Japanese toy king Bandai Co Ltd has confirmed what had been widely rumoured – that its Mac OS-derived Pippin multimedia CD-ROM games and educational machine – based on a stripped down Macintosh specification, will not ship in Japan until March, arriving in the US after mid-year.

Bandai plans to set up a company to run the Pippin project in Japan.
