The Sega Genesis is back in production!

Yippee!!! 

If like me you grew up in the eighties and early nineties you were either playing on a Nintendo or a SEGA console. I, as you may have gathered, was a SEGA man and if you’re like me you’ve probably just had a twinge of nostalgia reading that title. With the recent success of the ‘mini’ retro consoles, Brazilian manufacturing company – TecToy has decided to bring back the original, in all its glory – size and all!

This isn’t just a knock-off copy of the original console, it’s going to be a ‘total replica’ with Sega even giving the go ahead for these to be produced. There will be one change however from the original console, that is the inclusion of an SD slot, allowing you to play the 22 included games:

  • ALEX KIDD
  • ALIEN STORM
  • ALTERED BEAST
  • ARROW FLASH
  • BONANZA BROTHERS
  • COLUMNS
  • DECAP ATTACK
  • E-SWAT
  • FATAL LABYRINTH
  • FLICKY
  • GAIN GROUND
  • GOLDEN AXE
  • GOLDEN AXE 3
  • JEWEL MASTER
  • KID CHAMELEON
  • LAST BATTLE
  • OUT RUNNERS
  • SEGA SOCCER
  • SHADOW DANCER
  • SHINOBI 3
  • SONIC 3
  • TURBO Outrun

The console is available for pre-order here, however it does come with a heafty price tag, especially when you consider you’re still able to purchase a good quality second hand original console for a lot less. The retail price is, at the moment, stated at $138 USD – OUCH!
