The console will come in three designs. The Japanese market will get the original white PC Engine, while Europe will get the CoreGrafx revision (which was basically just a different case colour). In the US, players will get the TurboGrafx-16 case design, which was larger to appeal to American sensibilities.
Hopefully Australia gets the CoreGrafx version as well. That's the best looking one.

I agree with ICM. Rabble!

I'm still dirty with EA for closing westwood.

And still pissed at namco for patenting loading screen mini games.

BASTARDS!!!

I've told you before, stay out of my playlists! 😡

...and why isn't there a BG podcast? We're missing out on $$$ to buy all this stuff 😂

Just looking at the Japanese list, if I remember correctly; you can switch the language from Japanese to either English or Mandarin via the title screen with Ninja Gaiden.

I'm assuming that some of the Super CD games will feature English text with Japanese audio? They could reuse some of the virtual console releases.

Nobody knows yet. It's going to be super annoying if Snatcher doesn't have English subs.
