|Hudson Entertainment Sound|
The Hudson Entertainment Sound format is similar to NSF in that it stores machine code ripped from TurboGrafx-16 game ROMs. Takashi Mamiya created the format in 1999. Playback requires the emulation of several TurboGrafx-16 components including the main CPU and the audio chip.
