Tamagotchi M!X - New Bandai Trademark

Recommended Posts

Is it just me, or have the prices for the M!X so far been much cheaper than previous versions? Someone who preordered a 4U or 4U+ could probably confirm or deny this much better than me.

4U+ is ¥5980 at TamaDepa, but it seems like there isn't a standard list price for M!X anywhere. I've seen it selling for anywhere between ~¥4400 (amiami) to ~¥5600 (Amazon) so I wouldn't say it's significantly cheaper, on average. The lack of standard pricing is actually pretty baffling.

 

No idea if that has any bearing on a possible NA release, though.

No one has brought this up yet, but the communication technology can't possibly be IR. If you look at any infrared comunication port, be it on a tamagotchi, phone or tv remote, the ports always appear to be dark red or black. Infrared communication transfers information using pulses of infrared light. The color of the port is used to block out other wavelengths of light to reduce interference. If you look at the ports on the M!X, the colors of the ports co-ordinate with the colors of the tama, and none of them are dark red.

interesting didn't realise it had to be red... that's strange wonder what the heck it is then I mean it has to be IR right? how is it connecting? I am seriously baffled! do you know of anything it could possibly be?? no articles mention the type of connection they just state item downloads and marriage

 

Also regarding pricing on what pivot poogie said, I just found out that the toy is listed as an open price meaning it is priced based on store's individual value of the toy

 

so stores would buy it wholesale probably for around 20-25 per tamagotchi and decide to sell it for around 40-50 depending on what competitors value it as. seeing as the high prices for the 4u I think were a factor in it selling poorly.

Perhaps they connect with some sort of sound sensor? I know it may sound a little farfetched but if you pay attention to the video the tamas play a tone before the connection symbols appear both between them, as well with the station...

the video says it's 本体同士connection which is like full body connection I think which sorta comes up like 3ds style connection but other sights are saying it's just IR so who knows....

Does anyone know what the differences are going to be besides the fact that you can't raise meloditchi on one and you can on the other? I can only get one so I wanna know what all of the differences will be.

Besides that? I would guess not much else. At the most, maybe different items or backgrounds to fit the Space/Music themes.

I found an Instagram feed with some new pictures of the M!X here. Nothing in particular really except for the fact that Clulutchi is there for some reason.

Here are some pictures from the 2016 Tokyo Toy Show where the Tamagotchi M!X won an award for being the top communication device!

I have heard from Igel-Fullmetal that you can now breed hybrid children depending on the pair. Like a Watawatachi and a Mametchi could end up with something cute or something kooky (as it only does 2 possibilities with each pair). The choice is up to the owner. They also have a minigame on the Tamagotchi channel site where you can see the possibilities on some of the males and females if they bred together.

 

There are two versions. Spacy M!X and Melody M!X. I might do both Melody and Spacy, or just Spacy if I have to make a choice XD But I am excited that we can now breed our Tamas and have hybrids.

 

 

I am so stoked for these Tamagotchis to come on Amazon so I can buy one.

I like how the Spacy versions have bold, darker colors while the Melody versions have pastel colors. These pictures really bring out that distinction.

The fortune telling game is great. :D Playing it makes me really want to get a M!X now. My favorite combination that I discovered is Gozarutchi and Violetchi where the offspring gets Gozarutchi's ninja outfit and Violetchi's eyes. So cute!

The devices themselves have such a great design, they look so pretty!

Aaaa- I feel like they would be really successful here in the Usa, due to their new feature, plus the color screen. Also, does anyone else think that their price might be significantly cheaper after the preorders?

I do agree this would be a great tamagotchi to bring to the US, but it all depends on bandai xox;

      Initially, nothing existed, nothing but microscopic atoms the size rivaling that of ants and pieces of rice, but in a matter of moments, our Lord brought everything we know into existence. Delving into the universe, the various galaxies, our galaxy, the Milky Way, is a beautiful blue and green planet that we call home; Earth.
      Earth is a beautiful, luscious planet, unlike any of its eight fellow planets. It has thirst-quenching water, gorgeous scenery, and most importantly, the presence of life. Life began with a bunch of animals, a man named Adam, and a woman named Eve, and as the centuries and millenniums kept going, regardless of their differing events, all moments of history have one thing in common; life slowly but surely grew swifter, stronger, and most prominently, smarter, and and all associated capabilities of speed, strength, and knowledge lie within a special element of our bodies called the brain.
      The brain is a sacred treasure guarded by the thick layers of our skulls. It processes every sight our eyes visualize, every scent our noses get lured to, everything our hands feel, every sound our ears hear, and every bite of food our mouths and taste buds consume, and above all this can provide the answers to some of life's biggest questions. Where do babies come from? What's the highest SAT/ACT score? Will we get a spouse or be single until death? Will we succeed in getting our dream job?
      But later today, at any time, Bandai America is going to answer life's most frequently-asked question, a question that was passed from vocal cord to vocal cord generation after generation, a question that not even the lord himself knows the answer to, a question that humanity has been plaguing since the beginning of time as we know it.
       
      WHEN WILL THE TAMAGOTCHI ANIME EVER GET AN ENGLISH DUB?!

      Hello I'm new to this website and I've been using my old tamagotchi connection v3 for about a month now. The screen on my device is fairly beat up and I was curious if I could find some official or third party screen replacement for the Tamagotchi Connection v3.

      I notice no one really talking about the Hello Kitty Nano that's rumored to be a NA release. Not much is known but it was leaked and information is coming in slowly but its timed to be released in the fall as well. It has 2 colors and is due this October for release. Hopefully we will see more info during the next bandai news letter or during a announcement on their social media!

      Hey!
      Tamagotchis have been with me through my childhood. Now I am an 18-year-old who occasionally transforms into a total tama-stan. XD
      I've currently got booted up a connection v2! However, since I last used it, I think it may have bugged out slightly... I downloaded my old tama (petitchi, gen 12) to find that the age of my tama was 61??? Not sure how that happened. XD
      My first ever tamagotchi was the connection v4.5 <3, I got it for my eighth birthday and I loved it soo much!!! However, it just so happens to be the only tama I have that no longer works!! 😢 It's really hard to replace that model.
      Anyway! I thought now is a good time to return once again to my hobby, since I'm inside all the time, haha! 
       
      My collection of tamagotchis:
      Tamagotchi P2 (J)
      Connection v2 (E)
      Connection v5.5 (Celebrity Familitchi) (E)
      Connection v6 (Music Star) (E)
      Tamagotchi Friends (E)
      Gudetama Tamagotchi (E)
      ...oh! and a Violetchi lanyard.
      I'm also planning on purchasing some more japanese models! I've been hopping about on ebay, looking for good deals. 😛 As the v4.5 is so hard to come by from what I can tell, I am definitely considering investing in the Ura Jinsei Enjoi, which features my beloved Ura tamas!! 😮
      I'm always open for discussions!! If you have any questions for me, or stories to tell, please don't hesitate to comment!!
