The official Digimon website launched their countdown website for the 20th Anniversery for Digital Monster, the virtual pet toy that helped create Digimon. It was released back in 1997, sheesh that’s a long time ago, as the male counterpart to the Tamagotchi. That definetly clarifies the whole Digimon being a knock-off of Pokemon thing. The game consisted of feeding, training, battling, and cleaning for the pet.
The countdown is going to end on January 6th, 2017. There is no details of what’s in store so far, however V-Jump magazine has promised to give some details in their next issue.
