The new device will be 20% smaller than the original Tamagotchi, and customers will be able to choose from six colorways and digital pets. Your new digi-creature will need to be groomed, fed and cleaned just like the old ones or else they’ll transition into the virtual afterlife (they’ll die). Each pet will be $14.99 and they are available for pre-order at select online retailers. The official launch will be November 5 at stores nationwide including the official website for Tamagotchi.
If you have nothing better to do, and need something to nurture and care for, save your coins!
