TurboGrafx-16 mini  PC Engine Core Grafx mini  PC Engine mini

Konami gained control of the TurboGrafx/PC Engine brand in 2011 with the purchase of Hudson Soft, which designed the original system in the late '80s (with manufacturing licensed out to NEC). In Japan, it actually outsold the Sega Master System and the Mega Drive.

Nintendo, Sony, and Sega have all made a decision to offer us mini versions of their old consoles with a bunch of the most popular games preloaded. It's a booming market, and even the most niche consoles can get a piece of it.

The TurboGrafx-16 mini will be released in North America, while variants called PC Engine Core Grafx and PC Engine mini will be released in Europe and Japan, respectively. While the console itself will be a palm-sized miniature, the controller will be full-sized.


It also hosted the first three games in the Bonk or BC Kid caveboy platformers debuted on PC Engine, its Japanese title a play on the console's name, plus a remastered collection of cult role-playing adventure Ys I & II, and an accomplished 1990 reboot of the Bomberman franchise. One of the oddities is that Bonk's Adventure was only announced for the Japanese edition at this time. 6 games have been announced for the console, with a promise of more to come at a later date.

"The original [TurboGrafx-16] consoles were well-known for introducing several historical firsts, including the first console with a CD-ROM add-on and the first console to offer multi-tap support for up to five players", the press release from Konami states.

Fans of the Turbografx-16 were in for a nice surprise today as Konami announced that it will be releasing the Turbografx-16 Mini.
