E3 06: Bonk's Adventure playable on Wii

TurboGrafx mascot will be playable at E3 at the Hudson booth.

LOS ANGELES--Bonk's Adventure will be playable on the Nintendo Wii at this year's E3, and it is being showcased at the Hudson booth. The game is a port of the 1990 TurboGrafx classic and will be released through the Wii's Virtual Console download service. Hudson has also announced plans to release third-party titles originally released on the TurboGrafx system.

Bonk's Adventure was originally launched in Japan in 1989 for the PC Engine, and in the US in 1990 on the TurboGrafx system. It is a side-scrolling action game set in a prehistoric world, and many gamers may remember Bonk's signature head-butt attack.

We'll have more directly from Hudson's booth when E3 opens in LA tomorrow.

Pretty cool. I'm also fond of this piece of the article: "Hudson has also announced plans to release third-party titles originally released on the TurboGrafx system."

Retrogaming is back! Can't wait to play this and many other's I missed while growing up. Hopefully other games such as Castlevania X will be released also, which I believe was a very rare TurboDuo release back in the day.

What a cool little nostalgia trip for somebody like me that actually owned Turbographx 16. Maybe not a big deal to some but i think its pretty cool.
