It seems the Spy x Family Tamagotchi that lets people raise Anya Forger won’t be a Japan-exclusive item. Amazon’s US branch now has a product listing for it. It notes the toy will arrive in March 23, 2023 and cost $24.99. The virtual pet was announced for Japan back in June 2022. [Thanks, Wario64!]
The Amazon product page shows two of these Tamagotchi Nano variants. One is the green and beige model with icons referencing Anya’s parents, Loid and Yor Forger. The black and pink model, complete with decorations referencing Anya’s hair clips and dress, also appears.
This is virtual pet that involves taking care of Anya. You can feed her, play games like dodgeball or running from bad guys with bond, or help her behave in front of Henry Henderson. Rather than evolving, her clothes will change depending on her care. This could result in different actions or events. Also, unlike many virtual pets, Anya doesn’t “die” if you don’t take good care of her. Instead, she’ll run away.
Bandai Namco’s released a number of anime-inspired virtual pets. For example, there are ones based on Evangelion, Demon Slayer, and Jujutsu Kaisen.
The Spy x Family Anya Tamagotchi is available in Japan, and the Amazon US listing says it will appear on March 23, 2023.
