Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Announced

As part of the Kingdom Hearts 20th anniversary announcements, Bandai announced two Tamagotchi models. There will be Dark Mode and Light Mode variants. They will debut in Japan in October 2022. Each one will cost 2,530円 (~$20). Premium Bandai is taking pre-orders until May 5, 2022. However, the US site does not have a product listing for it. [Thanks, Dengeki Hobby Web!]

Like the Demon Slayer Tamagotchi variants, the Kingdom Hearts models will be a part of the Tamagotchi Nano line. this means they are monochromatic, simpler, and smaller than something like a Tamagotchi On. Also, like both the Demon Slayer and Jujutsu Kaisen models, people will be able to potentially raise iconic characters in the series. Different versions of Sora can show up, including him in Halloween Town and Pride Rock forms. People could also end up getting characters like Roxas, Xion, Axel, Aqua, Ventus, Terra, Riku, Kairi, Donald, and Goofy, based on the early images. Other mystery characters, like King Mickey, are also teased. You will feed your character themed food, like Paupu Fruit, and take part in minigames inspired by the series.

Here’s a look at the lineup of potential characters. 20 are teased. There is also a vote ongoing to add two more Heartless characters. That will run until April 11, 2022.
