A few years ago, the Tamagotchi On brought the original obsession with digital pets to the modern age, with a colorful screen and much more interactivity. Now it’s getting a camera. The $ 60 Tamagotchi Pix announced today allows you to take photos of yourself and other real-world elements. Then you can put your little buddy right into the scene. Bandai America also says you can make up to 100 Tamagotchi friends by exploring the world, which could spark a bit of Pokemon Go-esque obsession.
Among other changes, the Tamagotchi Pix also has touch buttons instead of physical clickers. The camera also lets you capture real world colors that can be used to influence the food you cook for your little friend. Of course, you can just order food for your pet, as most of us will in 2021. Your photos will also shape your pet’s future career, which they will adopt when they return to their home planet.
