Bandai Japan Announces Tamagotchi Meets Pastel Version

Recommended Posts

image

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?

I've been considering buying one for the fact that there could be a better performance on it.

The theme makes me happy, it's cute, and reminds me of my early days of Tamagotchi (right around Easter of 2014?) and it reminds me of where I used to live, North Carolina.

Not the best 😛 Unfortunately I had a reset glitch which made me lose everything. Bandai just exchanged mine for a new one, we'll see how this one goes. I have trust issues to get over though :(

Tamagotchi Meets Pastel Version Gets New Release Date

image

Last week we reported that the Tamagotchi Meets Pastel Version was delayed due to production issues, and that Bandai Japan would let us know the new release date soon. Well have no fear, we have been informed that the lovely Pastel Version will be released on Saturday, March 30th 2019. This new date is just 21 days later than the original date of March 9th. It’s also funny that Bandai has announced the new date a day prior to the original release.

image

Certainly exciting to have a new date, and for those who have preordered will be informed by the retailer of the new release date. This is roughy less than a month before Easter, so you might just have your hands on the Pastel Version while you’re celebrating.

Can anybody show me a picture of how they look IRL? I've seen people raving about them (even people who have previously been not interested in purchasing them) about how good they look!

I haven't seen any real-life photos, but HobbyLink Japan has higher-resolution versions of the promotional shots, if that helps;

White

Purple

Given the buggy nature of the initial release of the Meets, this is definitely the way to go! :P

Ahh... So I'm not loosing it... Like that surf game. Gotta get way too much button mashing for any surfing to occur... Even a quick bump of water would be better then Tama getting mad... 

I'm thinking about it. Just hope the games are different and more simple to play. I feel like some of the color games involve too much focus... Waiting still to see more features/etc.

There was a video on YouTube of the new pastel games, looks like a matching game and also a direction pressing game.

      I need help. My tamagotchi keeps saying : I want to play. Does anyone know what this means?

      We're almost a week from Halloween, I'm just post this drawing here since I've put enough effort and finished before Halloween. But enjoy this Mario & Luigi x Tamagotchi crossover for the spooky month of October!
       
      Wonder if you know something familiar in the Mansion?
    • By BoredRabbit
      Hi there! I'm BoredRabbit who has a passion on character design on Twitter and DeviantArt. Now I was introduced to Tamagotchi in the early 2010s by my cousins. I know it's a virtual pet toy, but I did knew there was an anime when I was on the internet watching videos on YouTube. But yes, I'm one of the few who doesn't own a Tamagotchi, but was introduced to the franchise since the early 2010s.
      But I have some Tamagotchi Crossovers if anyone is interested. 
      Let's start with Mario & Luigi: Future Dream Town

      Mario & Luigi: Future DreamTown was another of my Mario & Luigi Box Art Crossovers where I wanted to gimmick the Mario & Luigi box art like where Nintendo and AlphaDream would unexpectedly announce a new Mario & Luigi game but with crossovers with partners. 
      My pitch was to have Nintendo and Bandai Namco collaborate to bring recognition to the Tamagotchi franchise starting the Mario & Luigi RPG series to break down 4 buttons or pull the Partners in Time concept. 
      For Story: The Mario Bros. has face new faces in their world and now they've jumped into the Tamagotchi universe. The twist is that Mario & Luigi went into DreamTown but in the Future. Clulutchi and Miraitchi were flying around and discovers the Mario Bros running around knowing what this place is. Together, the Pocket Designer Twins and the Mario Bros team up to fend off foes of Robots and Bowser's Minions who are plotting to takeover Tamagotchi Planet (plot twist: It's Spacytchi and Bowser Jr. plotting this).
      Oh, but here's Mametchi and Ludwig rivaling with:

      Toad + Tamagotchi Friends: Bowser Jr. was looking for Mario & Luigi until he steps into a portal which leads to TamaTown. He found Spacytchi and his brothers as Spacytchi plots to takeover Tamagotchi Planet. Toad follows Bowser Jr. but he encounters Mametchi and Kutchipatchi, which results the trio to find Bowser Jr.
      It's a side-story staring Toad which hasn't been a playable character in Mario RPGs before. Instead of the typical Bowser's Minions/Bowser Jr's Journey, I wanted this side story to be like Paper Jam but having the ability to change characters and give Toad a main roll with Mametchi and Kutchipatchi.
      With that, this topic is gonna be long so here's another Crossover I wanted to see ever since:

      The description I put together on DeviantArt:
      "Sackboy and friends enters a completely different world filled with a different cast of characters that are said to be called Tamagotchi. It’s up to to the Heroes to enter Tamagotchi Planet to stop Spacytchi’s plans to takeover the entire planet."
      This is another crossover concept when LBP had DLC crossovers like Muppets and Spongebob (oh and I'm not forgetting Marvel and DC Comics.) LBP is a charming game and I get nostalgic on LBP alot when I see Sackboy in my timeline. Heck, DLC costumes maybe interesting when sometimes a DLC level can be packaged with massive content LBP had back then.
      Here's my pitch for this LBP x Tamagotchi DLC concpet:
      11 costumes for Sackboy & Friends (DLC Costume Pack) Sackboy: Mametchi, Spacytchi Sackgirl: Memetchi, Lovelitchi, Himespetchi  Oddsock: Pochtchi  Swoop: Hinatchi Small Toggle: Kutchipaitchi, Pipospetchi, Akaspetchi Big Toggle: Gotchi King The DLC Level Kit pitch:
      TamaTown being the hub world to explore (like MangleWood and Bunkum Lagoon.) The Level kit tells a story of Sackboy and Friends going in the Tamagotchi universe. Levels contains 10 levels regarding the story (+6 challenge levels + 4 racing levels) Can contain costume exclusives in specific levels (Clulutchi, Miraitchi, Kuromametchi, Gozarutchi, Masktchi, etc.) Over 250 stickers and 100 decorations based on the Tamagotchi franchise.) Over 200 materials and 150 objects) Gives Sackboy a brand new Power Up that has the ability to break through walls. I've been knowing LBP in my life and every time I see Sackboy, he gives me flashbacks playing all the LBP series (and yes I have all 3 games + PS Vita), so here's some Tamagotchi + LBP crossovers:


      Now for the last crossover which some of you may or may not be familiar with but...

       
      I'm a COD Zombies geek and yes, I know what the Aether story and placyed the COD just for the Zombies mode, is but it's confusing to know the storyline when there's too much in the multiverse. Anyways we have Mametchi and friends dress up as the Tranzit crew (aka Victis crew). I know Victis are the weakest crew in-terms of Characters, but my thoughts: they're just survivors trying to fight undead freaks when the rockets nuked earth in the Ultimis Timeline.
      Now it's time for the Tamagotchi fathers as Primis Crew:

      So here are the Tamagotchi fathers except Ikaritchi (as he's not Kutchipatchi's father but his beard and stash caught my attention to fit the Primis Nikolai role), I'd thought it'd be funny to see them star a role by cosplaying as Primis.
      And here's the last one which may contain spoilers for those wondering how Treyarch ended Aether as it's been going for 11 years (however, I suggest if you didn't seen the ending of Aether, be warn! But if some don't mind or seen it, okay):

      This was where I wanted to redraw the Tag der Toten scene, where Victis gets banished in the Dark Aether. I put the Tamagotchi characters there just to redraw this and it almost took 6 hours to complete. But holy shoot, this one was sad considering that Primis and Ultimis had to erase themselves in-order to break the cycle, resulting Samantha and Eddie being the only two to go on this one sigular universe with no Zombies, no 115, and no Apothicons. The only thing that makes sad redrawing this is Victis treated like puns. It's a shame that they got banished, which caught my interest redrawing this scene.
      I've wanted to post this and yes I'm joined this site just today. So hopefully I read your replies on your thoughts on these crossovers. I'd been posting positive and wholesome art  just to make people happy as 2020 was getting rough. So stay stay everyone!

      Hey
      I was wondering if anyone knows where I could buy a DVD copy of Tamagotchi: The Movie online in Canada. The only place I can find it is on the Australian version of eBay.
      Thanks

      Back in the 1990s, I collected LCD game-watches and character-themed digital watches, and I always dreamed of buying a watch-format Tamagotchi to go with them. Though other competing brands offered watch virtual pets, Bandai did not - they only licensed out the Tamagotchi livery for use on themed versions of standard analogue and digital watches. So, 23 years later, I've decided to make my own;

      Presenting the "Tamawatchi"!
      Though the name "Tamawatchi" was officially used for a line of Tamagotchi-themed non-virtual pet watches in, I believe, the Connection era, back in 1997 I always imagined it as the name that they would use for a watch version of the iconic virtual pet.
      Since this was based on an imagined product from my childhood, I specifically wanted a very 1990s look for this project, so that it would fit in with the watches that I have from that era. So, I purchased the newly-released bright-green Neon Tamagotchi Original Gen 1 and a dark-green fabric watch-strap on Amazon UK, since the two combined gave me exactly the look that I wanted.

      As with my "Tamagotchi Pinny" custom project, I attached brooch-bars to the back of the device using Gorilla Super Glue. Since I've got past experience now, the back of this one looks a lot tidier - not that it matters too much, since it won't be seen when it's in use. I used three brooch-bars so as to evenly distribute the weight of the device when it's attached to its strap (two are on the battery-door, and one is at the top of the device itself), although unlike the Tamagotchi Pinny, the Tamawatchi is a bit too heavy to wear as a pin. Also, unfortunately, for this project, I had to remove the iconic ball-chain, because on a watch it would just get in the way!
      There are better ways of making a Tamagotchi into a watch, but since I handle my things carefully, this quick-and-easy method will hold up just fine for my use-case.

      Here's the Tamawatchi with a 1990s Tamagotchi Fantasy Dome bubble-watch. The Tamawatchi doesn't look especially out-of-place, which I'm happy about.
      If Bandai ever makes an official watch-format Tamagotchi, I'll be right there pre-ordering one at the earliest opportunity, but for now, at least I finally have some semblance of the "Tamawatchi" that I always wanted to own.
