It’s been announced that the TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine module (or the EM04 “Turbo” Element Module Set to give its full title) for the upcoming modular retro console Polymega will include five licensed pack-in games playable from the module itself.

The five bonus titles are Moto Roader (NA and JP versions), Moto Roader II (JP version), Double Dungeons (NA and JP versions), Shockman (NA and JP versions) and Dragon Egg (JP version).

Turbo Module Masaya Announce

The console is looking to be a very convenient and faithful solution for all your retro gaming needs – it’s even going to feature a Retro Gun Controller accessory that will let you play light gun games on a modern HD TV set. Check out our hands-on feature courtesy of Jeremy Parish (who’s apparently partial to the odd retro game).

The only obvious fly in the ointment at the moment appears to be the price – $299.99 for the base unit plus $59.99 per module. These pack-in games do sweeten the deal, but the cost is up there with current gen consoles.

It seems that Turbografx and PC Engine fans have plenty to look forward to at the moment – the announcement of the Turbografx-16 and PC Engine Mini consoles means there’s suddenly multiple ways to play that system’s catalogue on a modern telly. Check out our Turbografx-16 and PC Engine Mini pre-order guide for more info on the mini console.

Do these pack-in games make the Polymega a more attractive offering to you? Do you like the look of Playmaji’s modular retro solution? Let us know with a comment below.
