“Tamagotchi Connection” Digital Pets Being Relaunched for 20th Anniversary [Pre-Order]

In 2004, a few years before the launch of the original iPhone, the devices being confiscated in classrooms the world over were the Tamagotchi Connection series of digital pets, which could interact with one another via infrared in order to become friends, play games, and even give birth to offspring.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of that original release, Bandai is about to relaunch the Tamagotchi Connection family, now with revamped programming but much of the same nostalgic gameplay that allows you to set up play dates, gift exchanges, and more between multiple Tamas.


The new Tamagotchi Connection releases on July 10th, 2024 and can be pre-ordered for $30 on Amazon in your choice of Bubbles, Ice Cream, Rainbow Sky, or Clear Retro shell designs. They also have a Blue and Pink Grafitti matching two-pack for $58.
