The mobile virtual pet tech phenomenon of the early 2000s is making its return — as a mobile app! The small egg computer will be reincarnated as a soon-to-be-released app for Android (coming soon to iOS) called Tamagotchi L.I.F.E. (which stands for Love Is Fun Everywhere), and we can't wait.
This week, the Tamagotchi blog released a sneak peek of the new app, and there is a good mix of features old and new. Users will be able to play a series of minigames with their virtual pets, unlock mobile wallpapers, and play in "Retro Mode."
The free Android app is available now, and you'll need to subscribe to the site for updates on the iPhone version. We're trying not to be too excited about the return of Tamagotchi (cue grown-up squeal). Will you download the Tamagotchi app?
