TurboGrafx-16 Mini has 50 English & Japanese games, more might come

Konami recently took the lid off of the TurboGrafx-16 Mini, following in the footsteps of the NES Classic, SNES Classic, and Sega Genesis Mini. It will contain both English and Japanese video games (sometimes both versions of the same game), adding up to 50 announced titles. However, Siliconera is reporting the possibility of even more games being added to the console’s lineup before the TurboGrafx-16 Mini launches on March 19, 2020.

First of all, here are the announced English titles for TurboGrafx-16 Mini:

  • Air Zonk
  • Alien Crush
  • Blazing Lazers
  • Bomberman ‘93
  • Bonk’s Revenge
  • Cadash
  • Chew-Man-Fu
  • Dungeon Explorer
  • J.J. & Jeff
  • Lords Of Thunder
  • Military Madness
  • Moto Roader
  • Neutopia
  • Neutopia II
  • New Adventure Island
  • Ninja Spirit
  • Parasol Stars
  • Power Golf
  • Psychosis
  • R-Type
  • Soldier Blade
  • Space Harrier
  • Victory Run
  • Ys Book I&II

Next, here are the Japanese titles for the TurboGrafx-16 Mini:

  • Akumaj? Dracula X Chi No Rondo (It’s Castlevania: Rondo Of Blood!)
  • Aldynes
  • Appare! Gateball
  • Bomberman ‘94
  • Bomberman Panic Bomber
  • Ch? Aniki
  • Daimakaimura (Ghouls ‘N’ Ghosts)
  • Dungeon Explorer
  • Fantasy Zone
  • Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire
  • Gradius
  • Gradius II – Gofer No Yab? –
  • Jaseiken Necromancer
  • Nectaris (Military Madness)
  • Neutopia
  • Neutopia II
  • Ninja Ry?kenden (Ninja Gaiden)
  • PC-Genjin (That’s Bonk’s Adventure, a necessary staple for TurboGrafx-16 Mini.)
  • Salamander
  • Snatcher
  • Star Parodier
  • Super Darius
  • Super Momotar? Dentetsu II
  • Super Star Soldier
  • The Kung Fu
  • Ys I&II

TurboGrafx-16 Mini will feature quick saves, different display mode/screen filters, and the possibility of five-player gaming if you buy a separate multitap adapter. That last part kind of sucks, but considering Bomberman is one of the most classically entertaining multiplayer series ever, paying extra for multitap will be worth it for some.

On top of officially announced news though, Siliconera has noted that Japanese Twitter user @satoshin_ya recently attended a demo event in Japan for the mini console. This user claims to have talked to the producer of the machine, who said there is “a very good chance” the final machine will contain more than the 50 announced games. Siliconera also notes that the official Japanese press release for TurboGrafx-16 Mini (PC Engine Mini in Japan) states that there are 50 announced titles — but not that there are necessarily 50 titles in total.

In any case, are you interested in picking up the system? I know it was never a hit in America, but our family enjoyed it for what it was. The American retail price has not been announced, but in Japan it will cost 10,500 yen — about $97.
