Konami has announced plans to release a new mini version of its TurboGrafx-16 console. The miniaturized retro console — which was once described as Kanye West’s favorite of all time — is set to release alongside a whole host of retro games including R-Type, Ninja Spirit and Alien Crush, with more to be announced.
Just like the original release of the TurboGrafx-16, the miniature console will have different names in different parts of the world. In Europe, for example, it will be called the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini, while Japan will see the release of the PC Engine Mini. Currently, Konami has announced no pricing details or release date, so keep an eye out in the near future.
If the system is a bit too retro for you, learn more about the TurboGrafx-16’s history and other retro gaming systems from the 90s.
