Gudetama has arrived

Recommended Posts

Ahoy there, everyone. Today my Gudetama arrived and I've been running it for about three hours. Anyone else's arrived yet? I went with the yellow tama with the white silicone case. As everyone surmised, it's chibi sized and works quite similarly.


I'm not familiar with the Gudetama property whatsoever, so I don't know any of the characters here, but you start out with a baby yolk (Gudetama?) with a bonnet in a half shell. Cute, I suppose. Like the chibi you have two food options -- a regular meal and a tomato. Again like the chibi your Gudetama will only eat up to four meals depending on how long it's gone without food. With the tomatoes, however, there doesn't seem to be a cap. Is there some relevance to the tomatoes? It doesn't even look like your Gudetama actually eats them -- he just puts them in his shell.


There's also a game you can play at any time, which is basically three card monte with two eggs. Purely chance based, which is always a bummer. It has five rounds, and even winning just two seems to make your Gudetama happy.


There's a clock feature as always, with no 24-hour option, just 12-hour. Always weird how that feature comes and goes.


If you press C you get a little animation and a message from your Gudetama. Mine currently says "babu babu" in Katakana, which is just baby talk.


My Gudetama hasn't changed forms yet, and has only beeped at me once. From the instructions it looks like there are about three stages. We'll see how long it takes to transform.


I'm hoping to hear from some of you guys what you think about it. I've grown quite fond of chibis due to how low-key they are.

I got a Gudetama tamagotchi for my wife for Christmas, and it showed up today!


I didn't realize they were more like the minis, but it's still pretty cool. There's a lot of japanese compared to other tamagotchis, so we've been trying to translate them for most of the night. Watabou already covered most of it, and a lot of it is pretty standard tama fare, but it does deviate from the 20th anniversary minis a little, so I figured I'd put a little more up.

Anyway, press A, and you go to the main menu (shocking!)

The two options are:

1) Tabemono for food

2) Gemu for games. Like Watabou said, the game's a 'guess which one' using A and B, and yeah, as long as you get 2, it seems to make Gudetama happy.


The Tabemono menu has two options:
1) Shouyu (I think? I wasn't able to translate this one well) I'm GUESSING it's Shouyu though because it looks like a soy sauce dropper? This is Gudetama's main food.

2) Tomato - it's a tomato! Seems to be the treat.


Pretty standard stuff. Like Watabou said, hitting C will make Gudetama say stuff. "babu babu" seems to be what you always get when he doesn't have any needs. I'll have to wait until he needs anything to get the rest. He seems to get hungry WAY slower than other baby tamas, whichis interesting.


Other interesting things:
The screen is pretty deep-set. It's got more pixels than a mini, but it's so deep set that the sides can kinda shadow it. I got the one with the white silicone sleeve, which is good quality and doesn't seem like it'll wear our fast.

The sound is better than the mini. It's a bit lower in tone but I think it sounds nicer than the mini.

Overall, I'm really excited to see what it'll turn into! I don't know really any japanese myself, but I know a few people who might be able to help me translate some of the menus or the manual itself.

Actually, "babu" is Japanese for baby talk, so he's basically talking baby babble.

Oh yeah, I was just saying that he does that when he doesn't need anything else. I should have been keeping track of some of the other things he says when he's in a good mood. The only one I can remember off the top of my head is that his perfect care form says 'I'm being cute!'

I'm waiting for mine to get here. I ordered it from Japan, and I'm in America, so it may be a while. Can't wait though!

I've been running my gudetama for ~5 cycles and noticed that its lifespan seems to be 13 days.
Can anyone confirm?

      It looks like Gudetama Tamagotchis are coming to the USA and will only be available at GameStop.
      These awesome eggs are set to crack on December 15 2018 and are now available for preorder on the GameStop website(link below). The packaging is in English so I'm thinking the game will be also??

      Hi guys!
      I currently have a tama mix sanrio and dream. Every time I try to log into the website, it tells me that You can not log in to this service from the country or territory you registered. I was wondering how can I fix this and how will I be able to connect to my PC with my tama mixes? I'd appreciate any feedback.
      Thank you!

      I've been scarse on here for a while, and in the meantime, my collection has grown. I'm planning on making a blog or post or something showing off my collection.
      I was exclusively buying just the original style tamas; the ones without color. I love the simplicity of them, and I still think those are my favorite.
      But I decided to try out the Tamagotchi Plus Color. I loved it, but ran out of things to do after a while. So after more research, I decided to get a M!x, specifically the Sanrio one because I love the idea of having resemblances of Bandai and Sanrio characters together.
      And I absolutely love it! I like how there's so much more that you can do on there, so it will take longer to have done everything on there.
      Anyone else have one of these awesome tamas?

      I bought what looked like a strawberry eye-patch from the store while my tamagotchi was a toddler. (it's the only accessory I've gotten so far) So I thought the accessory text wasn't lighting up for me because my tamagotchi was a toddler. But now that my tama is an teenager, the accessory option is still greyed out. So I am wondering where did that strawberry eye-patch thing that I paid alot for go? Since it's telling me there is still nothing in my accessories.

      This is my first Tamagotchi ever, and it's the m!x Sanrio ver.

      I recently acquired a Gudetama Tamagotchi, but I haven't had a Tamagotchi since I was really little, and I'm having trouble understanding how it works. I also don't read Japanese, which makes this especially tricky
      From what I understand thus far, there are two food options (snack, and meal), and one game I can play. The A button lets me pick between options, and B lets me select an option, and also takes me to the clock. C is cancel.

      However, there is a lot I still don't understand – should my screen always stay on? I'm not supposed to turn the Tamagotchi off at any point, am I? When he's asleep, should I just let him sleep? I have figured out that, when he goes to sleep, I have the option to turn the light on and off.
      When he's awake, I've figured out that the C button "calls" him and checks his status. Naturally, since these are in Japanese, I can't read them. Some of them I've been able to figure out just by comparing them to the other options (like when he wants a certain food) but others I'm a bit confused about...

      I know this is a relatively new Tamagotchi, but does anyone else have any other bits of information that might be helpful?

      Thank you so much!

      Is there any growth chart out there for sanrio mix?
      I would like to get Momotchi as It seems to be obtainable only on 1st gen...But I have no idea which conditions should I meet.
      Edit: I found the thread about the spacy/melody version but there are obviously some differences. Anyone has come up with one for the Sanrio yet?
