The Datach (データック?) or Datach Joint ROM System, was an add-on accessory by Bandai for the Family Computer (the Japanese version of Nintendo Entertainment System) and was released on December 29, 1992, and was packaged with one game, Dragon Ball Z: Gekitō Tenkaichi Budokai. It had six other games that were also released for it, including one of the last games for the Famicom system in 1994. It is one of two mini systems compatible with the NES/Famicom, the other being the Aladdin Deck Enhancer.
The Datach consists of cartridge connection at its bottom, a central cartridge chamber on its back, with two spring loaded pins on either side, which are pushed up when the unit is inserted into the Famicom, allowing the game to only be removed when the Datach has been removed from the Famicom. Its main feature is the card reading slot on the front. The cartridges resemble nearly half-size Famicom cartridges. One side of the cartridge is flat with title sticker, while the other side is slopped inward with one notch on the left and another on the right, which correspond to the spring pins on the main Datach unit. The cards that come with the games are swiped from left to right along the card slop. They are glossy on the front with an image of the character and the backs are smooth usually having the title of the game and barcode. All cartridges, boxes, instructions have the standard FF (Famicom Family) insignia, showing they were officially licensed by Nintendo and part of the Family Computer games.
In total seven games were made for the Datach. The first was packaged with the Datach system itself and the remaining ones were released in their own separate packaging with barcoded cards.
