Versions of these games may be coming for other regions, but they have yet to be announced.

Konami Digital Entertainment on Tuesday took the wraps off the TurboGrafx-16 mini.

To reflect the multiple versions of the console out in the wild, USA markets will get the TurboGrafx-16 Mini, with Japan and Europe getting their own regional variations: the PC Engine Mini and PC Engine CoreGrafx Mini.

Marvel's Avengers is also set to have a roadmap of DLC available for free, with no loot boxes or pay to win scenarios. The game will drop on PS4, Xbox One, Stadia (yes, that new thing we didn't know about until the other day), and PC.

Konami has announced the TurboGrafx-16 mini (North America) / PC Engine CoreGrafx mini (Europe) / PC Engine mini (Japan), a compact version of the classic 1980s console featuring a range of built-in games. In the USA, players will get the TurboGrafx-16 case design, which was larger to appeal to American sensibilities.

"The original [TurboGrafx-16] consoles were well-known for introducing several historical firsts, including the first console with a CD-ROM add-on and the first console to offer multi-tap support for up to five players", the press release from Konami states. Thanks to the company's absorption of Hudson back in 2012, Konami has the rights to the company's classic consoles, and it's making use of it by releasing miniature versions of the most iconic.

Pricing and release details have not been announced.
