All Tamagotchi Releases to Date

Last year was the 25 year anniversary of the release of Tamagotchi in japan and I have an article coming up very soon to celebrate the global release which came a year later, but for now leading up to this celebration I wanted to put together a list of all the Tamagotchi releases which we have had to date in date order – although I won’t necessarily go in to details of the different shell designs. We will be looking at some of the accessory items however, as well as any of the games played on other devices such as consoles, PCs and smart phones.

For casual fans, people looking in to a nostalgic look in to their past or someone who doesn’t really know anything about this product range yet – be warned! This list is likely a lot bigger than you think it will be – especially if you’re outside of Japan and not aware of all of their exclusive releases.
