I stumbled upon this video of someone customizing their 20th Anniversary Tamagotchi and I noticed something interesting.
A little while back, I took apart one of the new American replicas and pointed out that the sound is being transmitted through coils instead of wires:
However, in the video above, the Japanese replica is shown to still be using the original wire layout instead. Why the Japanese and US models differ in how they transmit sound, I couldn’t say. But I feel it’s something that should be kept in mind if you buy one of the Japanese ones and want to customize it.
Also in the video, you’ll notice the Japanese version has a different back plate that doesn’t have the same information that the US one does. I wonder if versions from other parts of the world will have different backs too, or if they’ll just reuse the US one.
Started the galaxy P2. I have a particular fondness for the P2 because it was my first.
I’ve noticed a few differences already. First is ShiroBabytchi’s animation cycle, which is completely different. Also, the buttons are immediately responsive instead of having the frame delay the originals had. And there’s no confirmation beep when pressing B to start the game.
The game is changed slightly too. On the original, the Tamagotchi started with 5 when it’s born, and each new round started with the number it thought of in the previous round. This one starts with a random number for each round.
