Barcode World (バーコードワールド ?) is a video game developed by Epoch and published by Sunsoft. It was released only in Japan on December 18, 1992 for the Nintendo Family Computer. As the title suggests, it's a video game where players use a Barcode Battler II (a card-scanning handheld) together with a Nintendo-licensed Famicom-BarcodeBattler interface that came packaged with the game and not sold separately. A special set of Barcode Battler cards with barcodes imprinted on them were also required to play the game. Barcode World features characters from many Sunsoft series, most notably "Hebereke" and "Gimmick."


  • The Nintendo e-Reader for the Game Boy Advance is considered to be the modern day equivalent of Barcode Battler handheld. The two devices are very similar in that they serve the same purpose: to scan especially designed cards with barcodes imprinted on the scanning devices as the primary means of using the device.
