The PC Engine was originally released in Japan in 1989, while the TurboGrafx-16 was released in America in the same year. While the PC Engine performed fairly well in Japan, the TurboGrafx-16 failed to make a big splash in the US against the Sega Genesis.

There is currently no confirmed retail price nor release date announced yet for the gaming system.
