As an alternative for those who did not own a PC Engine and a Super CD-ROM² unit (and for the company to release some of the pressure from Nintendo's fast-selling Super Famicom, NEC released the PC Engine Duo in 1991, for ¥59,800. A hybrid system capable of playing both HuCards and CD-ROM² games, the Duo was another technical marvel from NEC (JVC and Sega soon copied this concept for the Wondermega/X'Eye).

Known in North America as the TurboDuo.
