Sega is all about tiny consoles right now, but now it is offering something new with the launch of the Astro City Mini arcade cabinet. It’s a mini version of Sega’s famous 1993 Astro City sit-down arcade cabinet, with a tiny screen and microswitch controls.
This cabinet comes with 36 games, including Alien Syndrome, Alien Storm, Golden Axe, Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder, Columns II, Dark Edge, Puzzle & Action: Tant-R, Virtua Fighter, Fantasy Zone and Altered Beast. Those are some decent and classic games for Sega fans.
It may have a small size, but it offers a Micro USB and two USB-A ports for separate control pads or arcade joysticks, and a headphone jack. If you want to play on a larger screen, there’s an HDMI output port, as well. This is bound to be the next popular mini that fans will be after.
Though it offers an arcade-like experience and arcade titles, Astro City Mini will let you save game progress like Sega’s other mini consoles, which is a cool feature. It’s set for a release in Japan towards the end of the year and will cost 12,800 yen, or around $117. Hopefully, other countries will have a chance as well.
