Bandai America has announced a new version of the Tamagotchi virtual pet toy called the V5. This is the most technologically advanced version of the popular virtual pet toy.

The new version allows kids to raise multiple characters in one toy at the same time and the new version includes never before seen characters as well. "For the first time ever, Tamagotchi Connection V5 takes the Tamagotchi experience to new heights by giving fans the ability to take care of an entire family of characters at the same time," said Colleen Sherfey, senior director of marketing, Bandai America Inc. "Kids can share in the excitement as their characters play games together, trade gifts, and become pals. The depth of play and hours of endless entertainment make more family more fun."

A new feature called Familichi offers many types of families and generations that can be raised. The family can be Mames (intellectual), Memes (artistic), Kuchis (laid back) and Violes (cheerful). The way the family of siblings interacts will depend on how the player raises the characters. The V5 device sells for $14.99.
