Chart of the first 12 Playdia titles.

Nearly every title for the Playdia console was published by Bandai. Many took advantage of the CD-ROM format to present full motion video, though with simplistic gameplay.

The first launch titles in 1994 were targeted towards young children. At least 8 promotional discs were given away with the console or in special promotions; some were intended for retailers to demonstrate the console in stores.

The Playdia logo was redesigned in 1995 for titles that targeted older audiences.

Soft sales drove Bandai to introduce releases for older audiences in 1995, which included higher-priced titles focused on Japanese pop idols. Improved sales helped Bandai mitigate initial losses on the platform.[1]
