There is one more miniature console for the collection of old school players, highlighting the nostalgia for the rediscovery of classic video games. This is the TurboGrafx-16 Mini that in Japan will gain the name of PC Engine Mini and in Europe as PC Engine Core Grafx. The console will have two USB ports for the controllers, but will support an adapter for five commands.
For now, only six titles have been revealed for the small platform, including R-Type, New Adventure Island, Ninja Spirit, Ys Book I & II, Dungeon Explorer and Alien Crush. The alignment may change by region, and in the case of Japan, the console will receive Dracula X: Rondo of Blood, from the Castlevania series.
The first version of the console, PC Engine, was released in Japan in 1987, where it was successful, being renamed to the American market as TurboGrafx-16 in 1989, but far from the success of the original. Konami was one of the publishers that most contributed to the success of the console on Japanese soil, and the acquisition of Hudson, which designed the original platform (manufactured by NEC), gives it the rights to the hardware estate.
Konami will release more information on the TurboGrafx-16 Mini in the coming months, including the price, release date and more titles that will accompany its release. SEGA has also planned for this year the Mega Drive Mini, with an alignment of 42 classic titles.
