Hu-Go! for MorphOS emulates the classic Turbografx16/PC Engine game console. The TurbografX was released in Japan on October 30, 1987 and in the United States on August 29, 1989. The TurboGrafx-16 was the first console to be marketed as a 16-bit console, though it is debatable whether it qualifies as a 16-bit console. While the central CPU of the TG-16 is 8-bit, the dual GPU processor setup and graphics card is 16-bit, and can display 482 colors at once out of a 512 color palette. It was the first console that came reasonably close to arcade-quality graphics, approaching that of a mid-range arcade machine at the time. Its 8-bit CPU was also faster than the 16-bit CPU of the SNES, though not the Mega Drive. NEC claimed that it had sold 750,000 TG-16 consoles in the United States, and 500,000 CD-ROM units worldwide, by March 1991.
