Make sure your droid maintenance skills are up to scratch because the first-ever Star Wars R2-D2 Tamagotchi is coming home!
It’s time to make sure your droid maintenance skills are up to scratch because the first-ever Star Wars R2-D2 Tamagotchi is coming this November. Tamagotchi quickly became a worldwide phenomenon in 1996 and quickly became the biggest selling toy of a generation. And now, they are coming to the galaxy far, far away…
Tamagotchi, the classic interactive virtual pet, will soon release its first-ever Star Wars device celebrating the galaxy’s greatest astromech. The Star Wars R2-D2 Tamagotchi arrives on November 11, and it’s up to fans to train, clean, and take care of the famous droid.
The R2-D2 Tamagotchi will be available in two shells. Both inspired by Artoo, with the iconic Tamagotchi display featuring adorable animations of the astromech. Loaded with various interactive experiences, fans will train R2-D2 to master 19 different skills; keep R2-D2 charged, clean, and playing two mini-games, including firefighting and Dejarik (a.k.a. holochess); help R2-D2 unlock seven more mini-games, and they must keep R2-D2 happy. (If he’s neglected for too long, Jawas may come to take Artoo away!)
Will you be giving the Artoo Tamagotchi a home? Leave a comment below. We’d love to hear your tips on droid maintenance.
