Tamagotchi Friends: Dream Town Digital Friend, also known as Tamagotchi Dream Town and Tamagotchi Friends: Dream Town, is an upgraded version of the original Tamagotchi Friends with added content and five new characters. It comes in six new shell styles, all of which have a different build from the original Tamagotchi Friends.
The version originally appeared on an image from Bandai America's official website and is being sold on Amazon and eBay. They then became available at Hot Topic stores in the US and Canada in roughly May.
The Tamagotchi Dream Town retains many of the features of the original Tamagotchi Friends, such as NFC communication and sending text messages, but it also has new features, one of which is the skill system. The skill system is similar to that of the Tamagotchi P's; there are seven different skills and they determine which adult character the user will get. The skill that the Tamagotchi has is determined by the Dream School class they attend most (at least three times).
The Dream School feature is only accessible by teenage and adult characters. There are seven classes, each with a different game. Like the other games, Dream School games still give the user points, as well as making the Tamagotchi character lose weight and become happier. However, unlike normal games, Dream School games determine what skill the character gets.
This will affect which adult a teen becomes and in most cases, along with how well the teen was cared for. If no skill is obtained then the character obtained will be random.
Aside from Dream School, two other destinations have also been added, YUMEX-TV and Tama Circus, while the Park is removed. A "special" category is now added under the jewelry icon, which is where the Yume Kira Bag (from the Tama Circus) will be stored if the user obtains it. There is also a fortune-telling feature at Tama Circus. Furthermore, the user can now choose to dine at Music Cafe with other characters rather than only taking the food home.
The limit of five bumps per day has now been removed.
The body of the Tamagotchi Dream Town is similar to that of the original Tamagotchi Friends. It is roughly the same size, although it is a tiny bit thinner because the front is flat. There is gold paint around the rim, making it look similar to the Tamagotchi 4U. There is also embossed decoration above the screen with the Tamagotchi Friends logo on it, somewhat resembling a Tama Deco Pierce from the Tamagotchi P's. The borders around the screen are sloped towards it, and the front designs are actually a piece of paper behind a plastic plate, rather than being painted on.
- Colorful Bubbles (red body)
- Floral Gem (blue body)
- Green Leopard Gem (mint body)
- Pink Lace Gem (pink body)
- Kira Kira Gem (purple body)
- Zig Zag Gem (white body)
