TECH: The Tamagotchi Virtual Pets Are Making a Comeback

Here’s more proof that EVERYTHING from the ’90s that has any shred of nostalgic appeal is going to be resurrected.

Remember the Tamagotchi virtual pets?  You might’ve had one as a kid . . . and, you know, you almost certainly let it die through your laziness.  Well now, a whole NEW generation of kids is going to get to kill their virtual animals.

The company that made Tamagotchis is Bandai Namco, and they’ve brought them back.  They’ll hit stores all over the country on the 5th of next month.

The design will be a little different . . . the little egg-shaped devices are about 20% smaller than the ’90s versions, and there are fewer buttons which makes it easier to take care of your virtual pet.  Kids today, man.  They have it so easy.

If you want one, they’ll cost $14.99.
