NEC TurboGrafx-16 Celebrates its 28th Birthday

So here we are celebrating another console’s 28th birthday. Recently, we had the Sega Genesis anniversary and now we have the NEC TurboGrafx-16 to add to this list. The TurboGrafx-16 is the North America version of the NEC PC Engine and for some reason is a lot larger than the original little white box. Apparently, […]

The Legendary Axe Shows the Turbo Grafx-16 Could Rock – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

When NEC launched the Turbo Grafx-16 in North America they faced many challenges. For one they were slightly off as far as what gamers on this side of the pond wanted (Sega was closer and therefore outsold the NEC machine regularly). The Legendary Axe was quite the showcase title for the Turbo Grafx-16 and definitely […]

Kick in the Teeth of Bad Guys in Vigilante on Turbo Grafx-16 – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

The Turbo Grafx-16 launched with two arcade titles, Vigilante and R-Type. The Sega Genesis on the other hand launched with several arcade ports (all but two, I believe).

Keith Courage in Alpha Zones Pits Players Against the Beastly Alien Dudes – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

This was NEC’s answer to Altered Beast, Keith Courage in Alpha Zones. There is no arcade tie-in here (though the Turbo Grafx-16 did launch with R-Type). NEC was at a disadvantage as far as arcade ports went but that didn’t stop them from trying different things such as a pinball game at launch. Keith Courage […]

Alien Crush Unleashes Extra Terrestrials into Pinball – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

The launch of the Turbo Grafx-16 was the first, and only, foray into the North American gaming market for NEC (for more information on this see our historical look back here). NEC were pulling out all of the stops, at least as many as they could with their libary of launch titles. To say NEC […]
