The TurboGrafx-16 Mini Launches Tomorrow


Konami officially announced the TurboGrafx-16 mini nearly a year ago, with the hopes of bringing their own gaming nostalgia box to market in March 2020. Sadly, the coronavirus crisis put a damper on those plans, but the console did get into the hands of numerous reviewers last month and it was very well received. Fortunately, the long wait for the console is at an end.

Amazon has an exclusive on the TurboGrafx-16 Mini in the U.S. (known as the PC Engine elsewhere), and it is slated to launch tomorrow, May 22nd. You can reserve one here for $99.99. Note that the console only includes one controller. If you need another one, this new wireless model from 8Bitdo would be a good choice.

Given the delay, there's no telling how many units are available, so you'll want to get your pre-order in sooner rather than later if you have yet to do so. A breakdown of the whopping 57 games that are available on the console can be found below along with a trailer.
