Tamagotchi Returning to Stores in America

Bandai has announced that the long-awaited return of the iconic pet-raising interactive toys, Tamagotchi, to North America is imminent. On November 5th, the toy will once hit store shelves across the country, retailing for $14.99.

It also made for one of the coolest toys ever.

“They travel around in the Battle Van in the comics, so it was important for us to do our version of that,” Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb confirms on Netflix’s Media Center. “It’s not the Batmobile, but it’s definitely an iconic character that people know.”
