The 1990′s virtual pet game Tamagotchi is making a comeback in the form of an app for Android devices. As the first mobile offering under the new Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. (Love Is Fun Everywhere) brand, the app is a recreation of the original egg-shaped toy that launched in 1997 and has since sold more than 79 million units worldwide.
Taking a virtual page from the video game world, mobile apps will be subject to age-based ratings thanks to a new partnership between the ESRB and wireless association CTIA. With more than 500,000 iPhone apps and 200,000 Android apps circulating the mobile space, the ratings are meant to provide parents with more context on the appropriateness of apps for kids.
