I believe the worst thing about the Tamagotchi L.I.F.E. video is the 2-dimensional Tamagotchi characters with the beeping sounds. Printed on T-Shirts the 2-dimensional characters are probably fine, however to add those characters to a clothing video doesn't look retro it just looks very bad. If they took the 2-dimensional characters off the T-Shirt and gave them life like an anime character that actually talked and interacted with all the scenes then the video would be better. While it doesn't fit our view of Tamagotchi it wouldn't be detrimental to the brand either. However I'm still uncertain how the person in the video is promoting a Tamagotchi lifestyle or has anything to do with Tamagotchi. An Anime series would be much better to promote the brand.

I AGREE SO MUCH.

The anime series gives the characters a lot of personality. Here.. Well, they literally seem like dumb animals, which is just BLEH. Heck, even without the anime, they could have at least TRIED to give the characters some depth, like the Video Adventures from the 90s did.

Here.. it feels plastered.. It's as if Sync Beatz was working on a generic lifestyle brand, and they happened to get the tamagotchi license and just SLAP IT ON!

If it's just an App I'm going to be mad. Really mad. For one thing I can't afford smart phones or tablets or anything like that. And even if I could I would in no way consider an app a real tamagotchi nor would I have any interest in raising a Tama on a freaking phone or tablet. I want a real Tama. I wouldn't really mind if they came out with a Tama that interacted with an app like Furby though. Just as long as the app wasn't a requirement to use the Tama.

Lol, take a good look at this twitter, and still tell me this is a "GREAT" idea for Tamagotchi.

I'd advise everyone to follow http://twitter.com/TMGC_NET for their tamagotchi news, since that.. Ya know, it's BanDai Japan's twitter.

I really, really hope that there will be an actual Tamagotchi coming out as well, not just some tacky clothes (no offence to anyone who actually likes them, but I really don't like the colours which they have used...) and an App. You know, not everyone can afford to get an iPhone (or an iPod, or whatever)... I also don't get how the video is promoting a Tamagotchi lifestyle when there wasn't a single Tamagotchi (as in the actual Tamagotchi) featured in it. But, on the other side, I was thinking about the whole "Bandai will not let you down!" comment, and thought that maybe they are kinda doing this on purpose? Because there a few hints that there might be a new Tamagotchi coming soon.

They are testing our faith? lol

Like I've said before, this whole LIFE thing could be for adults and teens, while they work on a new toy for kids.. Which you know, is the thing i'd like!

It does sound like Bandai may have something in the works. Hopefully we'll know something for sure soon.

I have recently found a picture of how the Tamagotchi L.I.F.E. clothes are supposed to look like... like I said before, I don't really like them (I prefer pastel colours to bright and dark ones).

IMO Building an "app" pretty much "kills" Tamagotchi itself --- as we all know, Tamagotchi is famous for being its own dedicated standalone toy which we all came to love, which sets it apart from everything else.

If it becomes an app, it's nothing more than just a piece of software installed in everybody's mobile devices. With many Tamagotchi-like apps lying around already, how can it stand out?

this could be very interesting seeing as that says a new toy is coming out and we might get a COLOR tamagotchi in English (excluding the ID L E of course)

Very true. I don't own a smart phone myself but my cousin does and one day we were going through all the virtual pet like Apps available because I was curious as to what was out there. There are TONS. It would be impossible for a Tamagotchi app to stand out. And it's funny, because all those apps are pretty much Tamagotchi clones anyway. Tamagotchi is the original and best Virtual pet. But there are just so many clones now that the Tamagotchi app would get lost in the crowd. The original would be overwhelmed by the knockoffs and that's just sad.

Ok, so guys,i was just thinking and MAYBE this might just be my imagination talking, but maybe we arent as un-lucky as we think, MAYBE this is just a test, to see how loyal we are to the brand, MAYBE this is our last chance, MAYBE,. just MAYBE this is all part of a bigger plan, We should really start to support this, or we may have to bear the consequences of never, ever, ever, seeing anything Tama branded again when we go to a store O_O (seriously guys, take my word for it, this is important)
