Konami's PC Engine Mini/TurboGrafx-16 Mini is launching on March 19th next year. The mini-console's full lineup has also been revealed.

In addition to these two announcements, there's good news for fans of Japanese PC Engine gaming. Barring dating sim Tokimeki Memorial, every Japanese PC Engine Mini game will also be included in the European and American versions of the console. Tokimeki Memorial will be replaced with side-scrolling shooter Salamander (also known as Life Force) in those regions. Amazon will be handling pre-orders of the console if you'd like to get your hands on one. You'll need to be a Prime subscription, though, since the pre-order is a Prime Day exclusive.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
