Namco Bandai has announced the development of a third title in the Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop series. Scheduled for release in the summer, Corner Shop 3 will feature 13 brand-new shops to run and expand, a new park to design and visit, and the ability to trade journals with friends wirelessly.

New stores include the Bakery, Event Coordinator and the Ice Cream Parlour, each upgradeable to offer new items to demanding customers. Helping players are new characters Violetchi, Mametchi, Kuchipatchi and Memetchi.

Once a long day at work is over players will be able to relax in their user-created park, complete with fountains, gardens and other items to be discovered in the game. Wi-Fi Connection will also enable players to connect wirelessly to friends, sharing items and swapping journal entries.

Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 3 is scheduled for release in the summer for Nintendo DS.
