The TurboGrafx-16 Mini reveals 50-title game list, but will miss the Christmas season

The SEGA Genesis Mini will arrive first, but it's smart for Konami to wait and not crowd the holiday market with two console releases.
The TurboGrafx-16 Mini will be released on March 19, 2020. Previously, design differences between the regions for the original console led us to believe each would have it's own set of games. However, it seems as though all the games will be released on both consoles. This makes the total 50 games for both the TurboGrafx-16 and PC Engine Mini models.

There have been no official prices release, but speculation is aiming around $99. All games feature a save function and a five-player multiplayer with a multitap accessory will be sold separately. I'm also hearing these consoles will be exclusive to Amazon (perhaps only for pre-order) and can be pre-ordered during their Prime Day event.

Below are the game lists separated by US and Japanese titles. You will notice slight overlap.
