You may recall Bandai’s previous series of Nintendo DS games, Tamagotchi Corner Shop; well there have been several games since and the newest one is coming out this November.
The game is titled “Tamagotchi No Puchi Puchi Omisetchi - Collect Popular Shops” and is scheduled to launch in Japan on November 16, 2017. This game should have a very similar concept to the Corner Shop series. You will run shops, some of which that were featured in the Corner Shop series, such shops include hair dressers shop, and more! As your shop grows and handles more customers you will grow your shop and it will enlarge as it does on the Corner Shop series. New shops include a fireworks shop, ice cream parlor, space travel shop, and many more!
There are over 200 characters featured, even some new faces from the M!X lineup. Another cool feature is that the town will have a daytime and nighttime mode based on your Nintendo DS’s system time.
This game will integrate with the new Tamagotchi M!X, through the exchange of passwords you’ll be able to download exclusive items!
More information is developing and we will definitely keep you updated. Several Japanese retailers are holding pre-orders, and we suggest you place yours soon. A 17cm long Tamagotchi bag will be distributed to customers who pre-order a copy of the game at retailers while supplies last.
So! I’m one of the artists taking part in the awesome @gfwayfaringstrangerszine project! And I really wanted to show a preview for my piece, but….well, I couldn’t really do a zoom in on details because there’s only really one area of details? And I didn’t want to spoil that…so I figured I’d show some of the MANY concept sketches I did! Mainly involving me messing with Ford’s clothing design because…essentially the entire premise of my piece is Ford wearing a poncho, not even kidding xD But he looks damn good in one, so I think I’m justified.
Some of the notes around some of the doodle are actually my notes for when I was planning the piece! There’s actually quite a few nice ideas in there that I didn’t actually include in the end…on one you can see a concept thumbnail in the corner? That was another idea where rather than being in the open desert environment that I went with in the end, he was in a busy desert city - an idea I TOTALLY would have gone with if I’d had more time. Because I reaaaally liked the idea of hiding random codes in posters and stuff. But alas! It was not to be. That said, there is some code in my finished piece.
Yahoo! must’ve been planning a product empire, because there are designs for watches, bags, and wearable utility-chic stuff throughout Karim Rashid’s 2001 Book, ‘I Want to Change the World’. I’ll be scanning in more pages, including an interview with David Byrne on blobjects 😂
