A new Tamagotchi? That would be so cool! But I'm not going to get my hopes up or anything. They did just release the Tamagotchi Friends so I don't know if they'd put another Tamagotchi on the market for awhile. In fact, the TF hasn't even come out where I live yet. But who knows? Maybe I'll have to put a new color tama on my wish list soon... ^_^

The TF was an European release, it had nothing to do with the Bandai JP. ;)

Oh, never mind then. You just lifted up my hopes a little. :)

Ultra-bright pink body, cream outline.... girly :P


Well, its color is girly, Bandai will release other colors too, I think this new Tama's design is really unisex, especially if you can make your own faceplates like a Tama-Go :)

Let me say I hate the pierces, they have cool features but SD card like cards to insert into the P's was a much better idea.
The pierces was a good idea, because Bandai doesn't need to release a new version just for some new characters (like the iD Lovely Melody and iD L Princess Spacy), so they should make something for this new version with similar features of the pierces, possibly SD cards...

I think the border of it is gold, not cream o3o;

Also, it seems to be much darker in color than previous Japanese Tamagotchis instead of being pastel.

So if you have a dark blue Tamagotchi with a gold rim, and put on a boyish faceplate, it wouldn't look girly B)

I think Bandai is trying to make Tamagotchi a bit more unisex since the new anime is a lot less girly even though there are lots of female characters~

That's true, since the original trio is bigger on the new anime's poster.
I've seen a lot of pictures of Japanese male children who like Tamagotchi, so they should make them unisex again.

I sort of wish that Miraitchi and Kururutchi don't come back, along with Yumemitchi and Kiraritchi, oh god, but they are sadly, i wish it was really back to normal, just with the extra Pianitchi, Coffretchi, Neenetchi and Orenetchi

Bandai JP's target audience is t(w)een girls.. don't hope for boyish colors. :/

 

 

Something I never got with the TFriends's marketing campain: their target group are little girls, 11 years and under. But, they keep saying over and over that the Tamagotchi is back after 17 years..? The kids don't care about that. And why would parents purchase them a cheap-looking, pixelated-screen $40 toy that does less than a free app on the Apple Store? Even Nintendo's facing problems : Apps are FREE.

Please STAY on topic. If you want to talk Tamagotchi Friends, make a new topic, don't continue it here. This is for Bandai Japan's "new" color tamagotchi.

Yellow, blue, orange, black, white, green and red are gender neutral and red is my favorite color since I was a kid, and I was a girly girl, not all girls like pinky stuff, I think it's all fault of Japanese girls if Tamas are getting girly and lolita, because Japanese girls prefer girly, childish and lolita stuff, while western girls prefer girly but stylish stuff, this is why the Tamagotchi Friends has better designs than the P's.
I actually hate girly childish loli stuff :P
If Japanese girls would be like western ones maybe Japanese releases would get better designs...but I actually think this new Tama is really gender neutral and obviously Bandai is not going to release just one color....blue+green would be really gender neutral *crossed fingers for a black+orange shell*
If not....I'll recolor it

Sorry :s i didn't mean to slip out! I add this;
-The TamaGoGo's might have a similar horrible marketing campaign axed towards young girls.. but before that, Bandai EU will have destroyed the Tamagotchi brand.

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. :P

Everyone may not have a infared phone here but you need to realise in Japan they all do it's now maybe they are moving towards smart phones which don't all have them.

I agree though that whatever happens this Tama NEEDS graphics innovation the style on the p's and idl really isn't that great character wise the rest is good but the character sprites are so poor compared to them on the id which had brilliant anime close ups. If you look at the new Anpan man tamago that has amazing graphics and the screen is smaller than the color Tama series which means they could do amazing things with this release.

Also if that Tama has a removable face plate I'm certain it will replace the deco pierces and for toys I actually wish they'd make a new version of some old toys like a telelin with LCD color same with pashalin and Watchalin and a pocket designer 2 I mean if the pocket designer itself can be color those can be too.
