Boxing day? That doesn't sound like a very good idea, you would have thought that it would be released before christmas? So maybe it's not a physical toy but rather a UK Tamagotchi LIFE release?

Well, whatever it is, I'm quite excited. If it's a new toy altogether you think there'd be more advertisement of it, otherwise the product won't do so well, especially after the several year long gap that we've experienced after Tama-GO flopped. Not only that, but new releases are more likely to go to America first, but maybe it's different in this scenario since they're currently in Tama-LIFE's development. It's very possible that they'll be releasing iD, but a new release isn't necessarily entirely ruled out.

My post from Tama-Zone. ;)

I sent Bandai UK an email asking if the new Tamagotchi would be available in US and Australia and they said:

Dear Amelia

Thank you for your enquiry.

We are launching a new Tamagotchi on Boxing Day this year alongside a brand new website. Follow our Facebook page for more details nearer the time www.facebook.com/bandaiuk

Kind regards
Bandai UK Ltd


...That's the exact same thing they said to Sarah. And they didn't even answer my question.

They don't want to answer your question, either because it won't be available in the US and Australia, or because they don't know yet where it will be available. I imagine that it depends on whether they're popular enough in the UK; they don't want to waste money distributing a product that may not sell.

Not trying to be a Malfoy or anything --- but that's a pretty vague response (see how they used the word "potentially")  :P

 

We might as well just wait until that date they were specifying and see what they're really up to. :D

I think they're just using words like "potentially" and "might" because they don't want to give too much away... I honestly think they're planning something cool!

I noticed that BandaiUS put all their Tamagotchi cartoons in "season 1".

Why now? Could they be making MORE. O.O

Hey... Just a note. This is for Tamagotchi UK NOT the USA. So please keep these separate if you are going to keep speaking of the USA Tamagotchi rumors...

*nag over*

I was browsing the internet on any new information and found this.

It's interesting, it looks like a combination of the ID-L and the Tama-Go to me. It's cool, even though it's not in color.

great news. though the image is definatley fake. the desription seems pretty legit though.   why the hell isnt it in color. "this toy is designed to appeal to the modern generation of kids who are seeing it for the very first time." well guess what bandai, the modern generation is use to ipads and laptops. not putting it in color is already a massive fail.

I wouldn't be disappointed if that was the new tamagotchi. The description says it uses NFC, so no more infrared? And The sending messages feature would sound awesome if I had friends who were into tamas lol. And I really don't mind the black/white screen, at least it's gray scale, which I kind of like! I wonder how much it would cost?

 

P.S. We upgraded from infrared before Japan did, be happy!

It says 25 pounds, which is about 40USD...I'm thinking it'll be $25 though. :P I'm happy it's in black and white; remember how the English iD L was $70? I like black and white screens o3o

 

I'm SO excited! It's a new Tamagotchi! We're Tamagotchi fans right? We can buy color screen Tamagotchis online anyway so as long as we get NEW ENGLISH TAMAGOTCHI I'm happy! I'm dying of happiness actually. XD I hope the TamaTalk and Tama-Zone communities aren't too fussy and negative or else it may discourage Bandai. Definitely buying a bunch of these!!
