TurboGrafx-16, PC Engine Mini joins retro console crowd

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

It seems that retro gaming consoles will not be going away anytime soon. Numerous games on those systems, though, have been re-released in myriad forms for many different platforms over the years. It used an 8-bit CPU along with a 16-bit GPU.

Konami may well have earned the "most surprising announcement of E3" trophy with Tuesday' night's unexpected reveal of the TurboGrafx-16 Mini (known as the PC Engine Mini in Japan and the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini in Europe). There was a quiet market for such contraptions before, but once Nintendo started breaking the bank with its NES and SNES Classics, the field began flooding with competitors.

The original TG-16 was developed by Hudson Soft and NEC, however, in 2002 Konami purchased Hudson and later took over operations in 2012. Release date and price were not announced.

First Konami intends to release the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini in select European countries, which will then be followed by two additional variants in North America and Japan, which will be called TurboGrafx-16 mini and PC Engine mini respectively. But the TurboGrafx-16 Mini will be the only miniconsole of its kind with a multitap, allowing up to five simultaneous players.

It also hosted the first three games in the Bonk or BC Kid caveboy platformers debuted on PC Engine, its Japanese title a play on the console's name, plus a remastered collection of cult role-playing adventure Ys I & II, and an accomplished 1990 reboot of the Bomberman franchise.
