While SEGA has been busy prepping for the launch of the Mega Drive Mini, it seems they aren’t done quite yet with the mini console craze. The TurboGrafx-16 Mini (aka the PC Engine Mini) by Konami announced back in E3 has revealed 24 TurboGrafx-16 and and 26 PC Engine titles, effectively mixing both American and Japanese libraries into separate categories. Notably for SEGA fans, the TurboGrafx-16 Mini will be packaged with the TurboGrafx-16 versions of Space Harrier and Fantasy Zone, both originally developed by NEC. Space Harrier will be categorized under the TurboGrafx-16 section, while Fantasy Zone will be categorized under the PC Engine section.
The TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine Mini is currently slated for a March 19th, 2020 release date globally, so if you’re interested in trying out this mini console, pick one up next year!

I’ll probably get this but I would prefer the PC Engine version to the TurboGrafx-16 version. The TG-16 isn’t very mini, it’s actually weirdly large; the PC Engine actually looks to be a similar size to the original, surprisingly small console.
I think I’d rather play the Sega Ages version of the arcade game…
So Sega was already in a third party independent mode even back then when they had their own home sector hardware?
Sega have been making video games since the 70s.
