Namco released a game console in Japan to compete with the Game Boy called the Wonderswan, and I'm thinking about purchasing one so I can get the Klonoa game on it (I'm a big fan of the series). The problem is, it's a Japanese-only console, and while I've found some sellers on eBay, I want to know as much as I can about the console. If anyone could answer a few questions for me, I would be eternally grateful.
1.) Is the console battery-operated, or does it have a rechargeable battery?
2.) Say I bought it and charged it/put batteries into it and popped a game in for the first time. What do I have to get through (menu, name input, etc.) before I can actually play the game? How much of it would I have to go through the next time I turn it on?
3.) Are there any known hardware issues for the console (i.e., is it prone to breaking or something of the sort)?
4.) What are the advantages of getting the Wonderswan Crystal over the Wonderswan Color?
The games are not an issue, I'm in the process of downloading the ROMs to see which ones I'd want to buy.
Welcome to the forum Spyke!
As the above poster said there is no startup screen, it goes straight to game like a gameboy.
Dont know of any hardware issues. Ive had mine a while and it still works fine.
The swan crystal has a clearer screen, however you typically have to pay about £80 for a mint boxed one on Ebay. You might want to wait for an auction.
If you are looking for a copy of Klonoa im pretty sure GenkiGames.com has a copy in stock for a relatively affordable price. If you need any suggestions for other games id be happy to point you in the right direction. Its a great little system and i hope you enjoy it!
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!
