PC ENGINE NEC

Known as PC Engine in Japan and Turbo Graphx 16 in the USA.

The PC Engine was first to use card based games called HuCards. It was also the first Console to have a CD addon well before the MEga CD appeared. For its time the PC Engine provided near arcade quality games with titles such as R-type and Street Fighter. Bomberman was first written for the PC Engine and a Multitap is available for up to 5 players. The PC Engine also provided upgrades in the form of Addon Cards which added more memory.
