It seems that retro gaming consoles will not be going away anytime soon. Konami just announced the TurboGrafx-16 Mini, which marks a return of the 1989 console which debuted in the US alongside the Sega Genesis.
Six games have been announced so far for the system, which will be released in Europe as the PC Engine Core Grafx, and in Japan as the PC Engine Mini. It will come with two USB ports for the game controllers and will also have support for a five-way multiplayer adaptor.
The six games announced for the TurboGrafx-16 Mini are as follows:
- New Adventure Island
- Ninja Spirit
- Ys Book I & II
- Dungeon Explorer
- Alien Crush
Different games have also been announced for the various versions of the system such as how the PC Engine Mini will include games like Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Super Star Soldier, and China Warrior.
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.
