The Pippin port was released in 1996 by Bandai Digital Entertainment in Japan. A memory module with at least 2MB of RAM must be added to the default console configuration for the game to run. It is considered a spiritual continuation of director Haruhiko Shono's work on L-Zone, which itself was also ported to the Pippin platform.
In 1997, an updated special edition was released as Gadget: Past as Future for PlayStation. It was released as a hybrid disc for Macintosh and Windows in Japan by Synergy Works (シナジーワークス) and internationally in 1998 by Cryo Interactive. However, this version omits puzzle games from the original and replaces spoken dialog with text. An iOS version, titled iGadget HD, was released by NTT Resonant on March 23, 2011.
