Everyone who grew up in the 90s either enjoyed or suffered the Tamagotchi fever. Launched in 2017, the Tamagothi was a small electronic device that allowed players to take care of their own digital pet. That including duties like feeding, cleaning, playing…and sadly, mourning, as the game did not shy in punishing players for their inaction by killing their creatures.
Now, Bandai Namco celebrates the 20th anniversary of their generational icon by introducing it to a brand new audience with a game that will be available on iOS and Android devices. My Tamagotchi Forever uses the same basic premise of the original creation, simply adding a brand new visual design and a more complex gameplay, with players now being able to take their Tamagotchi out to the town and visit other friends. There will also be new minigames in addition to the classic actions, which makes this a perfect modern reinvention of the brand.
Here is the official description of the game: “Raise your very own Tamagotchi characters, and share your adventures with your friends! Your Tamagotchi character needs your daily care to stay healthy and happy. Keep it well fed, washed, and entertained, then meet other Tamagotchi friends in town for more fun. But don’t forget to put your character to bed!”
My Tamagotchi Forever will be avalable to download for free on iOS and Android early 2018. Watch the trailer below.
