Takashi Murakami’s Take On Tamagotchi

Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami, who is known for his bright and colorful art, is now doing his spin on the Tamagotchi virtual toys from the 1990s and 2000s. The artist revealed his project in an Instagram post, where he shared that he spent a year or so working on a children’s handheld nurturing game inspired by the old virtual toys. This marks Murakami’s first venture into game development. 

The game will be played in a flower-shaped case, with its pixelated petals reflecting Murakami’s art style. Sonic Unleashed director Yoshihisa Hashimoto will develop the game.
