Still got it on my phone too. Yeah, that’s a really bizarre move considering how much positive reception Tama Classic got. My hope is that Bandai replaces it with a game containing every 90’s Tamagotchi, or at least P1/P2 and Angel. That would be as awesome as the Tama On. 

For now, people with Android can just download the APK from somewhere. As for iOS users... well... just cross your fingers for a new app if you didn’t get to download it.

It’s not a surprise. With the MTMGCF app (being free to download) and the Tamagotchi Classic being partners, and the Tamagotchi Forever app being way more popular and earning a bigger lot of money, the Classic was lacking. You see, with TamaTown it was still playable years after the last device being able to link the the site was released, but not a huge amount of people were choosing to access the website. And websites cost money to keep them up on the web, keep in mind :P .

Bandai wasn’t making any serious ammoumt of money, so there only choice was to salvage it. Basically the exact situation that we have with the Classic game.

Sadly, I doubt it. Bandai is starting to edge away from the 20th Anniversaries (literally.. Check there Instagram page) and edging towards the On. And, with the On being able to connect to your iPhone and/or iPad, it’s a win win. Profitable, and it goes along with the On. But like the Meets app, I would not be surprised if it was pretty bare without an On being linked.

I'm pretty sure that at least part of this is simply due to the march of technology - there is now hardware that this software can't run on, so it makes no sense for them to continue offering it.

If I'm thinking of the right one, I gave it a shot many years ago, and I disliked it because I found it to be way too needy compared to a real Gen 1 or Gen 2 device. :P

Yes, and that’s exactly what they are doing. It will come out alongside the On.

Please read my recent comment :)

      I notice no one really talking about the Hello Kitty Nano that's rumored to be a NA release. Not much is known but it was leaked and information is coming in slowly but its timed to be released in the fall as well. It has 2 colors and is due this October for release. Hopefully we will see more info during the next bandai news letter or during a announcement on their social media!
      Original source!

      Hey!
      Tamagotchis have been with me through my childhood. Now I am an 18-year-old who occasionally transforms into a total tama-stan. XD
      I've currently got booted up a connection v2! However, since I last used it, I think it may have bugged out slightly... I downloaded my old tama (petitchi, gen 12) to find that the age of my tama was 61??? Not sure how that happened. XD
      My first ever tamagotchi was the connection v4.5 <3, I got it for my eighth birthday and I loved it soo much!!! However, it just so happens to be the only tama I have that no longer works!! 😢 It's really hard to replace that model.
      Anyway! I thought now is a good time to return once again to my hobby, since I'm inside all the time, haha! 
       
      My collection of tamagotchis:
      Tamagotchi P2 (J)
      Connection v2 (E)
      Connection v5.5 (Celebrity Familitchi) (E)
      Connection v6 (Music Star) (E)
      Tamagotchi Friends (E)
      Gudetama Tamagotchi (E)
      ...oh! and a Violetchi lanyard.
      I'm also planning on purchasing some more japanese models! I've been hopping about on ebay, looking for good deals. 😛 As the v4.5 is so hard to come by from what I can tell, I am definitely considering investing in the Ura Jinsei Enjoi, which features my beloved Ura tamas!! 😮
      I'm always open for discussions!! If you have any questions for me, or stories to tell, please don't hesitate to comment!!

      Not sure if this is the exact place for it but I’ve never seen anything about this posted online before. 
       
      I recently learned that the Entama has an animation when your adult tamagotchi leaves you with a new baby. 
       
       it happened shortly after midnight, I only noticed because I checked both Tamas I was running had lights out

      Ever since I discovered the versions with colors I've been wanting one. I've tried to do some research from time to time but I'm still very confused.
      From what I've gathered, the on version is pretty limited in terms of stuff to do, but has a good breeding system. And the meet version is basically the same as on but in Japanese.
      Anyhow, now for the important part - which one should I get? I apologise if I come off as lazy but I'm going crazy trying to understand all these different versions with all the functions etc. So I was hoping that some kind soul over here maybe could help me out a bit.
      what I'm looking for: 
      having as much fun as possible without the need of additional tamas/apps etc
      (imagine going on a trip to the woods without internet and bringing your tamagotchi. You'd want you'd get as much as possible out of it with the somewhat limited opportunities in the woods)
      basically: as much games, customizations, locations to explore without having to connect my tama to another tama or the internet/an app. (Just in case I end up somewhere without internet connection, but don't get me wrong - I'd love for there to be an opportunity to go online as well, like back in the days when tamatown existed and you could "meet" other users, play games etc.)
      I'm leaning towards getting a tamagotchi p's version. from what I've understood, they aren't as limited as tamagotchi on in terms of games and places to explore.
      Since the prices are pretty hefty (I live in sweden where they haven't released any of it so I'll have to buy from overseas), I really want to make sure I'm educated enough before I buy anything. If you'd advice me to keep researching feel free to give me suggestions on where to look (websites, youtube channels etc). Otherwise, I'd be grateful for all tips and advices! I feel very lost at the moment. My latest tamagotchi was v3 and at one point I had the music star version too.
