A small V-Pet update.

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Based on new information, it appears the upcoming US 20th Digimon V-Pet will indeed be English versions of the Japanese 20th V-Pet from a few years ago.

The actual lineup of Digimon in it is unconfirmed for now, but being more or less identical to the Japanese 20th is likely (there's only 4 models instead of 5, so a 5th as a con exclusive or something wouldn't be shocking.)


Update- At this point the egg sets 'look' to be identical to the Japanese 20th, so the lineup is likely identical, but until people get a chance to fully dig into them we won't be 100% sure.


Gamestop in the US is still taking preorders for $20 each. The SKU if they have trouble finding it (if you go in to pre-order) is 191562. At the moment this is not listed at GameStop's website and you have to go into the store. When you give them the SKU they will likely say it's for 'Assorted Digivice', this is the correct item.

Pre-orders can also be done at EBGames Canada.

All information suggests a wider release once it's out.



Thanks to Tamaplace for the update. It would have been more appreciated if they made information easier to find.

Yaaay! If it's confirmed to have the 20th Ver. Japanese roster, I'm gonna snatching a yellow one on-line for sure! Having the enhanced version from 2017 doesn't make sense to just come back to the original from 1997 in my opinion.

I was originally irritated with TamaPalace for being vague, under the assumption that they were just looking for clicks on their blog.

After speaking with them, it's very apparent that they just don't know what they're talking about when it comes to Digimon pets.

They have the device in hand at this point, and they're uploading an unboxing video. I've been speaking with them about how to tell if it's a legit English translation of the 20th anniversary or if it's a modded version that only runs multiple instances of the V1 egg.

We should find out soon, since the second egg selection happens when the user's Koromon evolves into Agumon or Betamon.

Woot! I thought I was going to have to drop $60 to get one of these. Saw this yesterday morning and went straight to Gamestop after work to place a preorder

They have started posting their previews, in the most inconvenient way possible. Instagram Story.

So far 4 videos and an image, front and back of box opened, flipping through the manual which is blank but rather thick, Egg, Botamon Training and a screenshot of Koromon.
Grabbed some shots to help those that don't care to make an Instagram account to view 15 second videos. Click for larger image.
EDIT: Oh and the launch screen, but that's a proper post.

Looking like it's exactly the same as the Japanese release but with English translation. So just use the Ver.20th guides.

They've posted a gif of of the eggs available. https://tamapalace.tumblr.com/post/184974742971/the-20th-anniversary-digimon-digital-monster-that
I'd say this pretty much confirms it is the Ver.20th
The only question is how they will handle the exclusives.
With this tweet they suggest that each color will have a unique character. https://twitter.com/TamaPalace/status/1129902491313876992
I believe there were only the 2 anime eggs in the original 20th, the 2nd release had one for each of the three but either way 2,3,5 does not equal 4 so who knows.
They sure do love being vague.

Did the 20th manual have the exclusives listed? If so, when they finally get the manual posted that should answer that.

Do you have a link for the guides?

Tamapalace just dropped an english manual available as a PDF on their Tumblr.
