Konami enters the tiny console business with the TurboGrafx-16 Mini

Konami enters the tiny console business with the TurboGrafx-16 Mini”

Originally released in Japan in 1987 as the TurboGrafx-16 home console captivated gamers with its revolutionary graphics and sound, and still holds a special place in the hearts of fans today. The gaming console is a compact version of the company's 1980s version. 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. Now Konami is doing the same thing for the TurboGrafx-16, a console far fewer of us have played games on before.

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. Numerous games on those systems, though, have been re-released in myriad forms for many different platforms over the years. The Japanese version also has Dungeon Explorer and Ys, but swaps the others for Bonk's Adventure, Dracula X, The Kung Fu/China Warrior, and Super Star Soldier. Release date and price were not announced.

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).
