A few days ago, a leaked promotional leaflet allowed us to find out about two new Tamagotchi models coming to Japan, featuring Eevee. And on Tuesday, Bandai officially announced the two toys, that will be released on January 26th in Japan. As mentioned last time, there’s two versions: Daisuki Eevee (lit. I Love Eevee!) and Colourful Friends, sold 2 484 Yen. You can raise your Eevee, and have it evolved into one of the many Eevolutions. Special variants (Rocket Team Eevee, for example) are also present!
Here’s some official pictures of the two Eevee Tamagotchi toys:
