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 retail price, the CoreGrafx II is functionally identical to the original CoreGrafx (which in turn shared a similar build to the original PC Engine primarily so it could interface with hardware such as the CD-ROM²).
