I may have just let out a small squee of delight, I knew the TurboGrafx-16 Mini, or as it will be known over here, the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini, was going to have R-Type on it but I’ve just found out it also includes Parasol Stars! Woohoo!

The mini console will be available to pre-order on July 15th, Amazon Prime Day, and will cost  €90, so closer to £80 for those in the United Kingdom. It also includes R-Type and Parasol Stars.


The new console is a smaller version of the original model with a bunch of built in games and a quick save function so you can pick up your game where you left off rather than having to start from the beginning. It will also support five player local co-op, but you will need to purchase an extra bit of hardware called a Multitap to use that feature. Interesting fact: The console features both R-Type and Parasol Stars.

Unlike many other mini consoles the controllers will retain their original size and the console will also support a number of different modes that let you choose how your games look, such as by replicating the scanlines on a CRT TV for that ultimate old school gaming experience when playing R-Type and Parasol Stars.

Here is the full list of games, some of which are the English versions – such as R-Type and Parasol Stars – while the rest are the original Japanese games.
