Bandai Namco has released My Tamagotchi Forever after a lengthy soft launch. The newest addition to the now more than 20 year old Tamagotchi brand gives users a chance to raise their character, play with them, and explore Tamatown. Parts of the experience will feel familiar to those who have played Outfit7’s My Talking Tom, but there are also new features here that Tamagotchi fans and newcomers can appreciate.
Mobile users looking for the classic Tamagotchi experience will not find it here. My Tamagotchi Forever is a new take on the series, adding AR, a town, more ways to interact, collectibles, and social elements. Those looking for the old school Tamagotchi feel should take a look at Tamagotchi Classic.
My Tamagotchi Forever is free and contains ads and in app purchases. Here is an excerpt from the game’s description and a trailer with more information:
