When Tamagotchi first launched in 1997, the phones back then may not have been powerful enough to handle something like a phone version of the once beloved and addictive toy, though some might argue they already were. But owners Bandai, no Bandai Namco, had a lot of opportunities to jump onto the mobile train between then and now but never really did so. Well, it finally has, sort of. In 2018, Tamagotchi fans, or at least their children, will be able to enjoy again, or for the first time, the toy that took the world almost by storm. Unfortunately, it might have a lot more competition now than it did back then.
