The PC Engine CoreGrafx II (PCエンジンコアグラフィックス II) is an update to the PC Engine console, initially released in Japan in June 1991.

The CoreGrafx II was announced around the same period as the Super CD-ROM², and as with the original CoreGrafx and its relation to the PC Engine SuperGrafx, adopted its colour scheme. However, besides minor cosmetic changes and its lower asking price, the CoreGrafx II is almost identical to its predecessor. The only known difference is a return to the original HuC6280 CPU, as production for the HuC6280A revision (used in both the CoreGrafx and SuperGrafx) was discontinued along with the SuperGrafx itself.
