Not sure if its already included but I'd like a pedometer to be included into the tamagotchi, and with it you'd unlock milestones and prizes for your tamagotchi. Milestones would be like '1000 steps taken, tama gets sporty outfit' or '3000 steps taken super special hidden game unlocked'. Then once all the milestones are unlocked steps could just reward you with mystery bags that have a chance of anything from treats, money, or a random stat boost token.

It would be fun to have something on the tama that would require you to be active with it.

Oh, like the TamaWalkie and Arukotch versions. Pedometer pets are really fun, TamaWalkie travels across North America based on your steps, trying to find pieces of their ufo that shattered into a zillion pieces (they've got imagination). It would be great to have a TamaWalkie with color pixels.
I don't have an Arukotch, but on this one, a girl Tamagotchi walks around looking for boys and treats, a bit shallow, but probably fun, imo.
That would be fun to incorporate into the ideal Tamagotchi.

I have an idea for an option that gets tama in the "fast mode", but I'm not talking about faster growth or anything like that, no. It just makes animations of cleaning, bathing, planting seeds etc quicker, for instances if you're at school and need to get things quickly done. I would appreciate that option because I like to watch all the cute animations but they last a bit too long, for instance it's hard to clean up and wash an iD L on the end of the pause at school...

That sounds seriously awesome, just like a Pokewalker. And here are my suggestions for more neat features: it has color like an iD L and infared connection

I just got my tama ID L sadly it arrived broken (dang USPS -.-) so it keeps beeping and I cant see the screen to know whats wrong with it, but I came up with another idea!

Schedule Feature
This would have it so you could set up a time schedule that works with your days (for those of us who go to school or work)
-Time Setting 1 Sleep: You can pick an 8-9 hour time period during the day that it will sleep by picking the start time so it sleeps when you sleep. (I work grave shifts so often I sleep during the day. This would be nice!
-8 hour Daycare/School/Work Setting: This would be an optional time setting that you could turn on in the schedule menu setting a start time for when it will go to daycare/school/work. After 8 hours it will come home.

It would also be neat if its daily schedule counted into its meters to determine what tama it grows into. You'd be able to change the schedules at any time but if you change the sleep meter the tama would take naps through out the day to make up for the sleep change.

USB/Infared Accessory (Would allow more customization, and language change)
Also maybe a USB-Infared accessories sold separately that would allow people to connect to eachother online, and give you more access to your downloading section without the use of a phone. It could come on a sort of USB stick with a tamagotchi theme to it with a keychain so you can hang it on your tama. Maybe have a built in 'studio' game so you can create your own wallpapers. Or even a system so you can swap in a language option so you can get language files made by other fans and swap it out or even re-write your own for it.

It would just need an alphabetical format, then you'd go down all the dialog in the game to translate it or re-write it, then have a re-written tama. Bandai wouldn't have to translate it at all with the community making their own translation files. Then to change it just download a translation file and alphabet format, throw it in the folder on your computer and choose a language swap through your USB.

Schedule Feature


Please don't take this response as being 'antagonistic' or what; just contributing to a healthy discussion ---

When you take care of real-life pets, you "alter" your schedule for them and make adjustments. You can't tell your dog/cat to "hibernate" or "stop growing" while you're at work or doing something else. What you do is prepare something to make sure that they are well-taken care of during your absence, and make up for it once you're back. Tamagotchi is made to mimic these real-life concepts - and time management is one of the challenges and perks of taking care of a pet, be it a real-life or a virtual one. :)

Back on topic, if I am to contribute an idea for a possible V9, I'd like for it to have smoother animations. The 2fps animation for the Tamagotchi is fun, but not fun enough :P

I'll go over my idea again about the sleepytime feature to put your Tama to sleep during naptime or bedtime. Turn on the mobile that gently spins around and around and rub your Tama's tummy gently to put it to sleep. It's pretty cute.

Feel free to pull ideas from this concept (Tamagotchi VIBE) I mocked up about a year ago. Here are a few pictures, but if you'd like to read up on the features, the topic can be FOUND HERE. (It's now a locked topic)

So far this V9 sounds very interesting. Lots of great ideas! Can't wait to see what other ideas everyone else comes up with. :)

Get the thread unlocked or reposted =o can we start a petition through change.org to try and get Bandai America to look at this more? Maybe if they marketed to teens and young adults with the promise of facebook and twitter features we can get them to start on something similar :B


Another suggestion:
Non-Language Tamagotchis. With the new graphics of the colored tamagotchi's it would be possible to remove language altogether as it doesnt contribute hugely to the gameplay as many people who buy japanese ones who dont speak japanese would know. A Non-Language Tama would make it more likely for us to get one that is being marketed all over. It would communicate with Emote Bubbles, pictures, and actions.

I don't think unlocking the Tamagotchi VIBE topic will make any difference, but I appreciate your enthusiasm. Like I mentioned previously, I included pictures and a link from that topic as a contribution to this new "V9" Tamagotchi idea list.

Please also keep in mind that Bandai has a "no idea submission" policy. If Bandai wants to create something new, they will do it on their own terms. All we can do is influence them through example...and that example is us expressing creativity, generating positive discussion, and creating interesting and forward-thinking topics such as this one.

When I started this topic, I had no idea everyone would come and post their ideas, I thought this was stupid! FOUR PAGES! Thanks much guys!

And graficks, that looks like an awesome mockup.

Here is a new idea. Maybe better for a specific Tamagotchi baby, but I think a motion sensor and light sensor would add another dynamic. Making it so you have to be careful not to wake your baby by turning on the lights or being ruff with the egg.

We forgot one thing, guys...;)

What is the name of the Tamagotchi?

Well, I'd prefer something not too simple but not too complex. Any ideas?

Yup - it's a V9, but the V7 is not just called V7 is it? It's called the Tama-Go, so maybe we should give this one a name as well. ;)
