  1. Oh shit, here I was expecting the same rehash AtGames Genesis compilation #23452, but they actually got 3rd party stuff on here and dusted off some other Sega IPs from the era. Too bad this is probably just for the Japanese releases and many of the more interesting titles get removed/swapped out. I guess an official translation for Rent-A-Hero is too much to ask.

    This will be well worth of the money if they include some of the more pricey gems like Musha, Crusader of Centy, the Wily Wars, Pulseman, Alien Solider and Battle Mania: Daiginjō.

    Assuming the emulation is good…


    1. It’s got a functional cartridge slot my friend.
      I was watching the livestream on youtube when it was announced.


    2. Well, maybe.. and maybe not.
      The slot is noticeably smaller.
      I get the feeling they might be planning to sell “mini carts” for it.
      Which is still a lot better than Nintendo’s approach, which was a system that could not be expanded on at all, with you being stuck with the same library.

      If anyone knows japanese, they can help confirm this.


  2. I need street fighter 2. I also want cream the rabbit and at least one babylon rogue to be playable on team sonic racing.
