The Ten no Koe Bank is a device released by Hudson Soft to allow CD-ROM² games to save data.

The Ten no Koe Bank offers 8kB of save data (or 8,000 blocks) - four times the number of the standard CD-ROM² unit, and is prestented in HuCard form, meaning unlike previous storage solutions, it does not need access to the PC Engine's expansion slot.

The Ten no Koe Bank uses a CR2320 "button" battery to retain save data (as opposed to the supercapacitor solution used in CD-ROM² hardware). This has its own disadvantage, however, as the battery cannot be replaced without damaging the HuCard shell.
