Tamagotchis Are Making A Comeback


Remember when your first Tamagotchi died and you had to pull out the propeller pencil and press that reset button.

For a lot of people, it was the first time experiencing the grieving process, and what was worse, it was all your fault.

Well now you can experience the digital responsibility of a pet all over again as Japanese company Bandai have re-released the toy, Konbini reports.

It is over 20 years since the Tamagotchi was released in 1996, and was a huge success, selling 40 million of the egg-shaped toy in the US and Europe.

Of course it is not identical to our nostalgic classic, the LCD display is smaller and a square instead of a rectangle, and the helpful icons at the top and bottom of the screen seem to have disappeared.


Do not fear though, the pixelated characters have remained the same…


The only thing is that the hand-held toy has halved in size. It was already tiny!


So if you didn’t get to join in the trend when you were a kid because your parents wouldn’t buy you one, so you had no friends and hated your life (just me?)…then you can purchase yourself one now for about £14.

Or just get an actual pet?
