TurboGrafx-16 Mini To Launch In March

For those of you looking forward to your next beloved childhood system being remade… look somewhere else. With popular systems like the Genesis, Super Nintendo, and NES already taken care of, we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel. Thus, the TurboGrafx-16 Mini has been announced by Konami.

Originally released in Japan in 1987, the TurboGrafx-16 sold well in Japan before bombing in America in 1989. The system sold poorly, which was mostly blamed on bad marketing. The TurboGrafx-16, which was called the PC Engine in Japan, will now be remade in mini form and launching this March.

The system had many games that were never localized in North America, and that will be reflected in the Mini version. The system will come with libraries of both the Japanese and American models, although the games within will not be localized or updated. So if you really want to play the Japanese version of Snatcher, then this is the system for you. The TurboGrafx-16 Mini launches on March 19th for $100.00.
