Re: Yet Another Mini Thread TurboGrafx-16 mini coming

It would've been cool to see the Japanese PC- Engine version of SF 2. It's crazy how well of a port that is. Very cool to see Snatcher though. I've always wanted to play it but never had the extra $600 sitting around to buy the Sega-CD version ha!

Higher than I expected but Iím still interested. Might put in a pre-order for now. Itís a ways out so I have time to think it over. Iíll probably never play an actual TurboGrafx-16 or PC Engine so this might be a good alternative.

They announced more games, which I was surprised by:



Splatterhouse!

Yeah, I saw several comments here and there saying the lack of Splatterhouse kept them from buying. My wife would rather we emulate things like this, but I like the form factor and interface of mini systems better.

Re: Yet Another Mini Thread TurboGrafx-16 mini coming

I cancelled my preorder on Amazon and ordered one off Amazon Japan. I placed my order Saturday morning (4/18) and it arrived on Tuesday afternoon (4/21). Surprisingly quick. But after spending the weekend with it I am happy that I went ahead and ordered it. I never had an original TurboGrafx 16 but always wanted one, so this is my first time actually playing these games. Some of the game choices are questionable, like who is getting this for the TG-16 port of Space Harrier? But overall there's more good than bad. I didn't notice any lag problems while playing with it, and nothing seemed broke and unplayable. The controller has a better build quality than the Genesis mini's and I was surprised that they kept the shield in the back as a separate removable piece.

Is there any difference with the model sold in Japan? I ordered mine on Amazon as soon as they posted it and my order was just "updated" to have a delivery date of Jan 5th.

There are three different models sold in Japan. The TG16 is the same as the one sold here (it doesn't even come with a plug). While all consoles have both JP and EN versions of most games, there are slight differences (US has salamander, PC Engine has Tokimeki Memorial, PC Engine has a controller with no turbo, etc.)

https://www.amazon.co.jp/b?ie=UTF8&node=6974564051

Right now Japan has just shut down a lot of shipping options to the US. Amazon Japan uses DHL and as of yet is not affected but if you want it I would act sooner rather than later.

edited to add: The Turbographx version is as of right now sold out on Amazon Japan and is only available through 3rd party sellers. Probably a lot of people cancelling their orders from the US contributed to this.

I totally slept on this. Not sure if I want to pull the trigger. Maybe I'll wait for a few more reviews.

Re: Yet Another Mini Thread TurboGrafx-16 mini coming

Wow, I'm kind of surprised that it's not available now. If it does come back in stock it ended up costing me $116.16 with shipping, but since $16 of that was shipping I felt like it wasn't too bad. It's still going to come out here eventually, but I just decided that I would rather spend the money now rather than have Amazon just randomly charge me and ship it whenever things get sorted out with everything that's going on.

Woot! Mine shipped, should have it Monday or Tuesday (probably tuesday, due to Memorial day).


From the reviews, looks like this a retro mini-console done right!

Re: Yet Another Mini Thread TurboGrafx-16 mini coming

Got mine today. First the back cover was a pain to remove, once I plug in the A/C and HDMI I never put it back on. Haven't played all the games yet just a few shooters and Alien Crush. Glad that the controller cord is longer than the NES mini. So far I liking this mini and going play some more tomorrow.
