Tamagotchi Fans everywhere were super excited about the news of Bandai America releasing a new line of Tamagotchi products called Tamagotchi L.I.F.E. (Love Is Fun Everywhere).
More information was released at the Licensing International Expo 2012 in Las Vegas. You can see the video by clicking here.
Many Tamagotchi fans were disappointed at the fact that Bandai would release products only at a target audience of women ages 20-29. Most were also upset over the fact that Bandai would not be releasing a new virtual pet, and are even going away from virtual pets altogether.
Tamagotchi Japan is probably the more successful side of Tamagotchi. Tamagotchi fans in America and outside of Japan want Bandai to release toys and merchandise that are being sold in Japan. They also want the official Tamagotchi anime to be released around the world for all to enjoy.
Tamagotchi fans want something that all ages and all genders can enjoy, not girly clothing and furnishings for an older audience only. Bandai isn't doing a good job of that. I just wonder if they even listen to what we want...
