Pippin @World & Atmark Wiki

Pippin Title CD-ROM Catalog, bundled with Atmark consoles.

Pippin titles released for the Pippin Atmark in Japan and for the Pippin @WORLD in the United States are generally compatible with one another, differing primarily in language support. Though many of the following CD-ROMs were promoted by Bandai,[1][2][3] not all of them may have actually been released in their respective markets (noted with * asterisks).[4][5]


Action Designer: Ultraman Tiga is one of the few hybrid Pippin titles to also support Macintosh and Windows.

All authenticated software titles that were released in Japan feature the square Pippin platform logo. Some were published on hybrid discs with support for other platforms that were identified on the box cover and/or a sticker on the jewelcase. Japanese character support was provided through KanjiTalk.[1]

A 6-pack of CD-ROMs bundled with the Pippin Atmark console.

Titles bundled with Pippin Atmark consoles in Japan were assigned a Bandai product ID that began with "BDB-", followed by a 3-digit number. Titles published directly by Bandai or Bandai Digital Entertainment were assigned an ID that began with "BDE-", followed by a 5-digit number. This number corresponded with the five latter digits from the product's UPC bar code, not including the final check digit. Titles from other publishers that were authorized or distributed by Bandai were usually assigned an ID that began with "BDS-", followed by a 5-digit number. A few exceptions to this numbering system included specialty titles such as PEASE. Some titles that were re-released in different packaging were assigned a new ID number.[6]

United States[]

CD-ROM titles promoted for the @WORLD console.

Most authorized U.S. releases were branded with both the square Pippin logo and the @WORLD logo in blue packaging. These discs are especially rare as far fewer Pippin @WORLD consoles were sold than their Japanese counterparts. Though some (but not all) of the applications could be launched on a Power Macintosh computer, none were advertised as offering hybrid support.[3]

Titles released by Bandai Digital Entertainment for @WORLD consoles in the United States were assigned a 5-digit ID number which corresponded with five of the latter digits from the product's UPC bar code, not including the final check digit. This 5-digit number was often followed by a letter (usually C for discs, F for exterior packaging).

Unofficial titles[]

Authenticated releases from a source other than Apple, Bandai, Katz Media, or other official licensee are rare. Early demo discs that have surfaced were likely authenticated by a first-party insider, though more are expected to appear since Pippin authentication was cracked in 2019.[7]

A Katz Pippin Demo CD being loaded into a KMP 2000.

European releases from Katz Media are extremely rare, as not many Katz Media Player 2000 consoles are known to have reached the public. Discs for the KMP 2000 do not require authentication and may not bear official Pippin platform markings. As a result, such titles may not run on consumer Pippin models in Japan nor the United States without developer ROMs.[8] Katz Media stated that it had acquired publishing rights to about 40-50 CD-ROM titles,[9] of which only 4 to 5 were being developed for the Pippin platform due to costs involved.[10]

Software Development Kits[]

The first Pippin SDK CD.

Apple Computer issued Software Development Kit (SDK) CD-ROMs to selected developers to create titles for the Pippin platform. The included APIs and extensions were based on the Macintosh operating system.[11]
