Konami reveals a TurboGrafx-16 Mini is on the way

Konami reveals a TurboGrafx-16 Mini is on the way

Variants of the console will be available in Japan (known as the PC Engine mini) and some parts of Europe (as the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini) as well. The TurboGrafx was the third competitor in the 16-bit console wars-and while it was never as big as the Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis, it had a respectable catalog of hard-to-find exclusives.

The company has also announced the first six games for each territory. The console will come preloaded with an initial handful of retro-like games, including R-Type, New Adventure Island, Ninja Spirit, Ys Book I & II, Dungeon Explorer and Alien Crush.

The TurboGrafx-16 Mini is the American version on the official site.

A release date has yet to be confirmed.

In total, roughly 650 games were released for the PC Engine, with only 121 of those localized and 18 being exclusive to the USA market.

The mini console comes in three variants: the TurboGrafx-16 mini for the U.S., the PC Engine mini for Japan, and the PC Engine CoreGrafx mini for Europe.

The Japanese edition has a somewhat distinct list of announced games thus far, including well-remembered classics like Super Star Soldier, PC Kid (a.k.a. Bonk's Adventure), and Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (later ported to the SNES and Dracula X).
