Even if you only know a couple things about me, you likely know by now that I’m a big fan of classic gaming! So, you can imagine my pleasant surprise the other day when I stumbled upon a website dedicated to taking awesome classic NES games and recoding and redesigning them so that they’ll run on a TurboGrafx-16. The site and its projects, referred to as NES2PCE, has been operating for quite some time and has quite a few games under its belt:
- Ducktales 2
- Robo Warrior
- Super Mario Bros.
- Dragon Warrior
- Mega Man
- Mega Man 2
I’ve also dug around online and found a few other projects that aren’t listed on their website, so a good search online may turn up a few additional games. In most cases, the games are very faithful recreations, with the main difference being an enhanced color palette and different (better) sound card usage.
So, if you’re into retro gaming and enjoy the TurboGrafx-16 as well as the NES, check out the NES2PCE website and rediscover some classics upgraded for new hardware!
