Bandai announced a new Tamagotchi Uni model that will appear worldwide. Like the Tamagotchi Smart, which launched in Japan, it comes with an accessory that allows it to be worn like a watch. This model will also be able to connect directly to Wi-Fi without any additional steps, so you can update it. It will come out in July 2023, with Amazon noting a July 15, 2023. Pink and purple versions will be available. Each one will be $59.99.

The announcement went over some of the things people can expect. 20 adult characters will be present. You’ll be able to marry them off and then raise their kids. However, it doesn’t mention if there will be a “genetics” like system as in Tamagotchi On, where the child characters inherit traits from both parents for a totally original look. Minigames will be present, as usual, and there will be accessories for characters to wear. The language options will be English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish.

As for connections, it seems like people could perhaps connect locally and over Wi-Fi. The product listing mentioned a local connection for playing, trading, and arranging marriages between characters. However, it also brought up a Tamaverse area to find a love interest for a Tamagotchi or get new looks.

Here’s a closer look at what the Tamagotchi Uni model looks both inside and outside of its watch holder.

The Tamagotchi Uni will appear on July 15, 2023 and be sold via Amazon and Premium Bandai.
