Konami has announced more release details for its retro TurboGrafx-16 Mini, including a release date and the full game library. The mini-console will include a library of 50 games, though some are repeats between their English- and Japanese-language versions. It will release on March 19, 2020.

The mini-console will be available for purchase from Amazon, and pre-orders will open as a Prime subscriber exclusive on the upcoming Amazon Prime Day, which starts on July 15. The name and design of the mini-console will be different based on territory based on its roots in the region--TurboGrafx-16 Mini in America, PC Engine Core Mini (after the Core Grafx) in Europe, and PC Engine Mini in Japan. The price is set at $100 / 89.99 RRP.

The full game line-up includes 24 TurboGrafx-16 games, and 26 PC Engine games. Each region will get roughly the same library, so English-speaking customers will get the collection of Japanese-language games too. The one exception is to the Japanese PC Engine Mini, which will Tokimeki Memorial instead of Salamander.

The libraries themselves have some crossover. Both libraries have the Neutopia games, Ys games, and Military Madness. But there are also some curious spots where the two don't overlap. It has the Japanese version of Bonk, and then the English version of its sequel, Bonk's Revenge. The two have different variations of Bomberman. Snatcher, one of the earliest games from Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, was only ever released in Japan, so this only includes that version.
