TurboGrafx-16 Mini Pre-Orders Are Going Live for Prime Day


Konami is expected to open up pre-orders for the TurboGrafx-16 Mini exclusively through Amazon as part of their Prime Day festivities at some point today, July 15th. U.S. residents will get the TurboGrafx-16 console style pictured above, and it will include nearly 50 games that cover the catalog of both the TurboGrafx-16 console and its PC Engine Japanese counterpart.

Specifically, 24 American games and 26 Japanese games are included in their native language, and Konami notes that there is some overlap between the U.S. and Japanese games (Neutopia and Neutopia II for example). So, the number of unique games falls slightly short of 50, but this is still an interesting twist on the mini console formula that we've seen from Nintendo, Sega, and Sony. You can check out the full lineup of games below. Again, pre-orders are expected to go live right here with shipping slated for March 19th. Official pricing details haven't been revealed at the time of writing, though it should be in the $100 range.

On a related note, Sega recently announced the final wave of games for the Genesis Mini console, and it includes some surprises - like two additional games that bring the grand total to 42.

Highlights from the final 12 game wave include Road Rash II, Strider, Tetris, Monster World IV, and Darius. The surprise ports are definitely Monster World IV, Darius, and Tetris, which never got official releases on the original console. Tetris, for example, was only available as a super rare cartridge (only around 10 were produced) back in the '80s. You can check out the full lineup of games below, and if you like what you see you can pre-order the Sega Genesis Mini via Walmart (free 2-day shipping) and Amazon (free 2-day shipping for Prime members) with a release date set for September 19th.
