Bandai WonderSwan

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


The WonderSwan is a portable game console released and made in 1999 by Bandai. It was released only in Japan and had moderate success, with famed series like Final Fantasy, Rockman/Megaman, Gundam and Digimon having their games released for the console. There were two revisions made in later years, the WonderSwan Color (2000), which added a color screen and improved hardware, and the SwanCrystal (2002), a larger version of the former.
