Almost every teenager of the 1990s dreamt of owning a game like Nintendo and Turbografx-16. Though Turbografx-16 started losing its popularity after the Super Nintendo console that premiered in 1991, it still exists as a memory in thousands of people who want to recapture their childhood memories. The list of accessories required to play the game may be limited, but it is indeed difficult to find the right one.
The specifications of the AC adaptor
There can be a fire hazard if the specifications of the AC adaptor do not match with that of the console's requirement. It is better to get a console with the official NEC AC Adaptor to avoid any misadventure with the Turbografx-16. An AC adaptor with a specification of 10.5 volts and 730 milliamps is specifically suitable for the gaming console.
The perfect controller for your game
It is a challenging task to find the matching game controller as they are rare and quite overpriced. You can manage the Turbografx-16 system with more available and affordable options like a PC Engine controller. There are individual alternative controllers for the game. It is preferable to get a PC Engine controller instead of considering the alternatives due to longevity concerns.
Whether to go for the official RF switch or not?
Most of the other gaming consoles have an RF switch. The RF switch of other consoles can be put to use in the Turbografx-16 console as they use the same connection and can be interchanged. The only thing to check is if there is a single RCA plug into the console.
The use of Turbostick
The turbostick is nothing but a joystick controller. The turbostick replicates arcade games' control system, featuring a bright-red joystick, input buttons, speed control buttons, and turbo switches. The Python 4 produced by Quickshot and the Stick Engine by ASCII Corporation are alternate joystick controllers similar to turbostick.
