Polymega™ – the world’s first HD modular game console – will include five licensed TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine pack

Postby ccgr » Tue Jul 23, 2019 2:12 am

Playmaji, Inc. and extreme Co., LTD today announced that Polymega™ – the world’s first HD modular game console – will include five licensed TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine pack-in titles on the EM04 “Turbo” Element Module Set.

With this module, owners will be able to play original TG-16 and Japanese PCE HuCard games on the system region free, using either OEM controllers or the in-house designed 6-button “Turbo” retro controller, one of which is packed in with each Module Set. TurboGrafx CD and PC-Engine CD games can be played through the base unit itself, without the need for a module.

Bonus Digital TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine Pack-in Titles:

Moto Roader モトローダー (NA + JP Versions)
Moto Roader II モトローダーII (JP Version)
Double Dungeons ダブルダンジョン (NA + JP Versions)
Shockman 改造町人シュビビンマン2 新たなる敵 (NA + JP Versions)
Dragon Egg どらごんEGG! (JP Version)

With the unveiling of the five TG-16 pack-in titles, Playmaji’s commitment to preserving both popular retro games and hidden/import gems is even more clear.

QUOTE
“We’re huge fans of the TurboGrafx-16/PCE. It’s exciting to share with players a great new way to explore this wonderfully underrated system through five great classic digital pack-in games as part of our partnership with Japan-based extreme Co.,LTD and the Masaya Games brand."

– Bryan Bernal (Co-Founder & CEO, Playmaji, Inc.)
Polymega - TG16 Controller
With Polymega, retrogaming fans can play an ever-growing list of classic game cartridge and CD-based game systems in high-definition, without the clutter and sub-par video quality of decades-old hardware. It supports original classic games media and controllers for everything from the 8-bit NES, up to difficult to emulate 32-bit systems such as the Sega Saturn. It’s the perfect game console for players looking for an authentic, yet modern classic games experience for their living room.

Polymega was recently featured at E3, where the prototype hardware was “put through its paces” by Digital Foundry and Modern Vintage Gamer, Tom’s Guide, and more.
