The PC Engine was mini to begin with, its unique in the way that they could have kept the system's original size and added support for existing Hucards , like the analogue interactive systems.

You can tell that M2 had a hand in this... I love the attention to detail, like the little Tennokoe Memory Bank icons in the save state menus. 👍
