The FM Towns II is a follow up to the FM Towns (read this entry for more info).
The FM Towns II could read CD audio. 5 LED displayed the sound volume and two buttons was used to change volume.
Graphics video features were very powerful:
- One could display up to 800 sprite (16x16) on one video frame,
- Zoom and screen rotation were hardware features. Display could be rotated to any angle using one single command.
- Texts, Sprites and Graphics used three different RAM areas. They could be easily displayed simultaneously.
