TURBOGRAFX-16 – FEATURES
The first 16-bit console to hit the market, the TurboGrafx-16 was certainly an impressive system, capable of displaying almost arcade-level graphics, smooth gameplay and high quality sound.
With an 8-bit CPU, 16-bit video color encoder and 16-bit display controller, the TurboGrafx-16’s hardware is certainly impressive, allowing the system to simultaneously display 482 colors on-screen, out of a pallet of 512 available. <...
Officially called the TurboPad, the TurboGrafx-16 not only has the classical D-pad and action buttons, but it also features two Turbo switches with 3 different settings! This allows the button being held down to register as several pushes, making your life a lot easier in the system’s action-packed shooters.
TURBOGRAFX-16 – THE GAMES
With over 600 titles available, the TurboGrafx-16’s library is one of the most qualitative ones you’ll find. The small number of third party developers meant that companies could put more resources into their games, leading to far more robust experiences than on its competition.

TURBOGRAFX-16 – FUN FACTS
- Most of the system’s games came on a special HuCard ROM cartridges, a thin, credit-card like system.
- The TurboGrafx-16 was the first video game console capable of playing CD-ROM games with an optional add-on.
- While the console launched before Sega’s Genesis, it only managed to sell a mere 5.8 million units, mainly due to the lack of third-party developers.
While the kids in my neighborhood had Nintendoâ€™s I first had the sega master system then got an NEC Turbo Grafx 16 with one controller and the game Keith Courage. ( not counting Atari or colecovision or pong etc) . I was the only person I knew with a turbo grafx 16 . When I saw that there was a mini being released I almost got tears. I ordered it right away and today I got it. It brings back great memories. Even the box it came in as just like the original. It works and looks great and the only gripe I have is that my favorite turbo grafx game â€œ silent debuggersâ€ wasnâ€™t included in the game list on the system or Keith courage which was the game my edition originally cane with. But otherwise itâ€™s like I stepped back to the early 80â€™s . I love this mini and if youâ€™re looking for a great selection of games on a great reproduction of a great system buy a turbo grafx 26 mini and donâ€™t miss out. If you missed it the first time around you gotta get it now. I am absolutely once again sssssoooooo pleased!!!!!
First off, I gave this 4 stars because retrolio japan put a STICKER on the FRONT of the nice box. So stupid. I like to display these boxes and it doesn’t look like an easy sticker to peel off.The system itself is 5 stars! It’s bigger than the other minis, like double the size. But it’s still nice looking and very light, but doesn’t look or feel cheap.The menus and music in the menus are top notch. Emulation is really good. Some people have mentioned shimmer in some titles, and it is apparent. But it’s not a big deal. If you set the screen to the pixel perfect mode, in some games it goes away or is much less noticeable.On my 4K Sony TV, the games look and sound amazing. Just make sure you tweak your video settings to get it to look how you want. On default settings games could look warped.The selection of games is damn near perfect! I didn’t grow up with the turbografx, I was more of a Nintendo guy. However I did play the odd title here or there and tried a couple of these games via emulation. This system is loaded with hidden gems, and amazing shooters. Shooters aren’t my favorite genre, but I’m loving the ones on this mini! I’m so excited to try and finish them all.On a final note, I ordered this on a Saturday and it arrived to my door on Monday. I’m located far away in Canada, which is amazing, especially considering I ordered on a weekend.If you have the slightest interest or even hesitation to pick this up, don’t pass it up! I think this mini is much better than the NES, SNES, and even Genesis one.Spectacular job Konami, given how you’ve disappointed gamers in the past decade or so.
I owned the original Turbo Grafx 16 back in 1989, and sold it before a cross country move some years back. Its one of a few things I regret selling. The Turbo Grafx 16 mini is absolutely awesome! I won’t go into much details as there are a ton of reviews of the system and game line up that already do so. I purchased one of the 3rd party wireless controllers and it works flawlessly. I’ve spent many hours going going down memory lane of when I was 13 playing Bonks Adventure and some of the other titles that most Americans never new about. This is absolutely hands down the most fun I’ve had retro gaming. The graphics, sounds and music are just plain good old fashioned fun. I Highly recommended this mini console for the the few that owned it back in the day, and for everyone else who missed it playing NES. Its worth purchasing it just to play Castlevania Rondo of Blood which was of pure unobtainable legend when it came out, and is still ranked one of, if not the best Castlevania game titles of all time. A+!
Arrived in a bubble wrap envelope with the box in pristine condition all the way over to the Big Island of Hawaii!Everything inside was brand new and sealed.Worked flawlessly when plugged into the various sockets.Took more time to clean up the area it was gonna sit than to setup!Dracula X: Rondo of Blood is soooooo good!!!
I have waited 30 years to own a TG-16. I use to play the demos at a very young age at the stores that carried it back in the day but never got the opportunity to get one. I almost tried to attempt collect the original TG-16 console and games but the prices on eBay and such are completely insane. When I heard Konami was bringing out the Mini version of the TG-16, I knew I had to get one. Thank you retrolio for selling this to me and get it sent to me on launch day in the US. The games on here are great including the Japanese PC Engine games and I have this sitting next to my PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Spending $100 for this Mini and 57 games is way better than spend thousands on the original which is super rare. Highly recommended and youâ€™re missing out on these underrated games if you donâ€™t buy one.
Excelente producto. Merece mucho la pena ya que una turbo graftx de segunda mano estÃ¡ mucho mÃ¡s cara y ni hablar de los juegos. La colecciÃ³n de juegos es muy amplia y es excelente si nunca antes habÃas jugado alguno de su catÃ¡logo.
like all reviewers, I wish it had more American titles. It is great to switch between PC Engine and TG16 but the PC games, Dracula X, narration are either in german,… lol weird, and or Japanese. I bought the NA console. Great buy wish it had Keith courage and others. Also doesn’t come with a power adapter…5v 2.0amp will do from a Samsung product, but non the less, strange as well. Overall great buy!
Great addition to my retro mini collection. Itâ€™s missing the classic pack-in game, Keith Courage, but otherwise is perfect.
Es una maravilla, siempre tuve ganas de la consola original pero contesta versiÃ³n mini estoy mÃ¡s que complacido, lo Ãºnico malo es que solo trae un control pero el diseÃ±o y los juegos lo valen.
I use have to a TurboGrafx when I was 12.This console is fantastic with games I dreamed of having when I was a kid. If you like retro games from the early 90s you should get this mini console.
