    Use the following sequence to get into the hidden hacking menu: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A

    **
    As pointed out later in this thread, I did make a glaring mistake with this code, so apologies to everyone who's having trouble using it. the correct sequence is of course: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, II, I :P

    I would love pac-land to be on this mini but that's probably a dream, or even air zonk...the bonk games...

    Yeah, both it and this console's version of Ys 1 and 2 (I guess? Though, to be fair, there have been FAR too many versions of those two games!) are like the only standout reasons to get a Turbografx-16/PC Engine. Otherwise, what you have are ports of arcade games that, honestly, in this day and age of arcade emulators being so easy to setup, really makes one wonder the point of those ports in this day and age outside of nostalgia for those who may have had the rare experience of growing up with these systems while Sega and Nintendo duked it out.

    I love Air Zonk, one of my all time favourite shooters, just so much character and humour. I still play it regularly on my PCE.

    Chances are, like all of the “mini” consoles I buy, this one will never leave its box. But I’d like to see this game included for those who will use it and who perhaps have not had the chance to play it before.

    Mind you, how mini is this thing? My PCE is tiny as it is :D wonder if they’ll do an original design one for the Japanese market? I much prefer that shape, which is why i have one.

    There’s lots of great original games on the PCE, I still play mine a lot. You could probably say the same for any system, emulation wise - why bother with the machine?

    For me though, there’s nothing quite like playing on the original systems. It’s like, why buy vinyl when there’s so many streaming services. There’s certain nuances that are rarely reproduced outside of the good old originals.

    Of course I’m old and I’ve had the advantage of 40 years worth of owning systems, I’m not saying everyone should rush off and invest in the original platforms. But if you can and you have an interest in it, then definitely, yeah.

    I had the console back in the days, had Bonk and Bomberman.

    While I know there is emulator such as magicengine, I am looking to get one of those. Hope for Rondo of Blood and some of SNK fighting titles.

    but it is backward compatible with tg-16/pc engine tho
    and that list for the tg-16 mini is pitiful
    they should have included like 40 games
    no splatterhouse, no bonk or chi no rondo for US , what?
    i would appreciate neutopia ,blazing lasers too

    SG mini with daimakaimura and top 40 pc engine games would be nice

    Sorry, I should have said: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, II, I :D

    Chances are the model they're releasing will be hackable, I'd be surprised if someone doesn't find a way and it's bound to be powerful enough to emulate more even than the SuperGrafX.
    But considering the support (or lack thereof) which the SuperGrafX received and it being the far less well known system, I doubt we'll see a specific SuperGrafX model. They'll have gone with the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine for marketing purposes, it's what most people will recognise. By most people, I do mean people who aren't like us :P

    Rather stick to my original PCengine and SSSD3 ODE with Voultar and FBX mods. Tired of these cash grab mini consoles now.
