Tamagotchi Turns 20 with Upgraded AR App
With more than 20 years of history under its belt, Tamagotchi is a nostalgia bomb in a tiny shell. Whether you were an A+ Tamagotchi parent or still dealing with the guilt of forgetting yours for the last couple of decades, the toy has a place in our memories. Bandai Namco is here to remind us of that very fact in the announcement trailer for their upcoming app, My Tamagotchi Forever.
The new app, which has already soft launched in Canada, combines the concept of Tamagotchi pets with the more popular bits of Pokémon GO, the new Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and casual games like Candy Crush. AR technology lets you take photos with your pet, and the various critters live in a village called Tamatown.
My Tamagotchi Forever will be available for iOS and Android starting sometime next year.
