The Amazon exclusive $99.99/£99.99 product had been due to be released on March 19 but has been pushed back after the coronavirus hit production and shipping facilities in China.
“Regarding the PC Engine Core Grafx mini console and its peripheral accessories, the manufacturing and shipping facilities in China have encountered an unavoidable suspension due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak,” Konami said.
“As a result, the delivery of all PC Engine Core Grafx mini products, which was originally scheduled for March 19th, 2020, will be delayed until further notice.
“We deeply apologize to our customers for the significant inconvenience, and we humbly ask for your understanding and patience while we keep our close attention on the situation,” it added.
“We are investing all of our efforts to deliver the PC Engine Core Grafx mini as soon as possible, and will provide further details on the deliver timing once confirmed.”
Nintendo recently delayed Switch hardware shipments to Japan and Korea due to the coronavirus, while a leading investment bank has claimed that the outbreak could result in next-gen console launches being constrained or even delayed.
