This year is the 40th anniversary of Pac-Man. He's already got his own special music video to celebrate the occasion and now to kick-off the year-long event, he's teamed up with Tamagotchi to bring "Tama-Lovers" a whole new virtual pet experience.
In addition to a Tamagotchi pet, this one also stars Pac-Man and includes some iconic features from the long-running game series. The device will go on pre-sale next month on 5th February and will appear in-store on 15th March. Like a regular Tamagotchi, it's perfect for on-the-go-entertainment and can easily fit into pockets or bags. There's also a wearable keychain.
Here's some more information about the Pac-Man version of Tamagotchi:
- Raise and nurture your Tamagotchi character with the help of PAC-MAN
- PAC-MAN will save your Tamagotchi character from the ghosts and bugs
- Feed your Tamagotchi rice or PAC-MAN’s favorite, cherries
- Raise your Tamagotchi character from egg to baby to adult
- 7 adults included, which is determined by how you take care of your PAC-MAN Tamagotchi character
- Two fun mini-games: play the Pac Game and the Catch Game!
- Two different shell styles to choose from
- Two PAC-MAN mazes to choose from; yellow and black
- Age grade: 8+
- Battery (LR44) included
- No WiFi needed
If you missed it, earlier this month the Belgian fashion brand Kipling announced a new range of merchandise celebrating Pac-Man's 40th anniversary. The lineup includes both women’s and men’s accessories, with backpacks, suitcases, totes, waistpacks, pouches and more on offer.
Is this the virtual pet you've been waiting for? Tell us below.
This actually sounds kinda cool. It's a better way to celebrate Pac-Man's 40th anniversary than just releasing more clothing featuring him.
Aww, Pac-Man isn’t the star himself, he just helps you raise the Tamagotchi. That’s not as exciting but it’s still pretty cool.
Way better than the knockoff tamagotchi I got for Christmas all those years ago
Ok. Lemme just say.
I NEED THIS.
Is there a Pikachu or pokemon tamagotchi? This could be really cool!
@mother_brain_85 there’s an eevee one they announced last year! It’s really cool but sadly it’s Japan exclusives and really pricey online
I guess this counts as a Pac-Man game?
It's real neat. I just hope there is a new Pac-Man game for Switch.
Bandai in the UK seem to have given up on Tamagotchi so I doubt we'll get this sadly. Looks cool though!
I actually want this.
@RyanSilberman There will never be a greater Pac-man Game than DX.
Pretty Expensive too I am sure.
Pretty sure Tamagotchi is not 40 years old 🤔
I shall be adding these to my huge Tamagotchi collection. I love Pac-Man and Tamagotchi. So these are a must 😄
@mother_brain_85 There is an Eevee Tamagotchi, where u clean hair balls instead of “droppings” and it evolves into one if it’s Eevee-lutions depending on how it’s raised!
Didn't know these were still a thing!
Talk about a blast from the past, all I'd need to go with this is a furby
I'd be infinitely more exited if they announced that Eevee Tamagotchi for the West, but I guess we're at least getting this one...
They're up on amazon for preorder $19.99 for the tamagotchi itself or $24.99 and it comes with a pac man case to hold it
@mother_brain_85 There's an Eevee Tamagochi from a couple of years ago.
There was also the Pikachu Mini from the GSC days.
