Tamagotchi and The Pokémon Company are teaming up for the first official Pokémon Tamagotchi, which will allow owners to take care of their very own Eevee.
Plus, each Eevee has the potential to evolve into one of the pokémon’s eight adorable creatures: Espeon, Umbreon, Sylveon, Vaporeon, Flareon, Jolteon, Leafeon, and Glaceon.
Odds are these will be pretty popular, so you might want to reserve one now - especially since you won't actually pay for it until the ship date.
If you can keep your new Tamagotchi alive and healthy, we'll see about getting a dog.
The Pocket Pikachu, which was inspired by Tamagotchi’s incredible success, was released in 1998.
It allowed fans to carry around a tiny Pikachu in their pocket.
Although this is the first official Tamagotchi and Pokémon collaboration, it isn’t the first time that The Pokémon Company has explored a physical digital pet for players.Tamagotchi have evolved over the years, but Tamagotchi On is the culmination of everything that came before and then some.In addition to the standard caretaking functions that are at the core of the Tamagotchi experience, Tamagotchi On also features one on one connectivity between devices and with a smartphone app where users can go on playdates, give gifts, travel together, play games, and even get married.Namco Bandai has released a new Android Tamagotchi app called Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. Doing it this way provokes ample frustration, however, as soon as you realize that you’re using a space-aged device with full touch capabilities and a gorgeous display.The acronym standards for “love is fun everywhere,” which is arguable depending on which stage of love you’re in, and which probably accounts for its February 14 release date. But Namco Bandai knows this, so they’ve provided a zoomed in mode that brings you up close and personal with your Tamagotchi, rendered in two colors instead of one, with touch interaction and the ability to tap on icons directly to feed it, bathe it, medicate it or scold it.
If you're ready for the commitment, Tamagotchi On can be pre-ordered on Amazon in four different colors for $59.99 with shipping slated for August 15th.
