Pippin Title CD-ROM Catalog (Pippin タイトル CD-ROM カタログ) vol.1 is a digital catalog of CD-ROM titles for Pippin Atmark consoles in Japan.[1] Only the first volume was ever published.


In a January 1996 newsletter, Apple notified developers that Bandai Digital Entertainment would show the Pippin console, still tentatively called the Pippin Power Player, at Macworld Expo Tokyo '96. Developers were requested to fill out a Pippin title description form to have their software titles included in a CD-ROM tentatively called the "Pippin Title catalog".[2]


The catalog was released on March 28, 1996 by Bandai Digital Entertainment with the launch of the Pippin Atmark console. The disc was bundled with each console sold in Japan.[3][4]


The disc contains an app that was authored with Macromedia Director and presents 85 Pippin titles that had been announced by Bandai at the time. The individual listings are organized by genre and include a screenshot or sample video clip, but no interactive demos. Though not specifically identified as being Mac-compatible, the disc contents can be viewed on a Macintosh computer with Japanese WorldScript or KanjiTalk support.

With the early demise of the platform and closure of Bandai Digital Entertainment on March 13, 1998,[5] many of the listed titles never became available for Pippin consoles.[6]

Listed titlesEdit

Only 45 of the 85 titles (noted in green) are confirmed to have been released for the Pippin platform. 26 were released for another desktop platform, such as Mac or PC. Several were also released for other consoles, with 1 being only released on other consoles. 13 titles (noted in red) are not known to have been released.
