TurboGrafx-16 mini / PC Engine CoreGrafx mini / PC Engine mini announced

OMG it's really happening , and CD-ROM games are also included! This maybe the only product I'd buy from Konami.

Is Core Grafx the version that was released in Europe?

A mini console from Konami.




Konami has announced the TurboGrafx-16 mini (North America) / PC Engine CoreGrafx mini (Europe) / PC Engine mini (Japan), a compact version of the classic 1980s console featuring a range of built-in games. Release date and price were not announced.

Here is an overview of the mini-console, via its official website:

Relive the Thrills and Emotion from Back in the Day

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.

Now, at long last, the TurboGrafx-16 is making a comeback!

It’s set to return in the form of the TurboGrafx-16 mini, a new compact model that comes preloaded with a selection of popular titles!

A Compact Version of a Classic Design

A faithfully scaled-down version of the original TurboGrafx-16 design, right down to the smallest detail. Don’t worry, though–the controllers are still their original size, allowing for exactly the same gameplay experience!

Key Features
  • Save at any time with Quick Save! – The console features a Quick Save function that allows you to save at any point during a game. Save your progress and continue playing when it’s convenient for you!
  • Choose from various display modes! – Not only is the console ready to plug and play using the included HDMI cable, it also features different modes that let you choose how your games look, such as by replicating the scanlines on a CRT TV.
  • Simultaneous five-player gaming with a multitap! – By using a multitap to connect additional controllers, up to five people can play together simultaneously. (Multitap sold separately.)

  • Alien Crush
  • Dungeon Explorer
  • New Adventure Island

This thing will be an instant sale if they decide to include the Tengai Makyo rpg series that they now own and they had some really good arcade ports.

That may happen in the Japanese version, it would be hard to translate the entire game to English if Konami just want to make some quick bucks with it. Not to mention there are three or more Tengai Makyo RPGs for PC-Engine right?

That's correct, there were 3 rpgs on the system and a very lousy fighting game. I don't think it would take that much of a work to translate those games with how agile they can localize stuff nowadays and those were some of the first rpgs on cd format.

But yeah, surely for outside of japan we'll get a very awful list of games unless they again prove me wrong. If it comes to the former then it's up to the modders to rescue the console just how they did it with the ps classic.

Translation is not a problem, but incorporating the text into the game is. Not even sure if Konami still has the complete set of source code of all these classic games. Like Square Enix lost their source code/material for FF8, took them a while to reverse engine the game from some version.

Then they'll have to track down the guys who were in charge that is if they're still alive of course.

I hope they include Rondo of blood on overseas versions, they got no excuse not to since that was localised for psp then on the recent collection.
