Gudetama Tamagotchi

Recommended Posts

Hello,

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 :huh:

 

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!

If you've got facebook, joining this group (everyone I've seen so far have been super lovely so far!), and checking out this video! I copied the text from the post for you, but recommend watching the video. I really want to get one lol

"So just a quick video to show you guys what the Gudetama play flow looks like.
Press A button and you have two options: Food or Game.
In the food option, you can give him Soy Sauce as food, or Tomato as snack (LoL this is soooo random, I love it).
Since hes full at the moment, I only selected the snack option.
Then the game play, basically he hides in an egg, and you pick A button for left egg, or B button for right egg.

Then basically in the main screen, if you press B its time, and C the gudetama reacts to you.

Hope this helps with anyone trying to make decision on this cute little tama!!"

No, you do not need to turn your Tamagotchi off. It is designed to stay on and go through a routine like a living creature. It will go to bed at night and then wake up in the morning, what hours this happens depends on what character you have. When it wants to sleep, which is indicated by it sleeping in a bed with "zzz" in the air, turn off the lights so that it can sleep easily. Going to bed marks the end of the day for Tamagotchis.

 

This topic goes into more detail about the Gudetama. I'm assuming it is like the Nano which in turn is like the Mini, basically a very low maintenance version where caring for it consists of feeding, cleaning up after it, and keeping it happy (which is done by a minigame in both the Nano and the Gudetama). The care given to a Tamagotchi determines what character it grows into. Unlike other versions, the Gudetama - like the Tamagotchi Nano and the Tamagotchi Mini/Chibi - is a simplified version thus there are less care areas to monitor.

I also don't read Japanese, which makes this especially tricky :huh:

Though this won't cover everything on any sort of Tamagotchi, a guide like this might be worth reading, as it will teach you some common words used in menus in Japanese games - things like "Yes/No", "Start/End", and so on.

 

This is a catch-all list and, not owning a Gudetama Tamagotchi myself, I don't know how much of it, if any of it, applies, but with any luck it might shed some light on something that you might run into.

Hehe, this isn't very random - those are both things that you have with eggs. :lol:

I saw you already saw my post in the other Gudetama thread, but I should be getting the translated manual back from my friend today and will upload what I have. Looks like pretty much everything has been covered already. XD

When he sleeps, you have to turn off the light, just as with early versions of the Tamagotchi
To do this press the A button to bring up the lights menu, then press A again to select the bottom option ('Lights off') and press B to confirm

 

A really helpful video i found was this one by Uncle Loves Things on YouTube!

      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??

      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.

      Hello,
      at the moment I only have an iDL (english), but plan to collect another tamagotchi near future.
      I'm confuse deciding between P's, Sanrio Mix, or even latest Bandai Gudetama (this Dec, 2017)...
      not to mention PriPri-Chan Shot (tomy dakara).. all seems nice..
       
      But I can only buy one more toy this year..
      which one best to get?
       
      (i hope the one I get will be the one which will be translated to English),
      I know P's is fully translated to English now, but is it worth it to accompany my iDL?do they so different?
      while i heard mix is very different..

      I'm currently trying to figure out the latest launch of tamagotchi x Sanrio. However, they are all in Japanese and I've found limited guides on its usage. The basic navigation has been smooth so far. I'm seeking further help to figure out how to hatch a Gudetama. I greatly appreciate any help! Thank you!
