Jurassic World Dominion, the next movie in the Jurassic Park series, will debut on June 10, 2022. Just over a month later, Japan will get a Jurassic World Tamagotchi as tie-in merchandise. Bandai announced it will begin selling two Tamagotchi nano models based on the series on July 29, 2022. The Dinosaur Amber and Dinosaur Egg versions will each cost 2,530円 (~$20).
The official site offered some details about how the Jurassic World Tamagotchi will work. There are two possible baby dinosaurs you can start with. Each one has different possible final dinosaurs they can evolve into as they grow. There will be 26 total options. The preliminary art showed evolutionary options like the Ankylosaurus, Baryonyx, Carnotaurus, Dimetrodon, Indominus Rex, Pteranodon, Pyroraptor, Spinosaurus, T-Rex, and Triceratops. Players are tasked with feeding them, cleaning up after them, and playing three minigames with them. The three games are Which One?, which involves picking an egg with a baby dinosaur on it, Escape, which sees a person running from a T-Rex, and catching fish in Catch Food.
Here’s a closer look at the dinosaurs present in the game.
