The PC Engine Software Bible is a comprehensive listing of games for NEC's PC Engine console, released in 1987 in Japan, and two years later as the TurboGrafx-16 in America. On this site you will find reviews, screenshots, videos, music tracks and many more extras.

This all started out in 1997 with a photocopied fanzine called 'The PC Engine Bible'. It was an A-Z listing of many of the games I had played, or knew of, either from memory or using a handy little reference book I picked up from a Japanese bookshop in London (which listed almost every game that had been released up to the end of 1992). The fanzine eventually developed into a simple online version, and has since been through several iterations. Including the original paper copy, this is now version 5 of the list, and is the most accurate and comprehensive to date. A site like this is never completed, and I will continue to add new videos, reviews, scanned artwork and anything else that may be of interest to the PC Engine community.

Please note that reviews an opinions are generally based on playing these titles as a non-Japanese speaker.

Disagree with something I've written? Then do something about it! We all have different views on different games and genres, so to get a wider range of opinion of PC Engine games, I'm inviting you to write your own reviews. Submissions may be edited for spelling or language.

If you spot an error - be it some incorrect information or even just a typo, please let me know so I can correct it as soon as possible. If you think game details are incorrect, please make sure that you research carefully beforehand - try not to base your information on suppositions or something your cousin's mate's friend said. And remember, other websites may be wrong too.

Please note: If you email me, please mention the PC Engine in the subject line of your email, or else it may be filtered as spam.
