Bandai NAMCO announced in 2018 that four of their Nintendo 3DS Tamagotchi titles would be delisted from the eShop in Japan on September 28th, 2018. The titles include:
- Cho~ricchi! Tamagotchi no Puchi Puchi Omisecchi de Violin Lesson
- Tamagotchi no Doki Doki Dream Omisecchi
- Tamagotchi! Seishun no Dream School
- Guruguru Tamagotchi!
As with many licensed titles from Bandai NAMCO, the delisting was most likely caused by expired licensing. While Bandai does own the Tamagotchi property, creating and releasing games based on it through the Bandai NAMCO Games division likely still requires licensing. After years of availability, the cost to renew or relicense these releases likely outweighed any potential sales further adding to the decision to delist them.
Each of the titles remains available on physical media except for Violin Lesson which was a digital eShop exclusive and is considered Extinct.
