TurboGrafx-16 Mini US Launch Confirmed For March 2020, Full Games List Revealed

Back in early June, Konami announced that it would be releasing a TurboGrafx-16 Mini gaming console, no doubt in order to cash in on the retro gaming craze that exploded with the Nintendo NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition. As its name suggests, the TurboGrafx-16 Mini is a shrunken down copy of the original gaming console from three decades ago.
