Upcoming GigaPetsAR line-up seemingly changed

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

As you guys might be aware, when the GigaPetsAR line launched in late 2018, as mentioned back in this thread by @Eggiweg, several animals aside from the in-production trio of puppy, T-Rex, and unicorn, were shown on the site, implying that they would be future releases - these apparently-upcoming animals included a monkey, a lion, and, of the most interest to me because it's one of my collecting-focusses, a penguin.

I've been checking the official website periodically since then, and recently found that it's gotten a bit of a refresh - and the other animals that were previously shown on the site are now gone.

There is now an FAQ page, and I couldn't help but notice this question on it;

Quote

What are the next pets that will be released and when?

-The next pets will be The Pixie, Star Cat, and Baby Bigfoot. We are working on the Pixie now so that should be in a few months and then the others after that.

The Pixie, Star Cat, and Baby Bigfoot were not mentioned or shown on the original version of the site, which makes me suspect that the list of upcoming GigaPetsAR releases may be quite different from the line-up of animals that the site originally showed!

Whilst these fantastical creatures sound plenty interesting, hopefully the more normal animals that were shown before will still be released at some point - I was really looking forward to the first dedicated penguin virtual pet in years! :lol:

The Pixie, Star Cat, and Baby Bigfoot were winners of a design your own GigaPet competition held a year ago.

Aha! Thanks for that. :D

I wasn't even aware of the competition, I must admit! :lol:

If we're still getting the others at some point, then I'll keep checking the site every now and then.

      So I have a tamagotchi Friends, and my sister and her BFF have ones too. They are all pretty much the same, BUT, mine has different games. Theirs have flower count, cake catch, drop catch, select get and mimick but mine has driving, dancing, find ice cream, flower count and another game I have not unlocked. Is there an explanation for this? If anyone could help I would be a happy cat! Thanks,
      Lucky cat

      Like the title says. Are they? 'Cause I'd like to know because I might get one in the future. 0:

      I heard some stuff about the new giga pets and I have some questions:
      What difference does it make to the original Giga pet? Can you post a pic of it? how bad is it? -Tamacass
