While I am highly against overpriced cosmetic items, the latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare watch is a revelation for the series. The Tamagotchi-inspired virtual pet called the “Tomogunchi” is a parody of the Japanese digital pet watch from the nineties and is now available in Modern Warfare. The wristwatch features a virtual pet that hatches from an egg and comes in different forms including a cat, panda and monster-like creature. As you play through your multiplayer match, the creature will need to be taken care of else it will simply die due to neglect.
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Tomogunchi (Tamagotchi) watch requires just as much attention as the virtual pets back in the day and players need to keep tabs on its food and emotional state in order to evolve it into a different form. Arguably one of the best features of a Tamagotchi from back in the day.
If you think I am joking, I am not. If you wear this in-game you will need to use the d-pad to check the watch while running around the map and killing enemies. The more you kill, the more it feeds off the kills and the faster it evolves. The pet also has its own emotional states including hungry, dirt, unruly, and sleepy. It also helps that the device kind of has the same colour scheme as the classic Nintendo Game Boy.
The whole idea of this Call of Duty Tomogunchi is rather genius as it even has its own fake manufacturer and cool-looking advert. The press release reads like a cheesy Verimark ad too;
