Posted July 12, 2019 by Richard Lee Breslin in Announcements, Gameplay, Gaming News, Release Date, Screenshots, Trailers

At E3, Konami made the announcement of the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini Console or PC Engine Mini for short.  However, little details were not revealed such as pricing, release dates or the full line-up of games.

However, Konami has now released details on what games will be included, the price and when this bad boy will release.  So let’s start with the pricing, the PC Engine Mini will have an RRP of €89.99, so expect that to be around £79.99/$89.99USD.  Surprisingly, Konami’s mini console will also be exclusive to Amazon across regions.

In terms of games, the PC Engine Mini will have 50 retro games all boosted in glorious HD, 24 will be English titles and the other 26 will be from Japan, many of which were region exclusives, now making their way on to western shores for the very first time.  The titles featured in the line-up of retro goodness, includes the likes of Bomberman ’93, Lords of Thunder, Power Golf, R-Type, Dungeon Explorer and more.


At launch, there will be a couple of optional purchases such as the Turbo Controller with an auto-shooting function, which might be worth picking up, because Konami it seems are only including one controller with the PC Engine Mini bundle.  There will also be a Multi-Tap which enables up-to five-player multiplayer for certain games.

Below you’ll find the full list of 50 games included, the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini Console will release on March 19th, 2020.  Are you looking forward to this latest mini console release?  Let us know across our social media channels.
