Wil there be a PC Engine Mini? WOW! Automatic buy for me.
I am only afraid that it could be easily confused for, say, a coaster or a business card holder case?... it was already so tiny!
"PC Engine Micro", perhaps?
In addition to loads of classics, I hope the games will include the exclusive versions of western titles such as Dungeon Master and It Came from the Desert.

I don't want a PC Engine mini, I want a PC Engine Maxi! With Outrun! I cried buckets of tears in my youth knowing I had to settle for a dreadfully inferior 8-bit port whilst all those PCE kids were laughing merrily at my expense. I still need therapy to this day.

Lol the mini craze is going nuts- how small is a mini PCE going to be though?! Great system, any number of great arcade ports could be on it, licensing permitting. R-Type Outrun and Streetfighter II the obvious ones. Would hope to see a few unique PCE titles on it though. I loved Chan & Chan! So many fab games on this beast though. Would have to be a good line up to compete well with the upcoming Mega drive mini for me. The MD mini looks the one that will set the standard with a really decent setlist.

GINGA FUKEI DENSETSU SAPPHIRE

Stunning game that could easily pass as something on the Saturn or PlayStation. The PC Engine is fabled for its quality shooters and this being one of the last titles released was a real swan song for the system.

I would like to see Gunhed. This is without a doubt the best shoot-em-up on the original PC Engine. It has excellent graphics, challenge and sound. To me Gunhed is synonymous with the PC Engine's amazing performance and tiny physical size.

For me it has to be R-Type, such a good version of it

A couple of two player sports games. Multiplayer sports were a huge part of 8 and 16 bit gaming. All the Mini consoles have failed on this so far.
