"We have found that since we brought the Tamagotchi back last year in a new form, fans have been clamoring for the return of the originals that launched in 1997," said Tara Badie, Bandai America Marketing Director. "We have decided to bring back the original Tamagotchi with some new additions that will keep the classic look and feel of the original game, but with new colors that will bring the device to life like never before."
For the fall launch, the original programming will allow consumers to feed the Tamagotchi, clean up after it, take care of it and even discipline it, while you raise the Tamagotchi to adulthood. With each Tamagotchi, players are given one of two different games to play: A character and numbers game. Each player has up to seven different types of adult Tamagotchi they will be able to get.
Tamagotchi devices will be released in two separate generations:
