PC Engine Core Grafx mini will be released in select European countries. Two additional variants will be released in North America and Japan, named TurboGrafx-16 mini and PC Engine mini respectively. 

The original consoles were well-known for introducing several historical firsts, including the first console with a CD-ROM add-on and the first console to offer multi-tap support for up to five players. More than that, however, the consoles became a collector’s favourite thanks to their quality game line-up; many of which will be included in this re-release.
