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 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

I'm still sticking with it being a new tama for the following reasons
1. L.I.f.e. is not run by bandi so it won't mean that.
2. Why would they relese a figure / accessory say for the Tama_go as it is the most recent but was released such a long time ago and it was a flop so why waste money on a failed product?

Therefore I predict new tama for 2013 :)

You know, not everything a company does ends up being so swell, I'm just saying.

However, there is a little glimmer of hope. Remember the English ID L? Those were made to test sales to see if there is a demand for them. Perhaps they did decently, and they are planning to release a English color tamagotchi here? That's very wishful thinking, but who knows.

Even so, with that possibility, I still think Tamagotchi LIFE is horrible, and quite frankly, I don't think it'll attract anybody to it, so.. Yeah,a huge waste of money!

That market test is being conducted by Bandai Asia and not America.

Then I guess all hope is lost : o

Oh well, just keep on supporting bandai Japan's far superior efforts. BanDai America messed up by going with these.. These sync beatz people.. So, yeah, they kind of deserve this backlash

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.


We are not 18+, although quite a lot of our younger members have got annoyed by people saying we are. And 10 year olds have every right to like Tamagotchi. I agree that Tamas should not become childish and ONLY for young children - but in the same way, young children should not be excluded from enjoying Tamagotchi. I agree with all you said except that, though.

Sorry but when I saw that they wanted your "childhood Tamagotchi sotries" I just had to
Oh but I guess we shouldn't complain too, much, after all, they're just trying to help us be "hip and happening," you know, to keep up with the times
