MADRID, April 22 (2021) –
Bandai has recovered the mythical Tamagotchi with new functionalities, integrating a camera for the first time, so that children can photograph themselves, but also cook and explore the world with their virtual pet, and find new friends to play with and share gifts.
Almost 25 years after its first market launch and with more than 82 million units sold worldwide, the Japanese company today presented this new device.
Tamagotchi Pix keeps the egg shape with which the first Tamagotchi was unveiled in the 90s and three buttons, now tactile, with which to feed and care for the virtual pet in a color display.
Now, the company has improved the game options to enhance interaction and functionalities, adapted to the new demands of children.
The new device introduces the possibility of paint, cook together with this virtual companion or move around the real world to discover and meet new Tamagotchi friends. This is possible thanks to the incorporation of a camera for the first time, with which users will be able to take photos and save them as a souvenir of your adventures on your own integrated social channel.
The how Tamagotchi is educated is still important, as it will affect the game in a whole new way with personal room settings or determining the future profession of the pet when it returns to your planet.
Tamagotchi Pix does not need internet connection, and allows you to connect with a friend’s Tamagotchi using a QR code, to play together and send gifts. Starting in August, it will also allow you to go online to expand the experience with new missions, items and gifts.
The new Tamagotchi can be configured in multiple languages, including Spanish, and is now available for pre-sale. in two colors: pink and purple, for 59.99 euros. It will hit toy stores and department stores at the end of May.
