The console is small enough to fit into gamers' palms but comes with a full-size controller, the Japanese game giant (Konami) said Tuesday at the E3 game expo in Los Angeles. 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
Alien Crush

Such a massive regret I never grew up playing the TurboGrafx PC Engine. I knew about it when I was a kid but nobody in my school had one and playing it now as a adult I know I would've loved this console the most.

Looks like a lazy attempt. Half the games will be in Japanese, a few of the games will be doubled up due to releasing in the west and Japan.

Also why they have chosen to release it in March 2020 and not for Christmas 2019 is beyond me.

It's basically a Konami mini box. They have done no deals with third party publishers it's just all their own games and what they bought from Hudson.

Konami are being that lazy with this product that they are putting Japanese rpg's with Japanese only text in the western release :-jack In what world would you ever do that??

It is up for preorder on Amazon UK but the crappy Coregrafx black/blue version

www.amazon.co.uk/Konami-Bethesda201985-Engine-CoreGrafx-Mini/dp/B07SLM7N9J/

I'm confused, are we going to be able to purchase the white pc engine version in the UK?

Also the product page says 40 games not 50 :-think

Preloaded with 40 games! 20 PC Engine games (Japanese versions) + 20 TurboGrafx-16 games (English versions). Some titles are included in both the Japanese and English lineups. Some English games are localizations of Japanese titles.

Hori make the white turbo tap and white controller. I emailed them and asked why they were selling the turbo tap and controller in white alongside the turbografx16 and coregrafx mini's

They replied

You can pre-order both the CoreGrafx and PC Engine versions from Amazon.co.jp so maybe it is not region specific. Maybe Amazon UK will eventually put up all three designs :-dunno

You have to be a Japanese Prime member to preorder and I'm only a Prime member in the UK. Certainly won't be paying to be a Prime member of Amazon Japan :-lol even if they allowed me to.

There were just so many variants, colours, name changes of the turbografx and pc engine it was even confusing back then. It seems Konami feel the need to continue that tradition :-roll

How hard can this be? why did they not just bring out only one of the variants and localise the games.


Or if you're going to do the three variant options then it needs to be done right

America
TurboGrafx 16
Accessories - black turbo tap, black controllers
Games - Western releases and Japanese releases that were made in English


Europe
CoreGrafx
Accessories - grey turbo tap, grey controllers
Games - Western releases and Japanese releases that were made in English


Japan
PC Engine
Accessories - white turbo tap, white controllers
Games - Japanese releases


Why in Gods name are the white turbo tap and controllers being sold alongside the TurboGrafx 16 mini in America?
