The popular '90s handheld digital pet Tamagotchi is making a comeback.

The company Bandai America made the announcement that they are releasing the Tamagotchi On, which is a bigger version of the original 1997 version.

The new Tamagotchi will also be a full-color version. The older version only came in black-and-white.

The newer version, Bandai says, will also allow users to connect with other Tamagotchi On's and go on play dates, give gifts, travel together and even marry each other.

Each device will be sold separately for $59.99.

The virtual reality pet will come in two styles, Fairies and Magic, which will have their own unique characters and land.

The toy will be sold nationwide starting on July 28.
