Since this Tamagotchi has no pierces, I really want it to have a lot more built-in content. Not everyone has a phone / infra red USB. I'm tired of Japanese color Tamagotchis only having two games. Three games, yes! Two games, no.
I hope they're completely reinnovating the color Tamagotchis' format. ID was very different from TMGC+C. iD L was quite different from iD. P's wasn't much different from the iD L though. Same item animations and getting-four-happy-things concept. The new anime is very polished with new background music, eyecatch, and better animation. I have high expectations for this Tamagotchi to be a big step from the previous versions. New way of unlocking locations maybe? Different way of collecting the happy stamps/pieces? I'm really excited. I'm not too fond of the tiny studs around the screen but maybe they don't look as bad on the real Tamagotchi.
I wonder if they will make other Tamagotchi electronic toys. Doesn't seem like it. D: Yume Kira Dream anime had the Yume Kira Bag toys. Miracle Friends had the Pocket Designer and Watchlin toys. GO-GO Tamagotchi brought all the characters together and the only new ones are Orenetchi and Neenetchi. They don't have any items. None of the characters have new special items so I don't see what electronic toys they could make. Maybe they'll surprise us though. Maybe they'll have an electronic toy of Oyajitchi's cart somehow lol.
Also, with the return of Chamametchi, Kuromametchi, Lovelitchi, and all those characters, I wonder how many characters will be on the upcoming Japanese Tamagotchi and whether there will be many new ones. There better be Tropicatchi.
