I'm going to start sending Bandai stuff about what I DO NOT like about Tamagotchi these days....they need a real dose of that.....I suggest you do that too :(

I'm not sure if that is the best idea!!

If you only received criticism from your so-called fans, would you really want to keep rewarding them with new stuff? I personally would just let them complain to themselves and be mad.

Instead of complaining, how about telling Bandai what you LIKE about Tamagotchi?

Hey, let's all keep in mind that these are all assumptions, meaning that we don't know for sure if they are not going to release a new tamagotchi. For all we know, a plan might be in the works and this is to reel people into the label to get them excited about it, so this way they'll want to buy the new Tamagotchi.
Also, people have been asking for a Tama based app, kind of like raising a real Tamagotchi on the iPhone or iPad. That might be in the works as well.
Let's all try to keep an open mind and not to jump to conclusions or think so negatively until the expo is over. The media can skimp or over dramatize things too. ;)

I do think that a Tamagotchi iPhone all would be good. I think as time is moving on, iPhone apps are becoming more popular.

They should still create new tamagotchi for the fans. We will just have to wait till next month and see what happens. :L

I wouldn't mind a Tamagotchi app as long as it is on Android also and not just the iPhone. I have a virtual pet app that I've had some fun with on my Android, and I think an official tamagotchi one would be fun. That said, I am not too keen on new forms of tamagotchi digital media. I had the original tamagotchi gameboy game, and I noticed they are considering some new video game releases. Tamagotchi only interests me as a virtual pet, not as other types of games, and even if they released a virtual pet game for a system like the Nintendo 3DS or PS Vita, I really would not prefer that to an actual tamagotchi toy. The great thing about the Tamagotchi toy is that it is very small and portable, and that it is on at all times, so it really is a pet that can go with you anywhere, that you have to take care of around the clock. I think that's fun, whereas if it was on a gaming system like the 3DS, first of all it's not nearly as portable due to size. Secondly, you couldn't leave it on all the time unless you wanted to keep the system docked or plugged in, so it isn't really as practical as an actual virtual pet toy, even if they make a virtual pet game. Even if it's on a cell phone, your battery isn't exactly going to permit around the clock play and monitoring without it being plugged in periodically.

Really, I'd just like to see a light up color version like the ID L come out in the US. I am really interested to try the ID L, but even though I am learning Japanese, I'd rather have an English version for ease of use.

Also, I noticed someone mentioned in an earlier topic that it may well be that this may mean Tamagotchi will be used in those silly retro nostalgia t-shirts you see at Wal-Mart and Target and every other place, where they stick some old retro thing on there and a stupid phrase or adult joke. I really, really hope that isn't where things are headed.

All I honestly care about is a new virtual pet toy. If it's just a bunch of little knick knacks and clothes and stuff, I really won't be spending my money on them. I wouldn't mind having one tamagotchi t-shirt, but that's about it. I have a suspicion they may end up only being children's sized clothing anyway.

Maybe this is a test from Bandai to see if Tamagotchi is still popular before they spend money on releasing a new Tamagotchi.

I agree with both of you, this was exactly what I thought of once I read over the articles. (After jumping up and down and saying "Yay!".) Yes, it sounds like t-shirts, and keychains but, hey, wouldn't it be fun to have a Tamagotchi keychain that you didn't have to order from Japan? This does sound a bit like a test to see if us fans are still out there, and we are. Maybe if it's popular, a new Tamagotchi will come out!

This line could also be completely different than what we thought. We don't really know yet, because we'll have to wait for the expo. (And for Bandai to reply to my email. :P )
(Edit: Typo.)

THis cheered me up at first, but now I'm suspicious. When the articles made references to "apps and social media", I got skeptical. I don't have a tablet or a smartphone. I'm worried the prevalance of these new tech-toys will leave those of us who haven't been absorbed by the phenomenon in the dust.

As I looked in topics....Bandai said they would not release anything until the summer of 2013..(Well that's in the UK at least)

But, maybe things have changed now..we just have to wait and see.

Yes... But perhaps this isn't a new Tamagotchi that they're releasing? It certainly doesn't sound like one to me. We'll just have to wait and see, I suppose.

Since the thing that they are gonna show us what Tamagotchi L.I.F.E is at June 12. that only means we have 2 weeks left tell they are going to say what it is!

Actually, making the Tamagotchi virtual pet into a smartphone app makes a lot of sense! The Tamagotchi's form factor is made to be easily portable, and what is more portable than the phone you carry with you every day? Plus, Bandai could add lots of new features, as well as a vibrant look, to Tamagotchi, without shooting the price per unit up!
