Bandai opened pre-orders for a new Tamagotchi featuring R2-D2 from the Star Wars franchise in Japan. The new toy will be officially available in November 2021. [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]

In this Tamagotchi, you will be able to raise an R2-D2 by regularly charging its power and cleaning its body. If you neglect the maintenance, the robot will break down.

As you raise the virtual robot, it will eventually receive upgrades. The normal R2-D2 will have nine available Skill Modes. It can also receive a further upgrade to one of the five Special Skill or Pilot modes. The number of mini-games that can be played in the toy will also depend on the upgrade.

Although the Tamagotchi specifically focuses on R2-D2, it will also feature fourteen other characters from the Star Wars series, including C-3PO, Yoda, and Boba Fett. A random character will appear on the screen after several hours have passed.

Bandai has also published a trailer for the R2-D2 Tamagotchi. You can watch it right below:

Bandai has been releasing new Tamagotchis inspired by many other famous franchises in recent months. The company had previously released Tamagotchis based on Neon Genesis Evangelion, Demon Slayer, and Twisted Wonderland.

The Star Wars R2-D2 Tamagotchi will be available on November 13, 2021.
