The Tamagotchi Connection Version 3 (abbreviated as the V3) is the third Tamagotchi Connection release that debuted in February 2006.

It is the successor to the Tamagotchi Connection Version 2 and is also the international equivalent to the Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus.

It was the first Tamagotchi release outside Japan to interact with the now defunct 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.

The Tamagotchi Connection V3 is the basis for the programming of, as well as the shell design for the 20th Anniversary Tamagotchi Connection, while also merging features from the Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus

Design[]

The Tamagotchi Connection Version 3 is similar to the Connection V2 in size and general shape. It continues to have a black and white LCD screen over a printed background, a cracked egg shell border surrounding the screen, and three rubber buttons.

What differentiates the V3 from its predecessors is the addition of a small antenna on the top left of the shell, mimicking a cellphone antenna. This is purely aesthetic, and does not add any additional functionality.

Features[]

TamaTown[]

Main article: TamaTown

TamaTown is a companion website that allowed users to download items and gotchi points to their V3. By entering their username at the login screen, users could explore Tamagotchi Town. Items could be bought from various shops and gotchi points could be earned from playing various games. Other features included flash shorts which could be watched in a movie theater and visiting locations on Earth to collect souvenirs. Upon logging out, the website would give passwords to be entered into the V3 so earned gotchi points and items could be downloaded.

Food[]

The user is presented with two options for feeding: Meal or Snack, with the Treats category from the V2 being disbanded and spread between the two. 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.

Souvenirs[]

Main article: Tamagotchi Connection Version 3/List of Souvenirs

Souvenirs are collectable items that can be collected by interacting with the Tamatown website and exchanging passwords between the site and the Tamagotchi toy. They could be generally be earned by playing games, traveling to locations through the Travel Center, and clicking on them in a location.

Games[]

There are six games on the V3, each being unlocked one after another as the Tamagotchi grows up. As the Tamagotchi grows older, certain games will begin to yield more Gotchi Points than before. As with the Version 2, a minimum of 3lb excess weight is required to play a game and doing well in games will reverse care mistakes.

  • Get ♪: The only game available at the baby stage. 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: Unlocked at the child stage. 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: Unlocked at the teen stage. 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 even if the next flag arrow to appear is the same as the imitation arrow.
    • 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: Unlocked at the teen stage. The user uses the A and C buttons to move the Tamagotchi left to right and the B button to jump and repel the ball with the Tamagotchi's head (called "heading" in soccer).
  • Memory: Unlocked at the adult stage. The user uses the three buttons to repeat a pattern of arrows shown on screen. The pattern starts at two arrows, but will increase by one every three/four rounds until a maximum of eight.
  • Sprint: Unlocked at the adult stage. The user must repeatedly press buttons to encourage their Tamagotchi to get to the finish line.

Point Donation[]

The Point menu within the Friend List icon allowed the user to donate their Gotchi Points to the Gotchi King and obtain passwords to visit him and acquire special souvenirs as a reward. Obtaining all three nets the user the Royal Costume item.

Family History[]

Introduced on the Entama and the Keitai respectively, these functions allowed the user to view their current Tamagotchi's parent and grandparent, several of their final stats, and a password that could be used to visit them on Tamatown. Information could also be viewed for previously owned Tamagotchi.

List of Codes[]

Main article: Tamagotchi Connection Version 3/List of Shop Items

Trivia[]

  • Several of the games on Connection V3 have been seen on other Tamagotchi pets:
  • The V3 is the last Tamagotchi Connection iteration to have Mimitchi as the series mascot, being featured in the O of the logo. She would be replaced by Mametchi in this version's second wave.
  • The Connection V3 is the first international Tamagotchi to feature a new sprite for Mametchi, which more closely resembles his current design, that has been available in all versions following the V3 up until Tamagotchi Friends.
  • It is possible to reset the items in the shop by changing the clock at certain times and waiting for one minute to pass. This can be done at 2:59pm, 6:59pm, and 11:59pm.[1]
