LINE, a popular calling and messaging service available across several platforms have just announced a new feature, and Bandai is delivering some Tamagotchi goodness as one of their launch partners!

LINE Quick Games is the new feature that allows users of the popular messaging service to enjoy games right from within the LINE app. These games within the LINE app are developed using HTML 5. There will be basic games, but in addition to puzzle games and shooting games, LINE plans to offer games utilizing LINE’s chat function.


Bandai has partnered with LINE to launch a Tamagotchi game! This new Tamagotchi game will be quite simple, and definitely sets itself apart from the My Tamagotchi Forever app released earlier this year. Within the app you can raise, feed, and play games with your Tamagotchi. You will be able to marry your friends Tamagotchi’s and mate!

LINE plans on launching this new feature in the summer of 2018, with 8 initial games, including this Tamagotchi game. This new feature will be available later this summer as an application update.

LINE apparently hasn't found much traction outside of Japan, yet. I wonder if this will see localised releases in other countries?

LINE as well as LINE games are decently popular outside of Japan (and Korea), actually. LINE Cookie Run was very popular, though it was recently closed down just because they made a new and improved version that was standalone rather than linked to either LINE or KakaoTalk (Korean version was on Kakao and a lot of people played on it because it had new Cookies ahead of time). There was also a fairly popular game featuring Disney Tsum Tsum.

Hence why I said "much traction", rather than "any traction", of course. ;)

 

I've rarely heard mentions of LINE come from outside of Japan and Korea, and even then it's usually from the enthusiast-press.

 

Still, it'll be interesting to see where Bandai and LINE go with this Tamagotchi title. I must say that I didn't expect it, considering that My Tamagotchi Forever is still pretty recent!

Is this app Japan exclusive? Everything looks like it’s in Japanese and line is based mostly in Japan!

It probably is. Line has a lot of english games but still there's a vast majority of games in their original languages that never get translated.

Eh, nothing stops you from playing them in Japanese, a lot of times it's not necessary to know the language to enjoy the game.

The app is now available for anyone with LINE Quick Game - you don't need a Japanese phone to use Quick Game, but all the games are in Japanese. I havent been able to use the app much just yet - my Tamagotchi is sleeping so I think it runs according to the Japanese timezone, but from what I can tell it's just a standard Tamagotchi, perhaps with a few additional features.

Can someone help me figure out how to get the game going? I downloaded the Line app and don't see it in the list of games. What do I do next?

Wanna create a Line group? Apparently you can marry your tamagotchi like in M!X and trading items sounds cool too. Also, is it already to play? I have the app but I don't seem to find it anywhere

Ok, I got it. First go to this link: https://twitter.com/line_qg/status/1041914714618568705?s=20

It's the twitter account of Line Quick Game and that's the tweet about the Tamagotchi vers. You must open the link featured in that post with your Line app. If you're not a Line Quick user, it will ask you to register (it will doit automatically once you allow it). Then the Line Quick Game account will be added to your list. And you can access the games with that chat! Once you're searching the games, look for the pinky icon with magenta/pink letters. That's the Tama!

Sorry for errors, english is my second language.

And I'm in!!! Thank you for the help. I just could not figure it out on my own. LOL. A group sounds like fun! What do we need to do? We can add friends?

I don't really know yet how to add ppl... As soon as I figure out how to do it I'll post it here! I guess we need to add the line users and the game itself will reconize wich of our contacts haves the game. But before asking for Line IDs I'll search somewhere if this is true.

Anyway, I'm happy I could help!!

As far as I'm playing the game is good, but saddly, the time is according to the japanese timezone. Wich sucks for me because I have exact 12 hours of difference. I guess I'll leave my tama at something that seems to be a hotel so it's not completely alone while I'm sleeping.

We have a little farm in our garden and you can also visit random Tamas (playing with them, feed them, etc.).

My fav feature so far is that you can grab your Tama and if you throw it too high it will get angry xD

      Hello everyone,
      I just unpacked my new Tamagotchi V4. And I'm experiencing some technical difficulties.
      The Situation:
      I've put the time after my radio clock, right in time. Time passed normally.  I've noticed that when my Tamagotchi goes to bed, the time went faster. The next morning there was a difference from 46 seconds. During the day the time passed normally, until he goes to bed. Then the same problem happens again. For a day it is no big deal, but when it all sums up, it's quite annoying.
      I hope that somebody can help me.
      kind regards,
      98mametchi98

      So I recently bought a used entama and because I don't read Japanese I'm still figuring it out but anyway I have only had it a couple of weeks and it has  kept saying that the battery has run out. But when I press the reset button it's fine! Until a couple of hours later it dose the same thing?!? Is it just my tama? Is that common for old used and beaten up tamas? Thank you for taking the time to read xxx

      Is there a health meter on the Gudetama tamagotchi? I was looking for it. I can’t really see how my Gudetama is feeling like the other tamagotchi’s.
      it would be great to find out.
      thanks!
       
      I just bought the Gudetama just today so I’m new to this. ( So use to the original tamagotchi omg )

      Hi there! 
      So I received my Eevee Tamagotchi two days ago and so far I'm pretty happy with it. It's pretty easy to satisfy and not needy at all. But there are two things I can't seem to figure out:
      1. Sometimes Eevee beeps at me for no reason at all. Even if it is completely happy. There's no way to dicipline Eevee for beeping without any reason, so I wonder: Why does Eevee do that? Am I missing something?
      2. Has anyone figured out yet how to evolve Eevee into an Espeon/Umbreon? 
      Thanks in advance! :)

      This comes as absolutely no surprise as we have seen the leaked images MONTHS ago, even before the Tamagotchi Meets was announced. Today, Bandai formally announced the Tamagotchi Meets Pastel version. This new version will be added to the Tamagotchi Meets lineup and feature some new locations, characters, and more!
      The Pastel version comes in two different designs, one in white, and the other in purple. Both feature unique floral faceplates to match their shells and differentiate themselves from the original Tamagotchi Meets version.
      Wha else is new on this version? New locations! Pastel version will include two new locations, Easter Land and Flower Garden. These locations are so beautiful and will feature some new characters along with some familiar faces! Easter Land is all about the upcoming Easter holiday, everything seems to be egg shaped, pastel colored, and bunny themed. Flower Garden looks like a beautiful spring garden, everything is in bloom and very colorful, there are several gardens laid out amongst the gorgeous landscape - breathtaking!

      So what about those characters? Well in Easter Land you’re going to meet four new faces pictured above all the characters are Easter themed and so adorable. Flower Garden we have two returning characters, and one familiar face! Butterflytchi, and Yotsubatchi can be found in Flower Garden, and a new variant of Furawatchi decorated in flowers, and a pink cape!
      No word on pricing yet, but it should be along the same price as the Tamagotchi Meets. The Pastel version will be available on shelves in Japan on March 9th, this is just in time for Easter and right before the official start of spring! We are so excited about this version, are you planning on getting one?
