Am I the only one who thinks these are the ugliest Tamagotchis they've ever seen?

They look slapped together.

Now on Tumblr!

I don't mind them. They remind me of the Tamagotchi 4U covers. I quite like the leopard print shell, and I'm deciding between the black with dots and the black with zig zags. I've messaged the seller about the colours of the actual shells because that much is unclear from the images.

Perhaps there will be an official announcement later. I doubt that they'd just put out a new batch of shells without something else bigger planned to warrant a new release.

Completely agree. I'd like to get one, but I'm having a hard time deciding which is the least repelling design. Hopefully there will be an easy way to change the faceplate.

I do wonder if the sound and screen have been improved - that would be just wonderful.

Here's an image from Bandai America's site:

Judging from this, the black polka dotted one is reddish pink.
Personally, I really want the blue and white flowery one.

I am so excited! I wonder if this means more figures and playsets coming soon.
I wonder what the destinations do and what the new games are! I doubt they are connection games because on the other Tamagotchi Friends, the number of games they said didn't include connection games.

All the figures and play sets were released and on clearance at my ToysRUs.
Why would they release another Tamagotchi if the sells aren't going well with this one? Not that I'm complaining, I just don't know how to take this release, yet.

They are all on the Tamagotchi Friends website all the new Tamagotchi Friends, They look pretty cool if they weren't so obnoxious in color.
The Box also has a slant to it, it's not just a squared box.
Thanks Sam on Tamacraze for my Avatar!

The sales may not be going as poorly as you think. Just because something is on clearance doesn't mean the whole franchise sold badly all over the country.

This version has skills just like the Tamagotchi P's. The skill changes depending on the classes you take at Dream School (which you do by playing games) and influences what character you get! The park is gone but it is replaced by the TV station and circus. I think the 5 new characters might be the ones from the park on the previous version (Nandetchi, Amiamitchi, etc).


Last but not least, it says there is a "Tag Read" feature coming soon. Similar to 4U touch spots maybe...?

The new Tamagotchi Friends device is just about to be released and we’ve got all the info straight from Bandai America!

Tamagotchi Friends Dream Town Digital Friend is the name of the new toy. It is centered around Dream Town. So your Tamagotchi can visit venues such as the Music Cafe, TamaMori Shop, Dream School, YUMEX-TV and the Tama Star Circus!

There are actually 11 games total. There are 4 games considered ‘mini games’ – Tennis, Balloon, Flower Count and Cake Catch. Two of these can be played from the beginning and the other two you have to ‘earn’ them. The other 7 games are part of the Dream School – so one for each class: Performer, Beautician, Musician, Robot, Sewing, Chef and Pet Stylist.

The Tamagotchi Friends Dream Town Digital Friend also features 5 new characters! They are Butterflytchi, Doyatchi, Hanafuwatchi, Amakutchi, Karakutchi.

There are also 6 new stylish shells for the new device! The MSRP for the new device is &#036;19.99 and will be available at various retailers very soon!

We will be posting more information on our blog this week.

The leopard and the zigzags are probably the least unappealing to me.

The thing is, they'd all be nice without that weird Tamagotchi Friends heart logo. Whyyyyyy would you put those there? The only reason the P's had them was for deco pierces.

Now on Tumblr!

Bandai put the instruction booklet on their website:

It looks like they might have finally gotten rid of the annoying bump hearts that limit connections to only 5 times a day! And it just overall looks 10x better than any tamagotchi released here in the past few years. Tons of new locations and other stuff

Just purchased those two designs. Hopefully they'll arrive in a week or two. Can't wait to start these up and see if we can (finally) get all of the Jewellery pieces!

I was thinking the exact same thing. I also noticed all of the Tamagotchi toys were on clearance at my Toys 'R' Us. In fact, I was able to pick up the Music Cafe playset for just &#036;5. I assumed that meant Tamagotchi Friends had not been a success, but if a new version is being released, I guess that's not the case. That makes me happy.

This photo of the connection screen shows that the Tamagotchi Friends 2.0 (wave 3) is actually considered the Version 9 (V9), with the "Others" option referring to the Tamagotchi Friends (waves 1 and 2) or Version 8 (V8), as only Tamagotchi Friends can connect with other Tamagotchi Friends.

...

Updated the original post with new images and more information from the official Tamagotchi Friends website.

I'm pretty sure this is gonna be the best English release EVER! :D

I bought the blue flowery one! It is estimated to arrive in the last week of August.

Also, Kuchipatchi and Spacytchi (along with Pipospetchi and Akaspetchi) will be released as figures, as well as some previous figure characters with new poses and face expressions. Cool to see they're making more boy figures.
