The WonderSwan is not an obscure console by any mean. With more than 3.5 million units sold of the different iterations of the console, the console is well know by the collector and the retro-gaming community. Since there’s already ton of very good information out there (ex: Swan of Wonders), I decided instead to focus on the more obscure part of this consoles. As mentioned, the console had many iterations, variation but the console also have a lots of obscure peripherals and prototypes. Someday, I’ll probably make a proper history section, but for the moment, here’s the references to the different articles within this site on the peripherals and prototypes:
