MZ 2500

The successor of the MZ 2200. The characteristics, especially the graphic characteristics, are impressive, it is one of the most powerful of the MZ computer series.

It takes from 2 to 8 seconds to define P.C.G (user generated characters, similar to sprites) with the Sharp X1 serie, while it takes only 0.5 seconds with the MZ-2500.

It has features in common with the X1 series and will be replaced with these computers.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


Hi there, I noticed the sound for the MZ-2500 is incomplete.

The MZ-2500 contains a YM2203 (OPN) which offers 3 each of PSG and FM channels.

Hope this helps!
