TurboGrafx-16 / PC Engine Mini Announced
« on: June 12, 2019, 19:15:45 PM »
Very cool surprise announcement out of E3 this year! Konami, who I didn't even realize owned the rights to NEC, is giving us another mini console.



Not a lot of info yet but very exciting news.

I never had a TG-16, so I'm quite interested.

Thought I'd share this video that looks at the game line up for the console...

Cool, I hadn't seen the list yet. A few poor choices but overall pretty good. Nice that the Japanese games are included too but Snatcher, like he mentioned, and a couple others won't be playable because of the language.

Looks like it may be about $100 also.  Not the cheapest system from all these "mini" systems that are being released but looks like it may be worthwhile.

Looks like an interesting list of games.  I never owned a TG-16 so I may get this.

I've played a clutch of PCE games released on the Wii VC and the better ones really are very good. This would have been an amazing console to own when it was contemporary.

I see some of the ones I played are on this so if the quality of those is representative then it's worth a pick up.

I really like the games, but the design of the console, don’t know, perhaps it’s only me, but in my opinion it’s, well, not ugly but far away from nice.
