It is one of the best consoles of the 90s and it returns renewed

A classic that comes back to life

It was in 1993 when NEC launched onto the market and decided to bet on the CD format with a console that kept the full power of your PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16 but with that extra capacity that allows you to have a total of 650MB at your disposal. Intros, music and more possibilities to expand the games came with this model that, at least in Spain, was not so popular among the authentic gamers and moved through very limited circles of influence.

NEC TurboDuo.

Now with fashion mini In which we have been living for some years, what has just been announced by the company Analogue is surprising, a brand that has already launched a Game Boy clone capable of reproducing original cartridges natively for sale with enormous success and is now trying its luck with this Duo, just plain, which is a tribute to one of the most remembered game systems from three decades ago.

Proof of this is the enormous hype that has aroused the announcement since we had been hearing news of a development for three years Now, yes, it does have a definitive date for its sale: at least to reserve one for us on the same day of release, which will be tomorrow, May 19, at around 3:00 p.m. in Spain (8:00 AM in the Pacific) for a price of $249.99.

What can we play with?

as we tell you, This Analogue Duo recovers the design of the original NEC console and it will also be sold in two colors: black and white. The first is in honor of the American TurboDuo that went on sale in the US and the second for the PC Engine Duo that only hit stores in Japan. So you decide which of the two versions you are going to bet on.

And when it comes to games, you can use all the ones you have at home, both in card format (the famous HuCard of a lifetime) and the CDs themselves where some classics like castlevania, etc. So if you still have your small collection of classics, take this opportunity because this Duo from Analogue does not emulate anything, it natively plays the games as if it were the original system.

But it is that in addition to that, you have all the advantages of modern technology, such as the wireless controls (not wired), digital audio and video outputs at 1080p via HDMI and support for any title for the console that was, it does not matter if American, Japanese or European in the case of having reached the stores: TurboGrafx 16, PC Engine, SuperGrafx, TurboGrafx CD. PC Engine CD-ROM or Super Arcade CD-ROM, for example.

as we tell you, The thing looks like they are going to run out quickly the units that are put up for sale so if you are VERY interested… you know what you have to do.
