even bring back the sound sensors too like the OceanGotchi had as well? The newer Tama would look more like a very small touch screen phone or tablet. Technology is advancing, so the tech for Tamagotchis should too. :mimitchi:

I totally understand The older versions are way better than the tama go I used to own a tama go but I hated it I mean it was okay but I like the older versions best. I eventually ended up losing it because I never used it. The older versions are awesome yet they don't sell them anywhere there is absolutely nothing tamagotchi at my local Wal-mart Not even a plush or something it is really annoying.

Tamatown won't shut down, that would be unfair to those who still use their Tama-Go.

I still say I want a Tamagotchi iD L that's in English. I may learn to understand SPOKEN Japanese one day, but written is probably well beyond me. As of right now, I only understand two versions of a single sentence in Japanese, and neither version is likely to be used in the iD L, which doesn't bode well. (The two sentences are: Tori wa tonde imus; and: Tori tache wa tonde imus. The basically say "The bird is flying," and "The birds are flying," respectively.) I'd be willing to pay someone to tamper with one to change its language, but, according to my boyfriend, that wouldn't even work, lol. So, basically, I have to wait on Bandai to make one in English before I can enjoy it. Pfft. Will they hurry up and do it already? Lol.

For some reason I highly doubt they will stop so soon. They have brought out the iD L and Princess Spacy version so they might have some more Tamas to release. If they are still creating more Tamagotchis like the Princess Spacy version which came out in March 2012, there is surely more to come. Let's just keep our finger crossed.

They already stopped selling the Tama-Gos here in Australia. The only shop I ever saw them in was Woolworths, and it was only for a short time. They stopped selling them in Toys R Us because I looked at their site and there was no trace of TMGC. I heard that Bandai America is going to stop making Tamagotchis because of the Tama-Go's low popularity. Furthermore, they don't want to release a color TMGC because it would cost 50$ and they think nobody would buy such an expensive toy. It's heart breaking, but it looks like Tama-fans are going to have to move to Japan...


I live in Australia too. It is very sad. I was walking through Toys R Us when I heard a girl saying "Hey, Tamagotchi! I remeber these!". She had a look, then walked off. That was when I stumbled over the new Tama-Go. There were only a small amount shown. I somewhat DID find a v3-v4.5 skin (unexpectedly). They used to have them at Myers at around 2008, I haven't seen one since from there.

I really hope they don't stop selling Tamagotchis outside of Japan! It's so expensive to order one from there! It's just because the Tama-Go didn't sell well, right? Hey, I have an idea! Bandai wants to make Tamas cool again, so everybody will buy one and tamas will get popular again, but (judging by their last FAILED attempt, the Tama-Go) they clearly don't know how to make people want to buy one. Us Tama fans know what people want to see in a tama, at least alot more than Bandai does, and I've really heard some great ideas here for new tamagotchis here on TamaTalk! So, (if one of us manages to email them and get a response from a real person, not an automated response) maybe we could let Bandai know about what features people want in a tama, and we could tell them some cool advertising ideas! I'm totally serious! Maybe, just MAYBE, if someone from Bandai were to read one of our emails, they might realize what great ideas we gave them, and then they might take our advice, and make a tama everyone would think was cool! If Bandai makes just one version of tama that sells well, they could start another tama-craze like the one there was a few years ago! And then they would keep making tamas! It probably won't work, but it's worth a try, what have we got to lose? Anybody agree? WE CAN SAVE TAMAGOTCHI!!!!
