The Tamagotchi M!X (Tamagotchi Mix) was released July 16, 2016 in Japan. It features a new way of obtaining characters in which you can mix the genetics of the parents to create seemingly endless combinations of characters.
This version also gets rid of the icon bars around the screen, allowing for a larger view. The menu can be accessed by pressing the A button on the character screen.
Disclaimer: Most of this guide is comprised of information I have translated myself such as the menus and how to play. The information pertaining to events, location unlocks, likes/dislikes, etc. have been collected within the Tamagotchi groups on Facebook as well as Tama-Zone.com.
Startup When you startup your Tamagotchi Mix, you will need to set the date and time. Use the A button to select the appropriate number, and use the B button to confirm.
Then you will be prompted to enter your birthdate starting with the month. Once again, use the A button to select the proper number, then hit B to confirm.
The next screen you will need to put in your name. Use the B button to select the letter slot you want to set. Use the A button to move forward in the letter slots. Use C to go back. Once you hit B, cycle through the available alphabets using the A button, select the alphabet you want using the B button, cycle through the letters using A, then select the letter you want using B. Once you have entered the name you want, use the A button to go past the end of the letter slots.
You will see an egg bouncing on the screen. After 1 minute, the egg will hatch, and you will see if your Tama is a boy or girl. It will need immediate care.
Status The status icon will allow you to see how your Tama is doing.
Condition The first screen will display the name you entered on startup followed by the name of the current Tamagotchi character you have and the gender. The second screen shows the happiness meter followed by the stomach meter, generation number, age in Tama years, and the amount of Gotchi points you have.
Settings This section allows you to change the settings of you Mix. Time lets you change the time. If you go to this screen, and do not confirm the new time, this is a pause function. The brightness setting allows you to change how bright the backlighting of the screen is. Setting this lower can save battery life. The sound setting allows you to turn the sound on and off. The icons background setting allows you to change the background of the icons screen.
Rice * Snack The rice * snack menu lets you feed your Tama. The first option feeds your Tama from the refrigerator at home. As a baby you can feed your Tama a bottle as its meal. Once it turns into a toddler, it will change the option into a rice ball. The second default option is the snack. An icon of a bowl of rice in the top-right corner means that the food is considered a meal. A piece of wrapped candy in the top-right corner means that the food is considered a snack. You can purchase more meals and snacks from different Tama Depas.
The second option will send your Tama to the Tamagotchi Restaurant. Babies cannot go to the restaurant.
Toilet * Bath The toilet * bath icon allows you to clean up your Tama. The toilet option will either clean up poop that your Tama has left on the floor, or if you catch it doing the "poop wiggle", you can run the Tama to the toilet to poop there.
The bath option will clean your Tama when it turns brown from being dirty.
Connect The connect screen will allow you to connect Tamagotchi Mixes together, download items, and connect to the Mix website. The download options and website are not available quite yet. I will update this guide when they are.
Tamagotchi M!X This option lets you connect two Mixes together. The options from top to bottom are play, fortune-telling, item exchange, and propose.
To connect two Mixes, go to the Tamagotchi M!X option under Connect on both Tamagotchis. Select the option that you want the Tamas to do. When the pink connection hearts appear on the screen, make sure the IR ports are aligned, then hit the B button on one of the Tamas. A progress bar will appear. Do not separate the Tamas or let anything get inbetween the IR ports until the progress bar is finished.
The play option will have your Tamas play a game together. The fortune-telling option will send your Tamas to the psychic to have their fortune told. The item exchange option lets you send items from one Tama to another as a gift.
The propose option is only usable when your Tamas are adults. You will need to purchase a ring from Tama Depa. There is a cheap one, and an expensive one. The more you spend on a ring, the more likely your betrothed will be to accept.
Download The download option will allow your Tama to accept IR files from an IR device. These files will add on extra content for your Tama. These have not been released by Bandai just yet. Please check back later.
PC This option will let you connect your Tama to a Bandai website for additional online play at http://mix.tamatv.com. You can play a mini game to earn Gotchi points, then the points can be transferred to your Tama via this option. Unfortunately, this will require basic knowledge of hiragana and katakana.
Out to Town Out to town let's your Tama leave the house.
Tama Depa At tama depa, your Tama can purchase wallpapers, items, accessories, and jewelry. You can also visit the Game Center to play games to earn happiness and gotchi points.
The first option is the Renovation store. This is where you can buy new wallpapers for your living room.
The second option is a list of items that you can buy.
The third option is the accessories available for sale that your Tama can wear as an adult.
The last option is where your Tama can buy jewelry. This is where your Tama can get the rings for marriage proposal.
Game Corner The Game Corner is where your Tama can play games to earn happiness and gotchi points.
The rainbow paint game requires you to repaint a rainbow. It will display a rainbow. Different color stripes in the rainbow will become transparent. You will need to use the paint brush and buckets to get the correct color on your brush to repaint that stripe. The colors of the rainbow from top to botton are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. If you wait too long to select the paint color, the rainbow will start to fade. Quickly make the correct selection before the game is lost. The list below shows what buckets to choose to repaint each stripe. Successfully paint 10 stripes without missing any to get a perfect score.
Red - Select red twice
Orange - Select red and yellow
Yellow - Select yellow twice
Green - Select yellow and blue
Blue - Select blue twice
Purple - Select blue and red
The star catch game is pretty simple. Stars and UFOs will fall from the sky. You will want to catch the stars, but avoid the space ships. Wait until your tama places its basket just below a star, and it prompts you to hit a button. Do not hit the button if your tama tries to catch a UFO. Successfully catch 10 stars and no UFOs to get a perfect score.
Park At the park, you can have a conversation with someone at the square, or you drop your Tama off at the playroom. The playroom is a way to have your tama taken care of while you are busy with work or school. They will play with other Tamas while you are busy, and won't fill the house with poop!
Out to TamaTomo Out to TamaTomo will take you to destinations by bus. This includes the unlockable destinations. A unique feature of visiting locations via bus is that you can select one of your toys to take along with you. When you select a destination, it will ask you if you would like to take a toy with you. The top option is yes. The bottom option is no. If you select yes, it will give you a list of your toys. Select one, and your bus will take off to its destination.
TamaTown The Out to Town option let's you visit the local village by your house. TamaTown is the main city of the Tamagotchi world. You can visit the town square, the head TamaDepa store which has more items than your local TamaDepa, the Gene Lab, and make a proposal to a character in this location.
If you take a toy with you, you use it to play with another tama visiting the square.
Diary The diary keeps track of TamaTomos, the friends your Tama makes, and any commemorative photos.
TamaTomo List This is a list of the Tamagotchi characters that you have met at different locations.
Friends Notebook This notebook keeps track of the friends your Tama has made, and displays on the left what level their friendship is at. It starts at blue, then as the friendship deepens, it will transition to red. You will receive 300 gotchi points for hitting the lover (orange) and passionate lover (red) milestones. Your tama will at least need a red rating as an adult to have a successful proposal. The characters in the different unlockable locations can be spouses. Travel to those destinations with the ring to propose, then select the propose option. See the list below to see what each color means.
Blue - Aquaintance
Green - Friend
Orange - Lover
Red - Passionate Lover
If you hit the B button when looking at a friend's profile, it will take you to another menu for options with that particular friend. The first option is to view their family photo. The second
Commemorative Photo When your Tama becomes friends with others, they will sometimes take a photo together. These photos will be stored in this option. You can delete a photo by pressing B while viewing it, and then selecting the top option (yes). To cancel, select the bottom option (no).
Proposing There is no matchmaker in the Tamagotchi Mix. There are certain characters in each location (i.e. TamaTown, Patchi Forest, Flower Hills, etc.) that can be a spouse to your Tama. You will need to continually visit the location of the character you want your Tama to marry, and raise the relationship between them. If you take the potential spouses favorite item to play with, it will greatly increase the amount of friendship you build with them.
You can check the relationship level in the Friends Notebook. Once you become a passionate lover (red) with the potential spouse as an adult, buy a ring from TamaDepa, then select propose for the location of your character of choice. You will be shown a list of potential spouses at that location. Press A to cycle through the choices. Press B to select the character to propose to. Your proposal may not be accepted the first time. You might need to try a few times if your friendship level isn't high enough.
If the potential spouse accepts, then fireworks go off, and they produce a new Tama egg. The new generation will stay with its parents until it becomes a toddler. You will still need to care for it during the baby stage.
You can also be super lazy like me, and continue visiting the potential spouse after getting the passionate lover level until they propose to you. Then you will get a list of options in this order: Yes, No, Let me think about it. Giving a flat no will mean that character will stop proposing to you. Yes will obviously begin the marriage process. Saying Let me think about it will keep your tama from getting married, but the proposer will continue to ask you when you visit.
