Today Analogue announced its new Mega Sg console, which takes your old games and transforms them to high-resolution, high-fidelity, high-quality experiences on your modern TV. It connects simply via HDMI and can support more than 2,100 Sega Genesis, Mega Drive, and Master System cartridges.
The Mega Sg is a fantastic way to get some use out of the games you’ve saved from your childhood or picked up while thrifting. The console features original controller ports and comes with an adapter for the Sega CD. You’ll also be able to snag cartridge adapters for things like Game Gear titles once the console is out.
This is a huge win for old-school Sega fans, since they’ve been left in the dust when it comes to retro gaming. Nintendo fans have the NES Classic and SNES Classic, PlayStation fans can look forward to the PlayStation Classic, and up until now, Sega fans have received the short end of the stick. While this isn’t an official release like the aforementioned consoles, the officially-released Sega Genesis Classic received ultimately poor reviews. Analogue is a well-known and trusted third party, and the Mega Sg is an addition to its highly-praised console lineup.
The new console is available in four color schemes, and it will sell for $189 when it launches in March of 2019. You can pre-order yours now and it will ship in April of 2019.
