Tamagotchi Pix adds a camera alongside your virtual pet

And they're coming to Australia!

Tamagotchi Pix is the newest iteration of the popular handheld virtual pet, adding a camera to the form factor you’re likely familiar with.

“This new device takes the core of Tamagotchi play (nurturing and caring for your Tamagotchi character) and further immerses users into the Tamagotchi universe with exciting NEW features,” Bandai Namco said in a press release.

“It’s not just about feeding your virtual pet anymore, you can now cook for your Tamagotchi character, have food delivered, explore the real world to meet Tamagotchi friends and add pictures of the adventures with a built-in social feed. How you raise your Tamagotchi character will affect gameplay in a whole new way with new personal rooms and gameplay that dictate your Tamagotchi character’s future profession when they go back to Tamagotchi Planet.”
