Konami has also revealed the lineups for the European version of the console (under the title "PC Engine CoreGrafx mini") and the Japanese version of the console (under the title "PC Engine mini"). The European version of the console features the same lineup as the American version. The Japanese version will not have Salamander and will instead feature Tokimeki Memorial.

The original PC Engine console launched in Japan in 1987, and then debuted in the United States in 1989. The console eventually spawned several variants including portable versions and versions equipped with CD-ROM drives.
