{{Bandai}}'s entrant into the handheld console market which never received a release in the United States. In style, it looks like somebody crossed an iMac of the era (Bondi Blue!) with a GameBoy. It came in a multitude of colors, and eventually got an upgrade with the [=WonderSwan=] Color and another upgrade with the [=SwanCrystal=].

The system was the brainchild of GunpeiYokoi, father of the Game Boy, who was unhappy with being KickedUpstairs at the [[Creator/{{Nintendo}} Big N]] after the failure of VirtualBoy (which was the company's fault for making him release it early) and accordingly left for their main competitor. Unfortunately, after Yokoi's untimely death in a car crash, the project kinda lost momentum...at a point when Nintendo was releasing the GameBoyAdvance, which eclipsed the [=WonderSwan=] family quite quickly and in the end Yokoi's last creation [[NoExportForYou never reached western shores]].

The system gave Nintendo the first thing like a challenge in Japan's portable market indeed, it's believed that the success of the [=WonderSwan=] (Color) gave the Big N just enough of a nudge to release the GameBoyAdvance so quickly on the heels of the Game Boy Color.
