NEC PC Engine LT

NEC PC Engine LT

We take a look at NEC’s portable, but not mobile, handheld console, the PC Engine LT.

The LT fitted a slightly strange niche in the gaming market, coming halfway between NECs CoreGrafx home console and their GT handheld.  It had a similar footprint to the diminutive CoreGrafx and had a built-in screen like the GT (although larger and far better quality).  But the LT was not mobile like the GT, there were no batteries, you needed to have a PSU plugged in.

In this sense it’s more akin to the Nintendo Wii U in spirit, more about freeing up the household TV than taking games with you.
