I can totally admit when I’m wrong.

Not long ago, I wrote a lighthearted post about mini consoles I’d like to see.

Way back in October 2016, I plunked down a little over 40 bucks to back a Kickstarter project for a newly-developed PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 game titled The Henshin Engine, which at the time was slated for a March, 2017 release. Welp, in April of 2018, the game finally shipped, and with a newly-modified title of FX Unit Yuki: The Henshin Engine. I’ve been playing it since I received my copy, so let’s check it out!
