Many Pippin titles were not released, despite having been announced or developed for the Pippin Atmark in Japan, or the Pippin @WORLD in the United States. Bandai CEO Makoto Yamashina (山科誠) had originally expected to launch about 200 CD-ROM titles for Pippin consoles, with an emphasis on teaching and learning. 128 titles had been announced in marketing brochures that promoted the unveiling of the Atmark at Macworld Expo Tokyo in February 1996.
Bandai abandoned the Pippin platform on March 13, 1998, less than two years after its market debut. Some finished titles were released on other platforms such as Macintosh, while others were cancelled outright for various reasons. A few difficult to track projects were left with uncertain fates.
Titles released on other platforms
The following titles were listed on Bandai Digital Entertainment's Japanese or American websites or marketing materials until the Pippin platform was officially withdrawn. Though these were shipped for other platforms, their release statuses for Pippin consoles are uncertain.
