TurboGrafx-16, PC Engine Mini joins retro console crowd

TurboGrafx-16, PC Engine Mini joins retro console crowd

Versions of these games may be coming for other regions, but they have yet to be announced. That's just five games for now, but information about pricing and more games are still to come. Konami just announced the TurboGrafx-16 Mini, which marks a return of the 1989 console which debuted in the United States alongside the Sega Genesis. Despite these, however, the system actually ran on an 8-bit CPU.

NEC's TurboGrafx-16 was a competitor to the Nintendo's NES and SNES consoles in the '80s and '90s, as well as the Sega Genesis.

This time, it's NEC / Hudson's legendary PC Engine, the system which took Japan by a storm in the late '80s and came to the USA in the (slightly less successful) form of the TurboGrafx-16.

For those wondering where Konami's involvement comes in, the company merged with Hudson Soft back in 2012.

But the United striker claims the manager knows how he feels. "I am going to enjoy my holidays with my family now". United are said to want to recoup most of the £75million they paid Everton to sign him in 2017.

Its initial product reveal confirms the existence of three different editions according to global region: the TurboGrafx-16 Mini in North America, the PC Engine Core Grafx in Europe (where, in France, the forerunner to modern games giant Ubisoft had managed to secure Japanese imports), and the PC Engine Mini in Japan.

An official website is already available for all three mini-consoles. No release date has been announced as yet. The multi-tap add-on is sold separately.

The new console will be called the TurboGrax-16 mini in North America.

On top of that, the company is making three different versions, to coincide with the three separate iterations of the TurboGrafx16 which was also known as the PC Engine.
