As Polygon reports, although a price and release date have yet to be confirmed, Konami will be releasing the retro console as the TurboGrafx-16 Mini in the United States, the PC Engine Mini in Japan, and the PC Engine Core Grafx Mini in Europe.

To be more precise, the TurboGrafx-16 Mini will come to North America, the PC Engine Mini will be released in Japan, while the PC Engine CoreGrafx Mini will be released in Europe.

The console will come in three designs.

In total, roughly 650 games were released for the PC Engine, with only 121 of those localized and 18 being exclusive to the U.S. market. In the U.S., players will get the TurboGrafx-16 case design, which was larger to appeal to American sensibilities. Numerous games on those systems, though, have been re-released in myriad forms for many different platforms over the years.

Originally released in Japan in 1987 as the TurboGrafx-16 home console captivated gamers with its revolutionary graphics and sound, and still holds a special place in the hearts of fans today.

The Japanese version of the console will get Super Star Soldier, The Kung Fu, PC Genjin, Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Ys Book I & II, and Dungeon Explorer.
