At this time many people who want to be nostalgic with the past when game consoles, especially home game consoles first came out. This made the giant Japanese game developer re-develop the console to satisfy the desires of its users. So that the giant Japanese game developer, Konami, will also release a console in 2020. However, the interesting thing here is that this console is not a new, more sophisticated console, but a console made is a device used to play older Konami outputs. This is welcomed by gamers especially those who want to restore their childhood memory. This console is called PC Engine which is a game console that was popular in 1980 to 1990 which at that time was still using large tapes and can only hold a small memory that has now evolved to a tiny size, and can be able to accommodate as many as more than 50 game output Konami from the 1980s to the 1990s.

The TurboGrafx-16 Mini and PC Engine Mini are playable at Tokyo Game Show this week, and the system looks incredibly promising, in no small part thanks to the high quality emulation from developer M2. The system itself feels accurate to the era; the TurboGrafx-16 mini controllers feel light and comfortable, just like the original, based on my hands-on time with the system. The TG-16 is big for a “mini” console, and not nearly as aesthetically pleasing as the PC Engine version.

The retro console’s interface is straightforward. There’s a list of games that I can scroll through horizontally, and I can rearrange their order by title and release date. A series of options, like language, display settings, background wallpapers, and more, is available by pressing down on the d-pad and entering a cleanly laid out menu.

PC Engine can be called an emulator console which contains a number of games developed by Nintendo and Sega Genesis. What distinguishes the initial generation of this console is the latest console does not require a cassette to store the game. At first glance, the look of this console is similar to the Super NES Classic console that was launched by Nintendo some time ago. PC Engine has a unique controller design with Super NES. The controller is connected to the console via a USB cable. Meanwhile, to connect with a monitor, this console uses an HDMI port similar to Super NES Classic. There are a number of legendary game titles present in this console such as Bomberman, Dragon Spirit, Galaga 88, Seirei Senshi Spriggan to The Legend of Valkyrie.

Konami showed off this game console at the 2019 Tokyo Game Show that took place some time ago. In use when playing on a PC Engine console it feels a little different when compared to playing old games through Nintendo Classic or Super NES Classic. Most likely it is caused by the controller model which is slightly different both in terms of console function and the shape of the joy stick. Despite having the same button arrangement, the position of the button is slightly lower than the Super NES Classic. So it takes a little adjustment when you first grasp. The rest, this console presents a similar experience to the old console in the 80s and 90s. For those of you who want the sensation of nostalgia when a small PC Engine can be an alternative console that can be played to satisfy that taste.

In addition, this console also provides multiplayer for up to five people who can connect with add-ons so that it can be said that this console is intended for home and family consoles, but to note is that the additional controller is sold separately, and now when storing game progress is accelerated in storage process. The size of this console is only 240 mm x 156 mm x 35 mm so the size does not change much with the original console.
