    I found one of these rare beauties on Amazon-A Final Fantasy Edition WonderSwan color(the only real FF thing about it is the sillouhette of The Warrior of light on the top corner of the handheld, as well as the system being white) It came with two Digimon games(which I dont really care for but are still kind of neat). I was Happy I was able to grab one..next on my list is a neo geo color handheld! [​IMG]

    Good find. That's a solid system. I own a Wonder Swan and a Wonder Swan Color, but I am unable to get a Crystal for less than $200.

    I've also been trying ot find a wonderlinker for years now. Those things are exceedingly rare.

    If you should happen to find one, that would warrant a 'high five'.

    Aww man, great find!

    The Wonderswan is one of those systems that I thought only stuffy collector-types had these days, hoarding them so the rest of the world can't learn about them. So getting your hands on one is awesome!
