Wonderswan Color

The Wonderswan Color is a Handheld game console designed by Bandai. It was released on December 30, 2000 in Japan and is a moderate success.

In Japan, Nintendo only has 90% of the hand-held market - as compared to their virtual 100% in the US - and the Wonderswan color takes 8 of the remaining 10%. It sells for a low 6800 yen or approx. $65.

The original Wonderswan was released in Japan only in 1999. It wasn't color like the latest version and was slightly smaller. The newer model has a much greater battery efficiency; it will last up to 20 hours on one AA battery.
