The ID and ID-L/TMGC+C are version 8, the Tama-Go being version 7. Now to list the ideas for my Tamagotchi V9.
(Prepare for a long post.)
Characters: This is a tough decision to make. All characters couldd get a spotlight, and since this Tama would have bigger memory for new characters and items, etc. I think it should include all or MOST characters from these main Tamagotchis:
Morino Tamagotchi/Tamagotchi Garden
Maybe some characters would have redesigns? Like Kuromametchi having a tuft of hair under his black cap.
Also it would include new characters:
Personally I think all characters should get a spotlight!
Gameplay: When you first start up the Tamagotchi, you will be greeted with a birthday and name screen like all other versions, after entering your name, the Tamagotchi logo will appear and you go to a screen that says:
You choose one of them, and depending which one you choose, that's what kind of game you'll get. (If you select Normal you get a regular Tamagotchi Connexion-esque experience, if you select Angel you will get gameplay similar to the Tama Angel.)
After raising a Tama to Age 6, the Date Place is unlocked. But if your Tamagotchi reaches Age 9, the matchmaker will also come. The character you marry depends on what type of gameplay you are using. After they have a baby, you again can choose what gameplay you want the baby to follow.
Some features from older Tamas are carried over, like the Cafe, Clothes shop, Food Shop, School, Work, etc.
It will also be backlit and in-color and the battery will last longer. The shop can now hold more than 20 items at a time, greatly increasing your options.
When a tama reaches Gen 5, the shrine of memory is unlocked, where you can spend 10000gp to recreate an old Tama that died or left.
And the games? Bug Shoot, Guess My Direction, Tama Fans, Coin Catch, Long Jumper 2, Shine Up, Rock it, and all of your favorite games included.
Name: I would call it a Tamagotchi Generation, due to it having features of nearly every Tama.
Connection: It can connect to Tama-Go's and Tamagotchi Music stars, and also other Tama Generations. However connectability would be limited if you are connecting to old versions. Instead of infra red, it uses internet now. But if internet is not available, it uses infra red as a replacement. And if you are connecting to an old version, then infra red can be used.
New Technical Stuff: A backlight would be amazing. There is also an option for touch controls, but you can switch between them. It is also thinner, and the gotchi figures will be made thinner too. An Ipod app could be used on-the-go to connect to your Tama anywhere. This way if you lose it, you can just take care of it from your ipod or iphone.
That's all I got for now!
