Apparently they are releasing the Xmen one as well but i assume it'll be 4 player as well. They have just announced a marvel unit as well with Marvel Super Heroes, Children Of The Atom and the old Punisher beat em up (bit of a random mix) I'm surprised they didn't have them with the Xmen beat em up

It's Marvel Super Heroes which is the other release, so just 2 player (X-Men COTA and Punisher are included on that one as well).

The turtles one is beautiful, and the fact it has both the 1989 original as well as Turtles in Time makes it even better.

Sorry that at what I meant. The 3 games I mentioned are on one machine ( I actually cropped it out of the image I posted) but there's rumours that with them being able to licence the marvel games that they will be releasing a 4 player version of the Xmen game. No idea what additional games they would be able to put with it though.

The only arcade machine I've ever "beat."  My brother and I finished it after ploughing huge amounts of our holiday money into it.

Looks as if we will be getting a Turbi Graf X mini console.  I've very little experience with the PC Engine and it's big brother. Didn't tbe games come on thin cards?

Konami caught me off guard as I thought NEC have the hardware rights. NEC are a bloody good manufacturer too. 

So yeah, the PC engine version, this should be interesting.

I wonder of these popped up in Liverpool back in the 80s? NEC sponsored Everton then. Are they releasing three different versions of the same machine? There's  a white one and a grey/blue one to go with the one that's being pushed in the video.

It'll be different cases and game line-ups based on whether it's the Japanese,American or PAL territories version I guess. I need it in my life, though, I've wanted a PC Engine and Neo Geo for ages. The Neo Geo gold and Mini were disasters, though.

Looks like Castlevania: Rondo of Blood is on the PC Engine but not yet on the Turbo. I would quite like an official way to play this. This also means it will have PC Engine as well as PC Engine CD games which is pretty cool.

Anyone tried the Mana games out on switch e-shop yet? Thoughts etc?

I'd be surprised if they weren't holding Rondo Of Blood back for the upcoming Castlevania collection. I wonder how many and what games will be on there. I'd assume something from the Bonk series, as he was ostensibly the PC Engine mascot. I can't imagine they'd be able to secure the licence for the Batman game, which is a shame as it's such an interesting game. Hopefully Gekija Boy finds its way on there, and Cratermaze. I think it mentioned the Ys series, and some of the Adventure Island games in the article above.

Rondo's on PS4 along with SOTN in that duo pack so I doubt it'll also be added in the Castlevania collection too.

The Castlevania collection's been out for a few weeks already.

Castlevania
Castlevania II Simon's Quest
Castlevania III Dracula's Curse
Super Castlevania IV
Castlevania The Adventure
Castlevania II Belmont's Revenge
Castlevania Bloodlines
Kid Dracula

The Mana collection on Switch is pretty much what you'd expect. They play exactly like they always did, slightly dated by today's standards but still fun to play. Nice to have an official English version of 3, too.

That English ROM of 3 has already been ripped from the collection plus it works on original hardware.

Oh and Revival is on this weekend at Walsall's stadium, I'm not going this year as my mate can't make it but it's a decent enough time with a fair few freeplay arcades and old computers and consoles. There are panel's from Sensible Software, Bullfrog and The Oliver Twins too.

My thoughts are that it’s totally overpriced for what you actually get, especially considering the collections with more/better games are much cheaper (eg. Megaman, Castlevania)

Choosing the same price point, more or less, as the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro remasters is a bit greedy of Square.

If you’re interested in the collection, wait until it’s on sale would be my advice. Don’t make the same mistake I did.
