1UP: Bonk Teeters at the Brink of Extinction

If ever there was a mascot worthy of starring in a game called Brink of Extinction, it would definitely be Hudson's Bonk. The affable caveman was the de facto face of the NEC TurboGrafx-16 console, and he and his futuristic progeny Zonk starred in half a dozen 16-bit titles that ranged from good to great. And then, Bonk pretty much disappeared, only cropping up in a handful of releases for Nintendo's older consoles and the occasional port or remake. For all intents and purposes, Bonk was as wiped out as the dinosaurs he so determinedly head-butted in his Mesozoic travels.

The story is too old to be commented.
