Konami Digital Entertainment announced the TurboGrafx-16 mini, a compact version of the classic 1980s console.

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 favorite thanks to their quality games line-up; many of which will be included in this re-release.

Now even smaller compared to the original, the console will fit in the palm of your hand and feature a full-sized controller.
