The Fujitsu FM Towns Marty is a console from the fifth generation of video game consoles. The console was launched in Japan on February 20, 1993 and never saw a global release. A variant — the FM Towns Car Marty — was designed to be installed in an automobile and included a built in navigation system with audio and video guidance, and could also be detached from the car and played at home. Marty is more of a computer rather than a console and sported several excellent arcade ports as well as IBM DOS ports. Marty is unique compared to FM Towns computer as it has 'pad-to-mouse' emulation in the BIOS reducing the need for owning a mouse. Some games however aren't compatible with 'pad-to-mouse' emulation and require the original mouse. Marty unfortunately has S-video and Composite as the only available video output.
