Tamagotchis are back. Bandai has given the toy some new life and is relaunching the digital pet as Tamagotchi Friends.

The new version will be getting some 21st century updates to keep it relevant and keep kids satisfied. The most notable change comes in the fact you can choose one of the several different "characters" to raise as your own.

It will come fully loaded with "short range communication" which lets you bump your Tamogotchis together so they can interact and play like real people. Interested?[Tamagotchi Friends]
