Bandai is releasing a set of Neon Genesis Evangelion Tamagotchi on June 13th, 2020. Players will raise a variety of Angels, the unique enemies of the Evangelion universe. There will be Evangelion-themed mini games that players can do to bond with their Angel Tamagotchi. This includes a variety of battle practices where your Angel will avoid enemy threats. In addition, neglecting your Tamagotchi will cause your Angel to make an A.T field around itself. There are three colour types: an EVA-00, EVA-01, and EVA-02 designs, as shown below:
As far as the actual Tamagotchi, players can raise about 20 different Angels. Bandai’s official site for the Tamagotchi also shows a possibility to get the characters Ayanami Rei and Kaworu Nagisa, although Siliconera states that characters will be harder to get.
