Tamagotchi, the Japanese virtual pet you have raised and fed during the 1990’s, turns 16. In celebration of the toy’s coming-of-age, Namco Bandai has launched a new mobile app based on the original digital pet.
Titled “Tamagotchi L.i.f.e.” (short for “Love Is Fun Everywhere”), the app simulates your experience with the egg-shaped toy, from feeding your pet to cleaning their pixelated poop. It also comes with more features. For one, the app and your pet come alive in color and in higher resolution. It also features more characters and a section where you can keep your Tamagotchi pets.
Pet owners can also collect Tamagotchi Signature Wall papers, as well as show off their digital pets on Facebook.
The Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app works with Android 2.3 or higher and is now available for free at Google Play.
