tamagotchi

Tamagotchi Was First Released on November 23rd, 1996.

November 23rd is the day Tamagotchi was first released by Bandai in Japan.

On this day in 1996, Bandai Co., Ltd. in Japan released this handheld game console in Japan for the first time.

Tamagotchi is the name of the game console itself and the generic name of the characters that appear.

The name comes from the word “Tamago”, which means “egg” in Japanese, and “watch” on a wristwatch.

The purpose of the game is to train the characters who live on the screen while playing and using the tools.

The shape of Tamagotchi changes depending on how it has been raised, so it’s a real pleasure to devise ways to raise it so that it will be the Tamagotchi you would like.

It became extremely popular in 1997, the following year of its release, and has been released in more than 30 countries around the world.

According to Bandai, it has sold more than 40 million units domestically and internationally.
