New version of the Tamagotchi launched on 20th anniversary

New version of the Tamagotchi launched on 20th anniversary

Tamagotchi - the virtual pocket pets that were all the rage in the 1990s - is making a return with toymaker Bandai America announcing its release of a smaller version of the device on Tuesday (Oct 10).

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Tamagotchi, Bandai America is releasing the device in the United States in limited quantities on November 5.

Awakening and evoking nostalgic feelings from the mid-to-late '90s, this smaller Tamagotchi device features the familiar egg shape, pixelated LCD charm, and, of course, the recurrent need for tender-loving-care that endeared fans in 1997 when it was first released!

Bandai is hoping to appeal to the now-adults who played with these devices as children, and so it will release the new special mini models in packaging that has the original device's design. The new version will be available online and in select toy stores, and comes with a recommended retail price of £9.99.

Israel played key role in Russian cyber-espionage scandal
The NSA, the White House, and the Israeli Embassy declined to comment, while the Russian Embassy did not respond. This resulted in an NSA investigation which found that these tools had reached the Kremlin.

And now to mark the 20th anniversary of the Tamagotchi, it's back. Since its initial debut, the company has sold more than 82 million units worldwide.

The Entertainer, Smyths, and Toys 'R Us will all have them in stock, should you be looking for a new/old way to interrupt important business meetings and generally not pay attention to people that are trying to talk to you.

"The enduring power of Tamagotchi is its clear expression that nurturing and love never goes out of style".

The new Tamagotchis will be sold for $14.99 and can be pre-ordered now!
