Konami announced a revised version of the TurboGrafx-16 console.

Konami has announced it is joining the nostalgia-fuelled miniature console market with the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini - styled with a lower-case "m" - for the United Kingdom market. It gained widespread notoriety among the playgrounds and treehouses of the dawn of the 1990s thanks to the TurboExpress, and handheld and fully-powered version of the home console. This AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC powered system runs a Linux-based OS and will come stuffed with over 100 classic games - but will also support new titles.

In a showdown with the more popular Sega Genesis and Super NES, the TurboGrafx-16 was more popular overseas than in the United States.

The original TG-16 was developed by Hudson Soft and NEC, however, in 2002 Konami purchased Hudson and later took over operations in 2012.

Are you hyped for the PC Engine Mini? The PC Engine Core Grafx mini is, as the name suggests, a more compact version of the original console from 1987.
