Logo descriptions by SnowflakesOmega

1st Logo

(1980's-)

Logo: Just a still Bandai logo, mostly on a black background.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Mostly none.

Availability: Seen on most games made by the company.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

(1994-1996)

Nicknames: "Surprise Bandai", "The Playdia Logo"

Logo: On a white background, a CGI Bandai logo comes out falling on the screen. It jumps one time and stretches itself. After getting back to the floor, the Bandai logo runs to the screen, and as the background dims the logo zooms back to the center and goes 2D. The background lights up as this happens.

FX/SFX: CGI animation, taking a spotlight of the Playdia's FMV capabilities.

Music/Sounds: A weird bouncy theme, with the sounds of kids laughing later and then an orchestra hit.

Availability: Seen whenever you start playing a game on the Bandai Playdia. This console was only sold in Japan and sold a few copies due to it's specialized anime/edutainment games.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo

(Mid 90's-Early 2000's)

Logo: On a black background the Bandai letters zoom out with a blue light trail. The whole Bandai logo with red square appears far away at the center and jumps into the screen, getting closer until it stops.

FX/SFX: The zooming out and jumping effects.

Music/Sounds:A loud laser-like sound, followed by a ascending warbling synth.

Music/Sounds Variant: SD Gundam G Century had just a beam charging sound after a few seconds of silence.

Availability: Seen on PSX games by the company.
