Nintendo knocked it out of the park when they released the hugely successful NES and SNES mini consoles. Since then, other manufacturers including Sony and Sega have tried to replicate Nintendo’s success and have had mixed results. Now, Konami is coming out with their own mini-console of the 16-Bit generation, the TurboGrafx-16 Mini Console.

This was a console based on the NEC PC-Engine, and shipped with Turbo-enabled controllers in the US. It was also the first US console to ship a CD-expansion, and several games, including the first ever home console port of Splatterhouse, took advantage of it.

This is a great list of games including incredible versions of games like Ninja Gaiden and Snatcher. Just wish Snatcher could’ve received a US translation from the release here. The ship date is currently May 22nd, 2020. It is exclusively available on Amazon.
