    Konami has announced the TurboGrafx-16 mini (North America), PC Engine CoreGrafx mini (Europe), PC Engine mini (Japan). No release date and price were given yet.
    An official anouncement from Konami reads as follows.

    Relive the Thrills and Emotion from Back in the Day

    Originally released in Japan in 1987 as the TurboGrafx-16 home console captivated gamers with its revolutionary graphics and sound, and still holds a special place in the hearts of fans today.

    Now, at long last, the TurboGrafx-16 is making a comeback!

    It’s set to return in the form of the TurboGrafx-16 mini, a new compact model that comes preloaded with a selection of popular titles!

    A Compact Version of a Classic Design

    A faithfully scaled-down version of the original TurboGrafx-16 design, right down to the smallest detail. Don’t worry, though–the controllers are still their original size, allowing for exactly the same gameplay experience!

    Key Features

    • Save at any time with Quick Save! – The console features a Quick Save function that allows you to save at any point during a game. Save your progress and continue playing when it’s convenient for you!
    • Choose from various display modes! – Not only is the console ready to plug and play using the included HDMI cable, it also features different modes that let you choose how your games look, such as by replicating the scanlines on a CRT TV.
    • Simultaneous five-player gaming with a multitap! – By using a multitap to connect additional controllers, up to five people can play together simultaneously. (Multitap sold separately.)

    All the trailers are basically (and understandably) the same.

    Except the Japanese one. Some peeps yell "KONAMI" at the end of it.

    That's is nice, the PC Engine is very small console.
    A NeoGeo AES cartidge is bigger then the PC Engine.
    But I don't need a mini, I can play all of them on my RetroPie console ;)
