Ok, let’s gather all information there is about this version so far.
First of all - new options. There will be potty training, teeth brushing training and cleaning training - so now the adult Tamagotchis will act like adults and not poop on the floor if we raise them properly.
Life points - the system that was used in the v4. From the look of the photo I am guessing there will be fashion, art, engineering, cooking and sports. Quite a cool idea! And we will also get school and jobs + a new option - daycare! So we won’t have to worry about out little babies cause they will be taken care of by a babysitter (which look super cute btw).
Next, there will be a new growth stage after the adulthood - so, for example, if you take good care of Kuchipatchi, he will be thin and handsome, but if you take bad care of him he will become a fatty. ;D
We get 10 built-in characters at the start, more will be available via downloads. There will also be a few “collaboration” characters (based on non-Tamagotchi franchises), like we had the Aikatsu or mushroom characters for the P’s.
The Tamagotchi will no longer use the iR, but the new function, already used in Tamagotchi Friends, called NFC. So to send the downloadable stuff to the Tama you will need a tablet or a smartphone with NFC. Yay new technologies! The downloadable content will be available in special points located all around Japan, something like the Store Dekas. But for people that will not be able to get them there, they will also be released to download from the web.
The Tamagotchi will be available in 4 colors: pink, purple, white, and blue. It will also have the function that the TamaGO had, meaning the changable faceplates, which will be really cool, cause it will allow us to personalize it.
At the start we will get a bonus gift - a special touch-card with an additional character on it which we will be able to send to the Tama via the NFC. Interesting idea! I personally like this more than the pierces which are rather inconvenient in use plus they were making the P’s look even more girly, ugh. ;P
The price of the Tamagotchi will be around $60+ which is a minus here, but I still don’t complain, cause there are other vpets that are even more expensive and people still buy them. The price is surely affected by the NFC option.
The release date will be September 27, 2014.
