    I don't believe it, I thought we had seen the end of these things; but it seems not.

    Tamagotchi returns. Be afraid, be very afraid




    They're back... and this time they're infrared


    Tamagotchi, the once ubiquitous virtual pet that was discontinued in 1998, is to make a comeback later this year. The new versions of the pocket-sized gizmos, called Tamagotchi Plus, go on sale in Japan on 20 March.

    The devices will be able to communicate with each other via infrared, which means that they'll be able to go on virtual dates, buy each other presents and even have little Tamagotchi babies. The horror, the horror.

    While the screens will be larger and there'll be a choice of six colours, the pets will essentially function in the same way as their predecessors, with a virtual chick growing into an adult - if looked after properly.

    Between 1996-1998, toy manufacturers Bandai sold a staggering 40 million Tamagotchis. Tamagotchi Plus will cost around £10 when it reaches the UK and Bandai are expected to announce a firm release date within the next few weeks. Don't say we didn't warn you.
