From 2004 until 2011 Bandai released games for each season of Pretty Cure for Sega's Pico[1] and Beena[2] kids' consoles.

Consoles and Storyware

The games for these consoles consisted of the software on a cartridge, with an attached picture book, together called 'storyware'. The console's touch pen, drawing surface and buttons were used to interact with the software. The Pico and Beena didn't have built in screens, but connected to a TV for display. Instead of using on-screen menus, the player made selections by turning pages and touching the page with the touch pen. Mini-games were played with the buttons, or by using the pen on the drawing surface. The Sega Pico was made from 1993 to 2005, the Sega Beena from 2005 to 2011. Because the Pico had been made for more than ten years by the time the Beena was introduced, the Beena was at first marketed as "Advanced Pico Beena". An SD card reader attachment for the Beena was introduced later.

List of Pretty Cure Storyware

The first season's storyware was released for the Pico, all later seasons' storyware were for the Beena, with the Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart game being one of the Beena's launch titles. From the Yes! Pretty Cure 5 storyware on, all games supported the optional SD card reader for storing drawings or game progress, with the exception of the last, Suite Pretty Cure one. The Fresh Pretty Cure, HeartCatch Pretty Cure, and Suite Pretty Cure games were also sold bundled as full Beena + game sets.
