The often forgotten TurboGrafx-16 was released at an odd time in history, just on the cusp of the 16-bit era in the United States. As Nintendo and Sega dominated that market, it never really stood a chance.
Hudson is now giving the system another chance on the iPhone. The official TurboGrafx-16 app will free and come with one game, World Sports Competition. Extra games will cost $3.99 each, and while the company hasn't released a list, we bet you'll get the chance to play Bonk on your iPhone pretty quickly. There was no word on whether Japan-only titles (The TurboGrafx was released a couple years earlier in Japan) or CD based games would find their way onto the app. Here's hoping for a $3.99 version of Dracula X.
