Bandai Namco has announced that Tamagotchi, those cute virtual pets from the 90s, will be coming to iOS and Android in 2018.
The free-to-play mobile game will be called My Tamagotchi Forever and its release will mark Tamagotchi’s 20th anniversary.
The trailer reveals a village setting filled with Tamagotchi, suggesting possible interaction with other virtual pets. There are also hints that the game could include an augmented-reality feature, with a child and her mother interacting with a Tamagotchi in the real world, although this hasn’t been confirmed.
Fans can sign up to enter a draw for a chance to become the inspiration for a new Tamagotchi character, which will be added to the game.
