Bandai WonderSwan Color Consoles
Only released in Japan, the Bandai WonderSwan is a portable games console that was very popular in the country with many original titles such as Klonoa and the original 4 Final Fantasy instalments.
Since its release the WonderSwan received two major revisions. The first being the WonderSwan Color, a colour screen version of the original device. The WonderSwan Color is a very popular console amongst collectors, especially the Limited Edition Final Fantasy and Gundam models.
Powered by a 16-bit central processing unit, the Bandai WonderSwan Color aimed to take advantage of the flaws in its main competitors - the Nintendo Game Boy and SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color handheld consoles. Coming in at much cheaper than the pair, as well as showcasing benefits such as improved battery life, the Wonderswan managed to more than hold its own against the competition. During the height of its popularity, it had an 8% share of the market. On the face of it this may seem insignificant but in reality, it is much more than a lot of people had expected or anticipated.
Featuring first party games based on officially licensed anime, the console was the perfect companion to many popular franchises in Japan.
