Weekly Dose of Gaming News - Zelda Game & Watch and Tamagotchi Smart
You guys remember Tamagotchi pets, right? The little digital pets that we spend every hour of every day on for a month, and then they died after we forgot about them in some corner of our room? Well, they're coming back in watch-form along with the Legend of Zelda-themed Game & Watch console.
The Zelda-themed Game & Watch is releasing to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the franchise and will include four games: The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Link's Awakening, and an updated version of Vermin, with Link smashing the moles. We can't believe it's been 35 years since the beloved franchise launched. Speaking of which, we also can't believe it's been 25 years since the release of the original Tamagotchi pets.
The upcoming smartwatches come in various colors and bear a striking resemblance to the initial pets. They come with new characters and you can use your voice to wake them up and pet them. They will also have a camera, a clock, and a pedometer, so they're obviously multi-purpose and totally necessary right?
The Zelda Game & Watch will be available on November 12th, but the Tamagotchi Smart will only be available in Japan. We're keeping a very close eye on any international release for our little nostalgia pets.
Which one do you want first?
