There would be so many royalties for a Pokemon pierce. Choising would be near pointless or all ledgendaries or starters... Bandai would have to pay Nintendo, GameFreak and whomever else had a part, like the artists... Blah.

I feel we could definitely create a new topic about the P's still since this is huge? Yes?

All I ask if they make a Nintendo themed pierce, is that they keep Mariotchi's original design from Tamagotchi World for the Nintendo 64.  He's one of the most cleverly designed Tamagotchi characters based on another series in my book.  :)

A Hamtaro pierce would be cool, but this show/manga is so old and no longer continued (I think?) it would be tricky to get the rights. Or Doraemon pierce!

Well...Mario Biondi performed in Japan, and Re:Jazz too, and they don't perform in Italy since 2006, and if you what you said is real well jazz is more popular in Italy, but they don't perform in my country.Let me say usually crossovers are for money purposes, and if they want to make crossovers, why don't they make a Conan pierce like the Conan iD?And maybe a Lupin the 3rd pierce too.I don't like the Ciao pierce because Tamagotchi isn't on Ciao and I don't understand gijinka, Tamagotchi is a virtual pet...I must confess I'm not interested in any kind of pierce, but I hate the collaboration idea.Bandai made crossovers pierces just to make little girls happy, not to make sense.
Look mommy!A Tamagotchi with Hello Kitty! -_- thanks Bandai to ruin Tamagotchi since 2009

Well, tamagotchis are no longer a virtual pet per se, more of a "take care of that anime character even though they'd normally be pretty capable of taking care of themselves". I like the anime and tamagotchis, but yeah, the brand is getting odd. And anyway, the crossover pierces are there probably because tamagotchis apparently are getting less and less popular in Japan... That's probably also why they focus on anime so much. Let's not forget, companies are there to make money, no profit-no franchise. And Japan had a big budget cut lately making many online games and franchises to shut down, I'm kind of scared that it might happen to Tamagotchi one day... :/

You know what would be awesome? An Oden-Kun Pierce. It seems I'm one of the few who actually like the collaboration pierces, the chibi anime characters are so cute! Tamagotchi needs to gain fans to keep going and the collab. pierces are the way to do it. I don't think having a Hello Kitty pierce ruins tamagotchi AT ALL. Its one of my favourite pierces actually...I don't really understand why so many people hate the pierces and say they're a waste of money. Personally I'm happier buying a pierce than having Bandai release a whole new tama for a couple of new characters (I'm looking at you Princess Spacey iD L!)

I wonder if it's worth it buying a Tamagotchi P's. I really love the design and the Pierces thing but it's in Japanese and I'm afraid I'll miss half the fun D:

There are a lot of guides out there to help you understand what the menus are. :) You won't miss much, actually, since there's a decent fan base and new content is being translated all the time. I saw a video of someone who had a dedicated Tamagotchi Notebook where she printed out EVERYTHING and put into those protective sleeves, everything from growth charts to TamaTomos to menu translations. There's an idea if you wish to invest the time in doing do.

 

If you're still undecided, you could always start with an earlier model in Japanese to get a feel for it. I suggest the ID L for this, or if you can get one for a decent price, an ID. The ID is the most simplest, but after each generation of Tama, a lot of the menus and concepts carry over. The +Color is the earliest of the color screens, but it's a little different in that it can age to an oldie and I think it can die, so if you want something bare bones, that one is the way to go. But if you want something like the P's, you can't go wrong with an ID L or even an ID. (There's also ID Ls in English thanks to translation by Bandai Asia, so if you're REALLY against Japanese, that will work, too, and yes, they can connect to Japanese ID Ls and P's--it is the only color Tamagotchi in English, too.)

To me english iDL's are a waste of money. They're too expensive and the translation is bad, and it's not like the dialogues are any useful. (I still want it, but come on, 100$ for it? You can buy an Devilgotch for this much if you're very lucky.)

Actually there's a few English ID Ls on Ebay right now for 80 ish with free shipping, brand new.

I had the same opinion until I caved and got one for a good deal. I really love being able to understand everything at the park and in the letters. I end up running my English iD L a lot more than my Japanese ones, though I don't think the English ones are worth that much over the Japanese ones.

Hi all, can I ask you guys, do you need 4 tamagotchi P to play "connection game" from the various pierce (disney, Sanrio etc) or just 2 P will do? I am asking because I was looking at the manual (that always come with the various pierces) and under the connection game, the picture always show 4 different characters. I can't understand jap and so I assume that you need 4 P to play.

No, those are just characters you can get via change pierces in a single P's. You don't need 4, just 1, and depending on the character you raise, you can get those transformations.

For the connection games, you need at least two P's to play, but you can have up to four.

baha $100 devilgotchi..er hilarious! i was hunting for a devilgotchi for the past year and the cheapest i was able to snag mine for was $200..

 

i have the english id l in yellow but i was fortunate enough to get mine for a trade so i didnt spend alot getting one..i will say im in love with them yes the translations are a little funny here and there but i think thats some critical opinions going on  there lol...but i have seen the english id l's go as low as $65 lately 0.0 so not sure whats with the price drop but they truly are dropping now...also i will say that the p's is a lovely version and the collaborative deko pierces make so much more special...if you think about it its just like the collaborative tamagotchi versions such as the oden-kun. and trust me that tamagotchi is so darn adorable!

 

i have no clue what the future holds for a next version of tamagotchi..the p's is pretty much as good as i can imagine it getting but who knows, besides the english releases bandai never lets ya down and always comes up with amazing design and new ideas...well in my opinion anyways lol im sure there are some of you that will most definitely disagree lol ^.^

It's currently unknown. Although it's been for a year now a new pierce every month or two depending on the situation (such as anime series etc) at the moment there is about 0 information on future pierces leading to speculation of a new version,delay or possibly no more pierces are to be released.

You'll have to wait and see what happens because currently there is no new info.

Thank you all for your answers!

And that Tamagotchi Notebook is actually a very good idea, might do that *^*

I think I'll try and buy a Tamagotchi P's for my birthday. I saw too many cute photos of it on tumblr and well.. I really want one now xD
