My guess is that they will release it around New Year or the 16th (or are we on the 17th?) anniversary of Tamagotchi.


like bandai america remembers the anniversary date ;O

I don't want Bandai America to have what Bandai Japan does...TMGC America is not popular enough for that. I just want them to make a new Tamagotchi Toy or release some of the old versions. At least they could fix TamaTown..(even if it costs money..)

What I don't understand is that tamatalk has been the #1 forum for Tamagotchi thousands of active members. Bandai is VERY aware of this site and the fact that bandai doesn't get ideas on what they should make next from here. Do they even pay attention to the fans at all? I doubt it.

Just because we're 18+ now doesn't mean we want to wear a bunch of terrible clothing, and not everyone has or wants an android phone. Sorry but I'll stick to virtual pets, and thankfully to bandai japan who finally started to release English versions of their new models. at least SOMEONE gets it. ALSO the video made it out for like 10? year olds. That was just awful. Also that gender inequality, wth? I know LOTS of boys who played with tamagotchis way more than girls back in the day, even when they came out with the Tamagotchi connection most of my friends with them were guys. This was the worst fail and the biggest waste of money. I would never in my life buy any of that garbage. Yesh i love virtual pets but no I'm not going to change my INTIRE lifestyle to look like a tamagotchi.

All they showed in the video is a Tamagotchi Angel and random tamas dancing around...The rest was just jeans and shops and...Whatever. Looking at Tamagotchi as a Virtual Pet is natural. Looking at it as clothes...Not even close to natural! When I saw Ciara's status I knew nothing good was coming. Since Bandai didn't really give us hope. This is not even CLOSE to making a Tamagotchi toy. I know - I'm 11 and I don't like this at all - but if I was older I'm sure I would've felt the same way. Not EVERYTHING is about clothes. Tamagotchi is Tamagotchi. Clothing Shops are Clothing shops. I doubt that they will fix TamaTown when all this is going on. This is not for true Tamagotchi fans.

After watching about five seconds of that video (And then shutting it off)... now I'm worried about the future of Tamagotchi in America.

That is all.

How many times do they have to mention that it's a set of lifestyle products and not toys? :P

Now you guys are pretty convinced that there's nothing to see here. lol

But we have no confirmation that Bandai America is actually producing a new Tamagotchi v-pet or not. That, combined with the confirmation of what we're getting via that video, and their focus on the 20th anniversary of Power Rangers, is what has me worried.

Whoa. I feel so bad for the people who were looking forward to this. I didn't know the Tamagotchis of my childhood were going to end up like... like... This. ;/

( LOL at the fully red dislike bar though )

They disabled comments on the youtube video lol

But the website is final online and its every bit as bad as the video
http://tamagotchilife.com/


They aso say this in the FAQ so all is no bleak
Will there be a new Tamagotchi toy in the U.S. anytime soon?
Bandai, the company responsible for the sale of over 78 million Tamagotchis since its November 23, 1996 debut in Japan, considers Tamagotchi a core brand and priority. Bandai is planning an exciting re-launch of Tamagotchi product timed to fit in with a dynamic new strategy.

It better lead to a dub of the anime, or at the very least a toy that isn't related at all to the vintages.

I very much doubt it will be any form of anime, but it does sound like its related to vintage tamas if they say its "timed to fit in with a dynamic new strategy" I recon that we might hear something in either spring (ties with app release) or mid/late summer (ties with clothing launch)

It said, "product", not toy... it appears like it's evading the question lol
