That actually makes a lot of sense.
Hm.... I'm still confused on the fashion part, mostly because it only seems to affect big areas, like Hollywood/LA and all that. So I'm going on the assumption that marketing for such things will be kept to the big cities. Who is funding this? Bandai America or Bandai Japan? I mean you guys at Life specifically. I wish to know their target audience and what they're hoping to achieve, as well as questioning if, over time, will it be expanded out to other audiences as well, such as older generations maybe, and of course males.
I guess I can't see the solid connection between clothes and retro-styled handheld games, it almost seems backwards. Logically I'd have done the pet first, clothes after, but that's just a personal opinion.
Let's say, however, things do push through, will we eventually get something worthwhile perhaps? And I'm hoping it won't be something like the Tama-Go 2.0 or something, but I mean something new and exciting, or perhaps a color Tama like Japan has. Or is there a whole different direction being taken? I saw the app thing.... going the route of the Furby maybe? Have a Tama that responds to an app? Might be a farfetched idea, but just wondering. Or is it just a straight up app in and of itself? In which case I cannot utilize it, I do not own a tablet or smartphone.
I understand if you can't fully answer things due to a contract and all, but any light that can be shed without jeopardizing your job would be much appreciated.
