Heads Up! Tamagotchis Are Back (Again)

Yo, '90s kids, where you at?

The ’90s were and are magic. Which is why after 23 years, one of our favorite toys, the Tamagotchi, is back. This time the cute digital pet sports a variety of colors and new features.

Tamagotchi On is the latest version of the toy. It has an eggshell shape and comes in four different variations: Magic Green, Magic Purple, Fairy Pink, and Fairy Blue.

Although the standard three-button control scheme that we all love and hate has been retained, Japanese toy maker Bandai added Wi-Fi capabilities, making play dates possible. Now players can hatch, care, and breed their Tamagotchis. You can play it with your friends all over the globe or go on trips with nearby players.

 You can let your pet wander around town and take it anywhere while interacting with in-game characters. Visit the store and buy more rooms to live in, toys to play with, and a lot of accessories for them to wear. There are also two games to play.

Tamagotchis can be married to one another. It’s like marrying your game partner without the commitment. Plus, you can raise the babies too.

It’s 2019 and we’re still very excited to get our hands on the Tamagotchi On. If you’re a kid or a kid at heart, you’re sure to enjoy this game.

Tamagotchi On is priced at $59.99 and will be released on July 28, 2019.
