Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon for WonderSwanFan Translated symbol.png (Japanese: チョコボの不思議なダンジョン for ワンダースワン) is a spin-off game from the Chocobo series developed by Tose and published by Bandai on Bandai WonderSwan in 1999 in Japan. It is part of the first set of the Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon series and a port of the original game, Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon is a roguelike game in which you control the franchise's mascot character Chocobo, that appears in the Final Fantasy series to explore mysterious dungeons.

Plot[edit | edit source]

The main characters, Chocobo, and Moogle Atla visit a village. At that time, a farmer in the village who was cultivating the field accidentally digs up a mysterious amethyst that grows by absorbing desires, and his soul is taken in. At the same time, a mysterious dungeon appeared in the village, and Chocobo dived into a mysterious dungeon to rescue Kamira.

The story is divided into three stages, and later Atla is also incorporated into the amethyst. After clearing the first and second dungeons, the ending will flow and move to the next dungeon, alike to Enix's Torneko's Great Adventure: Mystery Dungeon.

Development[edit | edit source]

On March 4, 1999, Bandai sold the port, with the cooperation of Square, as Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon for WonderSwan, which was released at the same time as the monochrome version of the WonderSwan. On March 23, 2000, about a year after the regular version was released, a limited edition with the yellow Chocobo color WonderSwan body was also released.

This is a portage version of the PlayStation release of Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon, and the composition has not been changed in particular, but due to the performance of the monochrome model, some monsters and events have been changed. Although it is a monochrome machine, the graphics are highly complete and the sound is also based on WonderSwan's stereo output.

Sales[edit | edit source]

Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon on WonderSwan sold 175,678 copies in 1999.[1]
