The remaining seven titles for the TurboGrafx-16 mini have been revealed


The classic/mini throwback video game console craze continues, with Konami joining the fray, with their soon to be released TurboGrafx-16 Mini. After claiming that the TG-16 Mini would include 50 classic titles from both the Japanese PC Engine and western TurboGrafx-16 libraries, Konami surprised fans by further revealing another seven bonus games, bringing the total count to 57. We also have confirmation that M2, known for their work on recent ports of classic Sega Genesis games, is on board with the project, meaning the games will likely be emulated in a reliable manner. The recently announced games are as follows:

  • Seirei Senshi Spriggan
  • Spriggan Mark 2
  • Dragon Spirit
  • Galaga '88
  • The Genji and the Heike Clans
  • The Legend of Valkyrie
  • Splatterhouse
The TurboGrafx-16 Mini is slated for a March 19, 2020 launch, and will be sold exclusively through Amazon. Pre-orders are now open, with the system retailing for $99.99. It should be noted that more than half of the games from the lineup are in Japanese, and will not be translated/localized.

Splatterhouse is pretty much associated with the PC Engine that it's not surprising to see it included. A shame that they're not translating the Japanese titles but they probably lost the source code to make translating easier or don't want to pay extra money to hack together an English patch.

too expensive.
yes, the number of games is nice and everything, but the market to sell this one to is already tiny, the only way to make money with those mini consoles is if everyone gets one. and they won't if it's sold for 100$.

i doubt even the scammers still bother getting these after the disaster that was nintendo rereleasing theirs and the ps1 mini just sucking.

Not just Kung Fu... THE Kung Fu.
I remember some english teachers telling us that "the" was only used to express greatness
In spanish, "the" could mean any article. These articles in spanish has genre.
Fir example...
"The Apple" means "La Manzana" with "The" serving as a female article.
"The Car" means "El Carro" with "The" functioning as a male article.

So "The Kung Fu" could mean "El Kung Fu"
this... in Japanese could be: "No Kung Fu"

In both Spanish and Japanese, nouns has genres.

It's too bad that this compilation is missing:
The Adventures of Mr. Heli

It's such a nice game to play
Also thanks for including the list of games.

Probably end like PS Classic, since it is very niche system that was popular mostly in Japan. But was not bad when released, I played lot of PC-Engine games via emulation, there is some good games, but mostly lot of space shooters, that i not really like.

I didn't ever knew the console existed until I read about the mini version.

I am saving for the Switch mini and the Sega mini so while interesting this isn't exactly at the top of my list.

At least they actually put effort into the emulation, M2 was behind it and not the dirty Sony-using-open-source-emulators for it.

As a Toys R Us kid in Ohio they didn't sell these when I was a wee lad, kinda excited to check it out.
Toys R Us had nothing to do with the story I just wanted to bring them up because I miss them. =[

With the repetitions and Japanese only games, I fear the interest of this system is rather crippled even before release.

Needs more Bonk, and the Japanese only games should get a translation.

But it's not bad, I guess. Just not for me.

Well this thing is way to expensive. Over 100€ and not released in Germany aswell. A controller will be 25€ and the USB hub ( multitab ) is 30€.

Then you will get a freaking raspberry like SOC with some games with a nice case for all that money.
Nah really im fine with retropie and having the same or even better experience.

If you want spend some money better get a recapped PCE/TG16 and a Super SD System 3 and play on real hardware.
Costs more but makes you happy more.
