R2-D2 Tamagotchi Officially Coming Later This Year
If you’re on the hunt for retro-esque gadgets, here’s something for you. Disney and Bandai have collaborated for a brand new R2-D2 Tamagotchi, and it’s coming later this year.
Disney and Bandai have announced the new R2-D2 Tamagotchi, where you can take care of your own digital version of the popular astromech droid from the Star Wars franchise.
The R2-D2 Tamagotchi has an egg-shaped design featuring notable elements from the droid and comes with two color options; white and translucent blue. It sports a monochrome LCD display with a 24 x 30 resolution and 3 physical buttons below it. It will function pretty much the same as the other Tamagotchi devices but it will also come with Star Wars-themed activities for added entertainment value. This includes about 19 different skills and 9 different games.
Given that R2-D2 is not a living creature, you will not have to feed it. Instead, you will have to instead charge its battery and cleaning it up when necessary. Basically, they have implemented some changes to make it more fitting for the iconic character.
The R2-D2 Tamagotchi will be officially launching on 11th November 2021 with pre-orders opening up on 3rd August 2021 at 12PM ET. It’s only confirmed for the US at the moment with no word yet on being available in other regions but we will report more on this as soon as information becomes available so stay tuned.
Pokdepinion: I have my money ready for this. I can’t stress out how much I love Tamagotchis and I need to collect as many of them as I can.
