Ladies and gentlemen, its the moment we’ve been waiting for! Bandai America has done an excellent job drowning us in every single series of the 2017 Tamagotchi Mini, but this time, it appears we’re getting the real deal.

A GameStop employee was snooping around the inventory system and discovered some new Tamagotchi products, specifically the 2017 P1 & P2 which were just released in Japan on November 23rd 2017 to wrap-up the 20th anniversary festivities.

A Tamagotchi fan on Imgur has posted images of the GameStop inventory showing off the new P1 & P2’s which are scheduled to hit shelves on August 15th 2018! Although this seems pretty far out, its uncertain whether there will be pre-orders. There are a whole bunch of shell designs that have been leaked on a popular toy website, Toy Panic. Theres a mix of original shells you’ve seen in the late 90’s in the United States along with some new designs too.

It appears that Bandai will be branding these as “Tamagotchi Original”, which they believe will differentiate them from the 2017 Mini. The list price for the 2017 P1 & P2’s are set at $19.99, merely $5.00 more than the 2017 Tamagotchi Mini’s. If you ask us, the additional functionality is well worth $5.00. These are sure to be a hot collectors item and definitely will be a great gift for the 2018 holiday season.

We are so excited to hear about this and believe this will truly bring back the nostalgia we’ve been envying Bandai for releasing in Japan. It looks like its about to be an AWESOME summer! Take a look at the shells above, which one is your favorite?, let us know in the comments below!

Here are the official shell design names:

Top Row:

 

- Light Green Glitter (P2)

This is great news! :D

 

I imported a Shuku 20 Shunen Tamagotchi P2 from Japan late last year, and I'll pick up a P1 version when these inevitably hit the UK.

 

What language will they be released in? :o

The Happy meter that appears in some of the pictures suggests that these will be in English.

We already know that Bandai seemingly had these at a UK event back in February - I'd say that that's a given, thankfully. :D

I wonder if Bandai was testing the waters with releasing the Mini in English and then decided they liked the reception? They sold well but a lot of customer reviews of the 20th anniversary in my country were really peeved with the reduced features. I hope they haven't exhausted their good faith with western customers with that move. Sometimes I wonder what Bandai is thinking. Anyway, I hope this means all English speaking countries are getting the 20th P2 then, but I won't hold my breath if the lazy job with the recent minis is any indication. I don't expect them to include English exclusive characters for example. Negative of me, I know. I probably sound salty but really if they're releasing more Tamas outside of Japan then this is good news!

Well, the Mini was sold in Japan way before the Shuku 20 Shunen tamagotchi was too. They're just doing the same thing they did in Japan, guess it took longer because the P1 actually has text to translate and new shells to design, unlike the Minis.

They'll probably be released in every country that had a P1, I'd guess. Or maybe just every country that has a Gamestop?

I didn't know that! That changes everything. I'm hyped now, I hope we get these!
