Hope it has all 4 of the Valis PCE games + Visual Collection
Probably won't pick it up, as I have no need for another mini console, but that would be neat.

What games will be in the console?
Will it still accept hu-cards?
Can we add roms?

For the uninitiated, the PC engine was the Saturn of the 8-bit gen. It didn't exactly beat its competition at anything, but it had many great games regardless, tons of personality and several gems that just never got ported properly. Konami games especially. They made a good decision here.
>>
>>5655084
agreed. Really sad the rights to Valis were sold off and it became a really shitty hentai vn.

>>5654052
I'm one of the few in America that owned one as a kid. I had one, sadly do not have it no more though. It was a nice little console so as long as they include enough games and the emulation is good this mini should be a fun buy. I think one problem though is not enough people will have a nostalgia for it unless they are Japanese. So this thing will either go ignored or maybe it will sell on the novelty which hopefully it does sell since it deserved more sales.
>>
>>5654052
This is so fucking stupid.
I'll buy at least one.
>>
>>5655140
They're going to put out a multi tap adapter for it so logically they'll have to include at least one of the Bombermans to justify it's existence.

give it a short time after release, it will be hacked. they all get hacked. all these companies are shit at security and only interested in mass production of these things to cash in on morons.
>>5655151
>For the uninitiated, the PC engine was the Saturn of the 8-bit gen
PC Engine was far more successful than the Saturn. what a shitty comparison. The Saturn was a complete market failure, the PC Engine was mass produced by several companies and had a longer life than anyone expected. I'm not sure if you're a zoomer, just plain ol' retarded, or both? hard to tell on this board.

Konami murdered Hudsonsoft. They bought it, shut it down, and haven’t done much with the intellectual property it purchased. That Switch Bomberman game.
>>
>>5655690
Eh.. I was one of the people arguing that this was not going to happen on /vr/ a few weeks ago. Because of the evil NuKonami and/or IP licensing issues. And now we have this list, and honestly it’s kinda “Meh” no matter what side of the pacific you live on. But at least it will include CD titles. Strangely the European market will get the Japanese PC Engine design and not the version that was actually available in Europe. Weird!

On the bright side! This means we get brand new usb Hudson joycards!

fucking awe, I want it badly. It was truly the best 16-bit system.

Had a TG-16 when I was a kid, so kind of want. But I already play all the games now, so there's really no point. I suppose I'd get one if it was twenty bucks or something and I could add all the actual good games that they're bound not to include.
>>
>>5656167
If anything it makes Millennials buy Gen X wares. Based as fuck. Games that they'd idiotically shun before this new mini comes out will now be something they'll pay a premium for in its original form. Can't wait for the Atari 2600 mini.
>>
>make a mini version of the console
>it doesn't accept the original cards

What's the fucking point to make it looks like the console? Just sell a fucking opaque box with a bundled emulator.
>>
>>5656189
literally so boomers on reddit can go "this will look SO good next to my other mini consoles". Believe it or not but someone will buy the mini mega drive fake cartridge and sega CD. Litearally colored pieces of plastic

They pulled this same fuckery when they did digital releases, released Alien Crush and then never made Devil's Crush available in the US. Or Ninja Spirit. Or Legendary Axe. Or Bonk 2.

If this mini doesn't have Devil's Crush and Legendary Axe they can fuck right off

This is like if they released an NES mini where only the Japanese version had any Mario games and they left out Metroid and Contra. This is really, really obvious shit they're screwing up, what the fuck

The Saturn has more games tho

You guys may want to sit down for this, but there's an long-lived general thread right here on 4channel dedicated to buying colored pieces of plastic >>>/a/189295810

>>5656403
Don't you see that they do things like this so that they can include the stuff you want now left out of this version than on the newer version that will come out in a few years?

Legendary Axe II über alles btw.
>>
>>5655696
>PC Engine was far more successful than the Saturn. what a shitty comparison

The saturn held it's one against the playstation in Japan. PCE has a much stronger variety of exclusives compared to the saturn, but it's sales figures went down the shitter once the super famicom launched
>>
>>5656403
More like if a Genesis Mini had Streets of Rage but not Streets of Rage 2, or haha Sonic 1 and 2 but not 3 haha imagine that
>>
>>5654052
This better be on it.
>>
They better include Splatterhouse and Bonk, or they be a bunch of nigger faggots and have this deserve to bomb

If it doesn't have Military Madness and Cybercore I'll be disappointed.

That's because "the version that was actually available in Europe" was an obscurity nobody even knew existed. Everyone that owned the thing back in the day owned an imported PC Engine. Import gaming is much bigger in Europe than in America.

Will we be able to somehow add roms?
Which emulator will it use?

Ninja Spirit was absolutely on the Wii VC, that's where I first played it. 99% certain Bonk 2 was there too.

>>5657687
>Ninja Spirit was absolutely on the Wii VC, that's where I first played it. 99% certain Bonk 2 was there too.
They were both on there, I bought and downloaded 'em.
>>
>>5656403
You gotta collect them all desu. The real reason different regions have different games. Utterly brilliant marketing.
>>
>>5656106
Devil's Crush was better on the Genesis.
>>
>>5657693
Wow imagine buying roms only to lose them when nintendo eventually launches a new console. I bet you feel like a huge asshole.
>>
>>5657683
Either Mednafen or one of the Mednafen derived cores from Retroarch.
It's GPL and should run reasonably well on an ARM chip.
>>
>>5657709
>Wow imagine buying roms only to lose them when nintendo eventually launches a new console. I bet you feel like a huge asshole.
I didn't lose them in any way, so I feel rather smug. Before they closed their shop I downloaded everything I wanted, then moved them all onto an SD card and then did it again with another card, with some being leftover on the Wii's system memory (redundant ones again).
And with the Wii being able to output 240p, it's probably the all-around best classic go to emulator box.
>>
>>5657717
If you're just gonna jailbreak and load them to an external storage device anyway why bother paying? Just pirate that shit.
>>
>>5657708
Musically, yes.
>>
>>5657725
>If you're just gonna jailbreak and load them to an external storage device anyway why bother paying?
Their emulation is better sometimes and I want to repay Nintendo because I've downloaded many more of their games that they haven't sold me. I can hear it all now, but my policy is to pay for what is sold (within reason) and to download the rest.
>>
>>5657730
Nintendo doesn't actually want you to keep their roms forever though which is why you can only "stream" (lol) NES games in the Switch virtual console now. They even marketed that as the "Videogame Netflix" and faggots like you ate it up. Keep giving them money, retard.
>>
>>5657746
You sound like a moron. I do own a Switch too, but I can do this cool thing called thinking and I dislike the idea of not owning games, so I just use the Switch to play carts. Cards, whatever. And how is Nintendo going to make me delete my ROMs that are backed up double redundancy?

Friendly reminder:

Download complete romsets, fuck the mini cancer.

the other mini systems didn't make sense to me, but this I can get behind. i'll buy one.

That's where the TG16 really screwed up, too much awesome stuff left in japan. RPGs in particular.

The screwed up ones are the players that don't speak Japanese.
