50 games, £80 price tag, March 19th 2020 release date, preorders open on Prime Day.

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019 ... es-line-up

Seems some titles overlap (Both TG and Japanese PC Engine versions offered) and would of like Gates of Thunder, but a very decent line up.

Ordered a Turbografx one via Amazon.com, which worked out about £3-4 more than the Coregrafx when including import fees and shipping. Just a preference of model on my end.

That said, are these Mini consoles easy to play when importing one? I know they mostly use a micro USB cable for power, but if I plugged the USB cable into a UK AC Adapter, it won't fry the US Turbografx Mini right?

A Nostalgic one that never owned a PC Engine, let alone a Core, but snagged a brand new boxed UK Turbografx for £45 about 10 years ago. :lol:

More games added to the line up, including the much requested Splatterhouse.

Had one preordered since last year. The hype's getting pretty real now as I've never owned a PC Engine before, played and enjoyed loads of stuff via Virtual Console/emulation though. Only thing I'm a bit disappointed about is that the version of Splatterhouse on the western consoles is apparently the censored 'red mask' version whereas the Japan release will have the uncensored original 🙁

The japanese white one is really cute, but the European Core Grafx does absolutely nothing for me. Looks really bland, and looks is important on a mini console.

The worst censorship with the Western Splatterhouse is the Church level. They removed the upside down cross boss as well as the altar. So after Rick beats the cross he kneels next to the alter but on the western version there’s nothing there.

I get Ricks mask changing colour as he looks to much like Jason, I doubt they could copyright a Hockey Mask.
