Tamagotchi ID - New Updates

Hi everyone, it's me Jesmond! I know I haven't posted in such a long time and I truly apologise for that. After yesterday's great news posted by OM21 I just had to write something. If you haven't read the previous post I suggest that you do so, it's very interesting. We're going to have a new Tamagotchi in full color! And it sounds soooo cool!! It will be called Tamagotchi ID. Here's a picture I found on the internet:

I think I'll be getting the yellow one, it looks beautiful :) I love that they re-designed the unit; it looks more streamlined now. As you might recall, the previous Tamagotchi + Color had a flat back. This one seems to have a more rounded back and the crystal-facet looks so nice.
I found a link with some more information (click here). I translated the page from Japanese with Google Translate so the English is really bad; however it should give you the basic idea of the features we should be expecting. I would like to point out that this Tamagotchi will have an LCD color screen instead of OLED (the TMGC+C's screen was OLED); I'm not sure how this will affect the screen quality but hopefully it's all for the best. I also like that we can now get costumes for the characters. That sounds awesome!
Make sure that you leave a comment telling us what you think of the Tamagotchi ID; I hope you're all as excited as I am about this :)

I really dont think this is a good idea for a person from a different country to buy this tamagotchi as ive heard that it should only be used in japan because it works mainly through downloading games and other things through a japanese cellphone. so if i brought it i would only get limited usage out of this tamagotchi as downloads from japan dont work on british mobiles. IM SORRY BUT ITS TRUE. LET SOMEBODY TEST IT OUT FROM OUTSIDE OF JAPAN BEFORE EVERYONE STARTS BUYIN BECAUSE IT WILL BE A WASTE OF PEOPLES MONEY.

klaud said...

sam i think that this tama works prefectly without downloads...i know that this can limit the usage....but i found the link wwww.tama-id.com to make the downloads for this new tama...so if its a site i think that any phone will connect...but i think that we need to pay for this downloads...sorry for my english....

i'm portuguese :)

Wolf Nanaki said...

Sam: LOL WHOOPS TOO LATE I PREORDERED ONE :V

No seriously though, I see no problem with people outside Japan ordering the TiD. I'm sure it's a fun Tamagotchi even without the downloaded content.

hi there! I'm very excited too :)

the dimensions for this version are: W58xH68xD31mm so it's a couple of milimetres bigger than the TMGC+C

Anonymous said...

thanks for sharing the good news, your blog is great! =]

Jesmond said...

The dimensions of the TMGC+C are 55mm x 65.5mm x 28mm...so yes, you're right, it is a few millimeters ticker. Sorry about that, I had calculated the dimensions just by looking at the photos, I should have checked before I posted about it :)

Varcoda said...

awesome! i'm gonna wait till some people have gotten it and tried it out, check for reviews and stuff first though :) but they really should release color tamas in english!

Tamagotchi ! said...

Jesmond, I still don't get what a tamagotchi ID is. Can you please tell me? And which month is it coming out?

THANKS A LOT :)

Signed:
Tamagotchi !

Wolf Nanaki said...

"Tamagotchi !", to answer your question, the Tamagotchi iD is a new Tamagotchi coming out next month in Japan. See my last post for more detailed information.

Rachel said...

With a single tear i must say that's a awesome looking Tamagotchi.

Victoria said...

It looks like the Tama color,is it the same in anyway?(besides the color)

Jesmond said...

There are many differences between the TMGC ID and the TMGC+C. We can't know exactly what these differences are until we get our hands on a Tamagotchi ID and test it out. We'll let you know when we do :)

Varcoda said...

seems like two ebay is taking preorders too. one seller charges $110 USD with $12 shipping if i remember right. the other seller sells it at $69.90 USD with free shipping. what a difference!

Anonymous said...

Not about Tamagotchi ID, but I was looking at gettign a Tamagotchi color, but was wondering do you NEED two of them to mate and such, if not how can it mate with just 1 tamagotchi color!

Jesmond said...

No you don't need to have 2 tamagotchis to make them have babies. There's an option that allows you to choose a partner for your tamagotchi.

Well one more question, I was thinking of asking for christmas (I know it seems early but its coming soon!) 1 tamagotchi color and 1 music star, does this sound good or should i get 2 of one, or something like that....tell me what you think!

Varcoda said...

getting one of each is better ( i got one of each!). getting two of the same would probably double the rate you get bored of them after awhile, and getting two just to connect with each other isnt as fun XD the colour tama's worth buying!

Anonymous said...

Hhaha! sorry just one more question! I was thinking of getting a third one of a different version, do you think I should get a version 5 or a version 4.5 or a version 5.5, which one do u think is best? And what are the differences?

Anonymous said...

I am a half blood Japanese and my auntie is getting me a tama id

JaZm said...

and i also have a color plus

Varcoda said...

just dont get a familitchi, i found it horribly boring XD but thats subjective of course. it was too easy to play and the games arent as fun.

NeptuneKai said...

Anonymous said...

Jesmond said...

You're referring to the Christmas tree. I got it this morning as well because it's soon going to be Christmas :). It doesn't have anything to do with the code you posted.

Cherry Belly said...

I'm going to buy it for the summer.
I like the "crystal" aroud the screen.
I wanted to know the price in Japan because I'm going to Japan in July and 5040¥ ($53) is so cheap !
This Tamagotchi is about $95 on Ebay !

I don't think this Tamagotchi need a cellphone to update ... because Tamagotchi is supposed to be bought for little gurls, who does not have any cell phone (I suppose ...)
