Tama Town is the latest sensation, which includes the original nurturing play pattern and character customization. Tama Town is the base for the Tama characters (sold separately).Attach any Tama character and activate character-specific new games.Includes an interchangeable design sheet and 1 lite character unit.
However, to spice things up, there's also a "Tama Figure" feature.
These are little plastic toys that attach to the top of the unit, and unlock new games, items, and foods.
From the looks of things, it seems that Bandai really, REALLY wanted to bring the TMGC+C to America, but knowing it would be a huge monetary risk, they decided to get as close as they could, while introducing a new feature to keep things fresh.
One screenshot even shows Belltchi in a living room with a fireplace!
Personally, I've got mixed feelings for this new toy; while the figurine concept is definitely interesting, I'm not personally too keen on the shell designs, and the idea of forking over $20 for a black-and-white version of a toy I already have.
But I'll most definitely be getting one to give it a fair chance.:)Images are all property of Engadget, so click here for even more pictures!When you collect multiple characters, Tama Town rewards you with special announcement. Great news for those living in North America: there's a brand new Tamagotchi toy heading our way!This new Tamagotchi's going to be called the "Tamatown Tama-Go".From the looks of the images, it appears to be a black-and-white version of the Tamagotchi Plus Color.
