Tamagotchi m!x (たまごっちみくす Tamagotchi Mikusu) (pronounced "Tamagotchi mix") is a range of Tamagotchi devices initially released in Japan on July 16, 2016.
Currently, there are 5 versions of the Tamagotchi M!X available. The first two versions to be released were the Melody and Spacy M!X, released on July 16th 2016. These versions featured Melody Land and Spacy Land as destinations on each respective version. The Melody and Spacy M!X comes in three colors: purple, blue, and pink. The melody M!X features a spotty pattern on its front face plate, while the Space sports a zigzag pattern.
The third M!X version to be released is the Anniversary M!X, which was released on November 23rd, 2016 to celebrate the anniversary of the Tamagotchi franchise. This version features new destinations and characters from older Tamagotchi releases, such as KuroMametchi and Ura Togetchi. It came in two colors, white and pink, both featuring a starry face plate pattern.
The fourth version to be released is the Sanrio M!X, released on April 15th, 2017, as a collaboration Tamagotchi between Sanrio and Bandai. On this version many Sanrio themed locations are available and it is possible to marry Sanrio Characters such as Hello Kitty and Gudetama. Only one design is available, which is Yellow with a pink face plate featuring various Sanrio and Tamagotchi Characters.
The fifth version to be released is the Dream M!X, released on July 15th, 2017. This version features Dream Town as a location, and features Kiraritchi, Yumemitchi, and Spacytchi as new characters. This version came in two colors, blue and pink, which have a face plate with a bow that sticks out slightly.
A sixth version is planned for release in late November 2017. The Anniversary Gift M!X appears to have a Christmas holiday theme, featuring content such as new characters, items, and locations. The only appearance currently confirmed is white with a faceplate much like the 20th Anniversary version, now with a ribbon design.
The toy introduced a brand new feature called "m!x". With this feature, the physical traits that a Tamagotchi will have when it is an adult are determined by what traits its parents had. The offspring of two Tamagotchis will have traits from both parents, for example, a Tamagotchi may have its mother's eyes and its father's body. This feature allows for hundreds of different possible outcomes from mating Tamagotchis.
