The Ten no Koe 2 (天の声2) is a device released by Hudson Soft to allow PC Engine HuCard games to save data. There was never a "Ten no Koe 1" - the "2" indicates that the device has 2kB of storage space. The name Ten no Koe (lit. "Voice From The Heavens") is a reference to the password system used in Hudson Soft's Famicom game Momotarou Densetsu, which was ported to the PC Engine under the title Momotarou Densetsu Turbo.
The Ten no Koe 2 plugs into the rear of a PC Engine and is powered by two AA batteries (which are used to keep the save data alive). If the batteries are running low, a red LED will glow - save data will be kept as long as the user replaces the batteries "quickly".
This system was replaced in 1991 by the more convenient Ten no Koe Bank solution.
