Japanese toy and video games maker Bandai has announced that Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. will soon be available to download from GooglePlay and the Apple Store.

The first Tamagotchi, a small plastic toy on a keychain with a screen displaying rudimentary graphics, was released in Japan in 1996.

The game went on to sell more than 78 million units worldwide.

I've tried a couple of times to find a tamagotchi app for Android, but none of them seem to capture the imagination in the same way that the original devices did for me.

I especially like the idea of "retro mode." Expanding the original devices functions by way of mini games is fine, but if I can get the simplicity of the original devices without the mini games then I'll be a happy chappy.

I never once owned an official Tamagotchi. When i was younger i had no money so had to make do with the knock off ones. Usually better as they have more options, but break easier.
First one i had was a nano puppy, it fell down the back of a radiator in the house and i couldn't be bothered to get it so it died. Probably why i wasn't allowed a really puppy. :laugh:

Well, I think this upcoming "Hatch" iphone app is going to beat all of these other tamagotchi apps.

I bought a legit Bandai Tamagotchi first gen off ebay w/ box and instructions few months back for 25$. I still haven't opened it yet. Brought back memories, just haven't had the time to dump my time into it like I did the ones I had as a kid.

It's not that they're not good. It's just you getting older.
Too old for these kind of things now.

Im surprised there wasnt one already? After all this time I had assumed there would be, would have funded the development of this if that was the case. Kids are suckers for these, maybe throw in some pet battles with your mates, profit $$
