TurboGrafx-16 Mini coming from Konami

Konami is getting into the mini console business with a fan favorite system and an already impressive roster of games.

The developer announced TurboGrafx-16 Mini at E3 along with the first of multiple reveals detailing included software. Price and release date are currently unavailable.

Alien Crush, Dungeon Explorer, New Adventure Island, Ninja Spirit and R Type are TurboGrafx-16 Mini’s first six games, with the product’s website promising more title announcements at a steady pace.

The original TurboGrafx was released in the United States in 1989 by Japanese IT Company NTC. It licensed the technology for TurboGrafx from game company Hudson, which was absorbed by Konami more than 20 years later. That explains why Konami is the entity behind this TG-16 branded venture.

In Japan, the console goes by its colloquial name of PC Engine Mini and looks vastly different than its United States counterpart.
