My list of "playable",for non japanese speakers,Wonderswan games

Recommended Posts

it's not anything great,just a quick list that i made some time ago to help me with the wonderswan collecting.

but first some comments
-[u]it's based on no more than 5-min sessions of all available roms/games so minor or major mistakes are to be expected :( [/u]
-[u]most of the games have japanese menus[/u]
-also included games that are playable to a point (action-rpgs,action-adventures etc)
-some games have additional notes in parenthesis
-in this list you won't find all of the mahjong games,i have included 2 out of 5-6 that were released

without further ado...
my list ;-)

This is the most complete list that I have seen on the net. I have a lot of those games. Love the little portable. It is worth having just for One Piece - Grand Battle Swan Colloseum! Like the fighters on this portable.

one piece-gbsc is great indeed ! quite good also are the two digimon battle spirit games ...too bad that the main attractions of the unit,the rpgs,are essentially unplayable :(

I agree about those RPGs. I wished that they had been translated into English, or at least had the in-game option. I did play one of the FF games one time by simultaneously playing the same game that was ported to GBA.

i think that translated roms for two games exist (unlimited saga and one that i don't remember right now) but it's nothing compared to the number of rpgs that were released...

I have Golden Axe and Gunpey Ex on the system (as well as Final Fantasy I, which I barely touched)... Gunpey is a very cool little puzzle game. The one Wonderswan game I wish I had is Tetris. I tried to bid on one a few times on Ebay but it never worked out.

I also have Rockman & Forte and Makaimura, but the B&W games give me a headache. I'm glad there are many other games that a non-Japanese player can enjoy. I'll have to check some of these out. Thanks!

Great list (best one i've found as well) for a really underrated handheld.
i traded a NGPC--DC link cable for a SwanCrystal & games but never really got around to exploring the WS library until I picked up a regular ole b&w WonderSwan. I'd read around that the Cystal was better and the WS wasn't nearly as good as the Crytsal because of ghosting & whatnot, but.... i kinda like the b&w WS [i][b]better[/b][/i], i think because of the contrast dial. (Reminds me, I gotta get a WSC...)
So if you've never tried a WS and you want to but aren't sure if you should get an inexpensive WS or wait and save up to get a Crystal, the b&w WonderSwans [i]are[/i] pretty sweet are worth getting now.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the list :)

B&W Wonderswans are dirt cheap, too. I think my last one was something like $25 after shipping from Japan, complete with the box and instructions. That was sometime in the last year or so.

$25 & under (shipped) is the going rate now. You can pick up a WS for $10-12 + $8 shipping from Japan on eBay (Buy It Now prices), tho you can snag one for cheaper if you keep your eye out for auctions. I lucked out a few months ago and got a nice b&w blue WS with One On (golf game) for $12 shipped from Canada.

[b]40hrs [/b]on [i]ONE [/i]AA battery??? I keep one in my car in case of a break down and I plan on getting another for my hurricane kit. Yeah, not knowing kanji (katana?) [i]does [/i]limit your options but there are still quite a few great games you can play, and it's just a really cool lil handheld. (Maybe i should throw a Kanji for Beginners book in my hurricane kit as well...) Edited by Smatchmo

Got my Wonderswan Color (that I had front light modded by [url="http://rosecoloredgaming.wordpress.com/"]http://rosecoloredgaming.wordpress.com/[/url]) last week and can't put it down! Been playing Final Fantasy I (played it on so many times on nes/gba that I barely notice its JP). Heres a tip for collecting the games check [url="http://global.rakuten.com/en/"]http://global.rakuten.com/en/[/url] also got a ton of famicom games from here for good prices. The only down side is the lack of a headphone jack. There are adapters for it but they are 2 to 3 times the cost of the wonderswan itself lol. To our electronic talented members of AA maybe someone can take a crack at making some cause anyone who owns a wonderswan would want one =D
