Tamagotchi is finally coming to your phone: Bandai to launch hit game as a free AR app for first time
Just weeks after reviving the beloved 90s toy for a limited re-release, Bandai has revealed Tamagotchi is now coming to smartphones in what appears to be an augmented reality app.
The app, called My Tamagotchi Forever, will be free for iOS and Android, allowing players to raise their characters and even mingle with others in ‘Tamatown.’
While it will mimic many aspects of the original game, from feeding the virtual pet to cleaning up after it, the new Tamagotchi app will also include a number of mini-games and special items that can be unlocked.
