|Crayon Shin-Chan: Orato Poi Poi|
Crayon Shin-Chan: Orato Poi Poi (クレヨンしんちゃん オラとポイポイ?) was released on August 27, 1993 for both the Famicom and Datach Joint ROM System. It stars the famous Japanese character Crayon Shin-chan. Crayon Shin-chan is a Japanese manga and anime series. The series follows the antics of five-year-old Shinnosuke Nohara and his parents, neighbors, friends, dog and many others. The series is called "Crayon Shin-chan" because "crayon" signifies the fact that Shin-chan goes to kindergarten, and that the unique coloration makes it appear as if the characters are drawn with crayons. "Shin-chan" is the affectionate name for the main character.
The game was also released for the Bandai Datach Joint ROM system, a piece of hardware that is plugged into the NES itself and then the cartridges get inserted into that system instead. The cartridge is different and it can only be used in the barcode reader, but it doesn't actually use the reader thus does not add anything more to the game than the standard version. In other words, both games are identical. The Datach version was most likely only released to promote the hardware at the time.
