Tamagotchi is Back for the Smartphone Era

Tamagotchi lives again.

I am so excited.

Like, sooooooo excited.

You may be wondering, “What in the world is Tamagotchi?”

Here’s a hint:

Is it coming back now? Remember those colorful pocket-sized digital pets that you hatch onscreen? Those super-needy, occasionally hyperactive, “babies” that beep incessantly until you feed them, play with them, or put them to bed?

Tamagotchi was the rage back in the late 90′s, selling over 78 million units. Now it wants to take on Gen Z.

As an app, of course.

The upcoming app, called Tamagotchi L.i.f.e., will be based on the same concept. There will be a “Retro Mode” that gives users the same look and features as the original, in addition to mini games and other advanced options.

The release date is still foggy, but the app will be available for download from both the Apple Store and Google Play.

I can’t wait.
