A great little handheld games console, the Bandai WonderSwan was the original portable device released in this product range exclusively in Japan.

Released in 1999, the 16-bit central processing unit powered device showed significant advantages over the current market competition. Retailing at a much reduced price and offering a longer battery life than the Nintendo Game Boy and the SNK Neo Geo Pocket, the Bandai Wonderswan also witnessed improvements and upgrades to try to further itself as a genuine contender in the turn of the century handheld market.

During its time in contention with the Nintendo Game Boy and the other big hitters in Japan, the Bandai Wonderswan managed to gain a foothold of as much as 8% of the handheld console sector. Working just as well vertically as horizontally and sporting a catalogue of first party games based on popular Japanese anime making it a perfect fit in the East.

Unfortunately for the console, the release of the Game Boy Advance and its instant popularity contributed greatly to the decline of the Bandai Wonderswan. That's not to say however that this handheld system didn't hold its own during a period of time that was synonymous with portable gaming.
