Moto Roader I and II, Double Dungeons, Shockman and Dragon Egg are coming to the Polymega system.
The HD modular game console will include all five licensed TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine pack-in titles on the EM04 “Turbo” Element Module Set, accoring to developers Playmaji and extreme Co., LTD.
“We’re huge fans of the TurboGrafx-16/PCE,” said Playmaji co-founder and CEO Bryan Bernal. “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.”
With this module, owners can 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)
Polymega 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.
A Polymega prototype was recently featured at E3 2019, and oprainfall’s Josh Speer got to watch the console in action at 2018’s E3 as well.
Key features of the system include:
- First CD-compatible retro console (playable only on base unit, no module required)
- Limitlessly expandable modules for cartridge game support
- Best in class input latency (under 1 frame of delay)
- Install your games and create a beautiful digital library
- Shop for digital releases
- Connect and shop for games and more
- HDTV-compatible light gun
- Powerful Intel Coffee Lake S-based hardware at 3.1GHz
- No complicated setup
Polymega is expected to ship in Q4 2019 and can be configured starting at $299.99 USD for the Base Unit, with modules available for $59.99 each. The console is available for pre-order here.
