Ladies and gentlemen, its the moment we’ve been waiting for! Bandai America has done an excellent job drowning us in every single series of the 2017 Tamagotchi Mini, but this time, it appears we’re getting the real deal.
A GameStop employee was snooping around the inventory system and discovered some new Tamagotchi products, specifically the 2017 P1 & P2 which were just released in Japan on November 23rd 2017 to wrap-up the 20th anniversary festivities.



A Tamagotchi fan on Imgur has posted images of the GameStop inventory showing off the new P1 & P2’s which are scheduled to hit shelves on August 15th 2018! Although this seems pretty far out, its uncertain whether there will be pre-orders. There are a whole bunch of shell designs that have been leaked on a popular toy website, Toy Panic. Theres a mix of original shells you’ve seen in the late 90’s in the United States along with some new designs too.
It appears that Bandai will be branding these as “Tamagotchi Original”, which they believe will differentiate them from the 2017 Mini. The list price for the 2017 P1 & P2’s are set at $19.99, merely $5.00 more than the 2017 Tamagotchi Mini’s. If you ask us, the additional functionality is well worth $5.00. These are sure to be a hot collectors item and definitely will be a great gift for the 2018 holiday season.
We are so excited to hear about this and believe this will truly bring back the nostalgia we’ve been envying Bandai for releasing in Japan. It looks like its about to be an AWESOME summer! Take a look at the shells above, which one is your favorite?, let us know in the comments below!

GameStop Lists Tamagotchi P1 Replica Pre-Orders

GameStop.com, a popular video game, and consumer electronic retailer has just recently posted the P1 replicas on their website Irish website that are going to be hitting shelves this fall. Now these devices are replicas of the original P1’s released in America back in 1997, and 1998 respectively. If you recall correctly the P1 and P2 replicas were released in Japan last year in November to wrap up the 20th anniversary celebration in Japan. However, Tamagotchi was released in America in May of 1997, so we’re still celebrating!

The Tamagotchi P1 & P2’s differentiate themselves from the previously released Mini’s thanks to additional features, such as more characters, games, and of course a much welcome menu! These are replicas of your favorite original Tamagotchi back in 1997 and 1998 here in the United States. They’re much more interactive than the Mini’s, and they’re bound to a hot seller this holiday season worldwide.
You may recall that a screenshot of GameStop’s inventory indicated that they would be receiving P1 & P2 replicas, in exclusive shell designs this August. Apparently, they will be arriving in GameStop’s inventory around August 15th, but they won’t be sold until approximately October 10th. This timeline actually makes a good deal of sense since the anniversary of Tamagotchi is November 23rd. Bandai is bringing the P1 and P2 replicas outside of Japan with some original shell designs from the 90’s along with some fun new ones. There are MINOR differences between these and the originals, such as the feel of the three buttons, and of course these models take the more modern CR2032 batteries you’ve come to know and love from the Tamagotchi Connection line.

Here’s what the GameStop leak/pre-order has revealed:
  1. The P1 and P2 replicas will be available in October.
  2. They should be available internationally, these were leaked on the GameStop website in Ireland.
  3. They will sell for approximately €24.99, the screenshot leaked in America indicates that they will sell for approximately $20.00.
  4. The packaging and seen approve slightly mimics the original packaging from the 90’s.
  5. The designs above are confirmed as P1′s.
If you’re in Ireland, then feel free to place an order for one of these replicas, note that this is considered to be a pre-order. These won’t ship until October, so you’ll be waiting a good deal of time. We will keep you updated as we hear more information from our sources. One thing is for sure, these will be a HOT seller this holiday season so be sure to get your hands on them as they arrive on shelves.
We couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming P1 & P2 replicas! We want to hear what you think in the comments below!
