Bandai Japan has just recently filed for a trademark of the name “Tamagotchi M!X” (also known as Tamagotchi Mix) and it set the Tamagotchi community off into a frenzy. It’ll be almost one year since the Tamagotchi 4U+ was released, and that certainly means another Tamagotchi is on its way. A picture of the new Tamagotchi M!X has been spotted in a Japanese magazine with a little glimpse of whats to come as Bandai celebrates the 20th anniversary of Tamagotchi.

As you can see from the image above there is an all new design. It appears that the cracked egg shell appearance has made its way back onto the front for the first time since the connection releases. We’re pretty sure there will be a few different designs and colors to come when the device is fully launched this Summer.

There is no official information on why this Tamagotchi is being named Tamagotchi M!X, however it is notable that this Tamagotchi does feature the older IR technology to connect with previous generation devices. It is not yet known if it always has NFC technology like the Tamagotchi 4U/4U+ series. If it has both IR and NFC that would definitely explain the M!X name.

The advertisement introduces a completely new character, Nijifuwatchi (who has an angelic appearance), and of course a few familiar faces. It appears that this device will a new location that has been added to Tamagotchi Channel, Rainbow Hills. This seems to be the theme of this new Tamagotchi such as the Dream Town theme of the Tamagotchi P’s. Some notable destinations in Rainbow Hills include a cloud store, a big castle, and a family home.

The most remarkable feature of this new Tamagotchi is when you marry two Tamagotchi’s, which will result in a special transformation. There is huge emphasis on marriage in this version, would this be similar to the families on the V5 Familitchi? It is unknown right now how the marriage feature differs from previous versions of Tamagotchi, but we can’t wait to find out! More information will be available next month (June) on this new Tamagotchi, such as more information on upcoming features, and of course a launch date. It is assumed that this version will most likely only be available in Japan. Stay tuned!

This looks beautiful! And the prospect of IR returning is wonderful indeed. I'll definitely keep my eyes peeled for it when I move over to Japan at the end of July! :D

Wow, that is neat. I wouldn't have expected it. And it looks like IR has finally returned from its three and a half year hiatus!

I think it releases July 16, right? Two days short of a year after the 4U+. I'm sure I'll get it as quickly as possible. I hate missing out on these things.

And it looks like there's some new icons there, too. Wonder what they do...

Ooh, I think you're right about the IR. That would be amazing. I never had a device that was compatible with the 4U/4U+ app so I never got access to those great items. With IR, I'll be able to fully use my Tamagotchi!
