GUYS!!! Good news for nostalgic adults who grew up in the ‘90s becuase TAMAGOCHI’S ARE BACK! This Japan-based toy company Bandai has rebooted a game modeled after the original Tamagotchi. The Telegraph reports that the re-released Tamagotchi handheld game made its debut on Amazon Japan earlier this year and stays relatively true to the original, with its monochromatic display and six original Tamagotchi characters that users must keep alive. Tamagotchi became a huge craze in Japan in 1996, and the United States in 1997; to date, more than 76 million of the egg-shaped gadgets have been sold worldwide. The new version is currently available in six colors via Amazon Japan for 2,000 yen (roughly $18).
