The Americans are already doing pre-orders.
The company Bandai announced its intention to reissue the toy tamagochi in the US, according to the Daily Mail. The legendary gadget that appeared in Japan in 1996, and in America a year later, allowed users to take care of a virtual pet in real time.
“The Tamagotchi had such an amazing worldwide response from fans who put our door in order to return the toy to the US that we still returned it,” said in an interview with Daily Mail, Limp Grampp, vice president of brand management in Bandai America.
Now Bandai is releasing a mini version of the cult gadget of the 90s. In each device there will be six kinds of pets. The company asks for a toy for about $ 15. The opportunity to make a reservation appeared on Amazon yesterday.
