Tamagotchi Mini Tamagotchi Connection Version 3 Tamagotchi Connection Version 4
This article is about an English Tamagotchi release.


The Tamagotchi Connection Version 3 (abbreviated as the V3) is the first Tamagotchi release outside Japan that interacts with the now retired Tamatown. It has more characters than the previously released versions (52 total) and offers a password concept similar to the Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus and the Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus.

More items are available (see: List of Version 3 Shop Items), and the Souvenirs concept (see: List of Version 3 Souvenirs) was introduced.

The shell has a small antenna sticking out of the left side, much like the Keitai and the Tamagotchi Plus Akai. This is also the first American Tamagotchi to feature the new Mametchi character that has been available in all versions following the V3. It was the last American release to have Mimitchi as the mascot, which was changed to Mametchi in this version's second wave.

Health Meter

The Check Meter consists of six screens: Hunger/Happiness, Discipline, Name/Age/Weight, Gender/Generation, Gotchi Points, and Username.

Hunger/Happiness

Hunger and happiness are displayed in four hearts. The more hearts filled, the more full or happy the Tamagotchi is.

Discipline

Discipline is displayed in a bar with 9 lines. The more lines filled, the better disciplined the Tamagotchi is. The Tamagotchi may continue to beep for more discipline even if the Discipline bar is full.

Name/Age/Weight

The Tamagotchi's name may be a maximum of 5 characters. The Tamagotchi's age and weight are also displayed. A single Earth day is equal to 1 Tamagotchi year. The Tamagotchi gains weight as it eats and loses weight by playing games.

Gender/Generation

The gender is displayed as either "Boy" or "Girl". Every time the Tamagotchi has a baby, the baby will become the next generation of the Tamagotchi's family.

Gotchi Points

The user can earn Gotchi Points by playing games. Up to 9999P (Points) can be stored on the V3.

Username

The screen displays the username the user created during the initial setup of the device. The username was used for accessing Tamagotchi Town, which has been since retired by Bandai.

Food

The user is presented with two options for feeding: Meal or Snack. There are 4 default meals and 4 default snacks. Additional meals and snacks can be purchased at the Shop. Purchasing a food item is only good for one feeding. For more, the user must purchase the item again.

Toilet/Flush

The Toilet icon is used to clean up a Tamagotchi's poop.

Games/Activity

Within the Activities menu, the user can play games, use items, buy items, enter passwords, or view souvenirs collected from Tamagotchi Town.

Games

There are six games: Get ♪, Bump, Flag, Heading, Memory, and Sprint.

Get ♪

Also released on the Shuku Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus, Get ♪ is available to all life stages. To play the game, the user must collect musical notes while avoiding poop. The user is presented with 3 barrels that catch notes. To cycle between the 3 barrels, use the left (A) button to move left and the right (C) button to move right. If the user catches a poop or misses a note, the game ends. To beat the game, the user must catch 100 musical notes.

Bump

Bump was originally released on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 2. The goal is to push the opponent on the ground. When "PUSH!" appears on screen, the user must press the middle (B) button to stop the power meter before each round. The goal is to stop the meter when the bar is completely full. The fuller the meter the more likely the Tamagotchi will win. However, a Tamagotchi can lose a round even if the meter was completely full. The heavier a Tamagotchi is (i.e. its weight), the higher chance of winning.

Flag

Also released on the Deka Tamagotchi, Flag requires the user to quickly select the matching flag once the Tamagotchi throws a black or white flag or both. When an arrow appears above the Tamagotchi, the user must press the corresponding button. If the Tamagotchi throws a black flag, press the left (A) button. For a white flag, press the right (C) button. For both flags, press A and C together. Periodically, an imitation arrow, black or white, will appear. It is much shorter than the flag arrows. If the user presses a button for an imitation flag, the Tamagotchi loses the game.

In the 1st round, the color and arrow direction will appear above the Tamagotchi in the same order as the buttons. In later rounds, a black arrow may appear above the Tamagotchi's white flag and vice versa.

Heading

Also released on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 2 and Deka Tamagotchi, Heading is a game which has also been released on the Ouchi no Home Deka Game King. The user uses the far left and far right buttons to move the Tamagotchi left to right and the middle button to jump and bop balls.

Memory

Memory is a game which has also been released on the Ouchi no Home Deka Game King. The user uses the three buttons to repeat a pattern of arrows shown on screen.

Sprint

Sprint is a button mashing game. The user must repeatedly press buttons to encourage their Tamagotchi to get to the finish line.
