Before Pet Society, there was the Tamagotchi!
The Tamagotchi is a handheld digital-pet game, where you take care of your pet in a simulation.
The Tamagotchi was invented by Akihiro Yokoi from Bandai Co., Ltd on the year of 1996 in Japan and was available worldwide since 1997.
On the 20th anniversary of Tamagotchi in 2017, a series of limited-edition miniature Tamagotchis were released with a smaller screen and body while the visuals were still black and white in colour.
And now in 2019, Bandai has returned again with the new conceptualised Tamagotchi On that comes with a glittery pastel-coloured casing and also offers colourful visuals on screen now.
Not just that, you can now also connect with your Tamagotchi buddy for play-dates together with the infrared sensor on top of the eggshell shaped toy.
