Bandai Taps into Two Nostalgic Eras with Pac-Man Tamagotchi

Blend 80s gaming with 90s virtual pet obsession? What could possibly go right/wrong/insane? Everything, apparently! Except for the wrong part, because this toy looks super fun. I wasn’t sure if you, the pet parent, would be raising a Pac-Man or a creature, but it looks like the gimmick is that you have a virtual Tamagotchi pet, and the Pac-Man world just sort of periodically infiltrates it. The Pac-Man Tamagotchi is available for preorder now on Amazon. It costs $24.99 and will ship March 2020.

Amazon Description:

New from Bandai, PAC-MAN is helping to raise and nurture your Tamagotchi character! Raise your Tamagotchi character well and you might receive one of the surprise characters! You can feed your Tamagotchi rice (oh my god is that not the most adorable thing?) or PAC-MAN’s favorite: cherries! Place your yellow and PAC-MAN maze-styled device into your PAC-MAN case.

Thusly, the PAC-MAN Ghosts will go after your Tamagotchi character, so be ready to call PAC-MAN in to help! If the bugs start to invade the screen, call PAC-MAN to save your Tamagotchi character before it’s too late! This device includes two fun mini games: Pac Game and Catch Game. Raise your Tamagotchi from egg to baby to Adult and how you take care of it will decide which of the 7 Adults you’ll get.
