Sega arcade mini

Post by DPrinny » Tue Jul 07, 2020 6:24 am

Anybody else getting "Mini" burnout?https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2020/ ... rcade_gems?

The NeoGeo mini was of "Questionable" quality, (Naff joystick) hoping this isnt the same

Why not just announce this first?

This one could be good, but it might just be a little too small for european hands. Neat design, even if these are far from my favourite arcade cabs, at this size they're reminiscent of the old tabletop games like Astro Wars.

These are not really designed for serious play, id still love it if they just filled it with loads of STV games.
Hoping for Viruta Fighter 2 at least, the first has its place in history, but two is where it became good

The design is pretty cute, and the fact that this is the first time a couple of the titles are officially getting a home release adds plenty of value. Might not be an instant purchase for me but we will see.

Love these 'Grandstand' style games. Might be tempted to get one, joystick seems a decent size

Worth it for the Golden Axes and VF, imo

It really is anything but the Saturn and Dreamcast isnt it? :lol:

Seriously, its nice to see Revenge of Death Adder FINALLY get some kind of release, even if its for a nearly £100 mini arcade. Still, if it turns out decent (Surly M2 would work on the emulation like they did with the MD Mini right?) I would be more interested over the Game Gear Too Mini.

Revenge of Death Adder puts this on my radar. ABOUT TIME!

Also, it has HDMI-out, so the small display isn't a major issue (if the physical controls don't turn you off).

36 games to be included though, and they're going to be arcade games so it shouldn't be loaded up with the same old crappy Mega Drive ports or games that have been re-released to death on compilations...hopefully.

Would love to see AB Cop, Turbo Outrun, and Outrunners.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

The NEO GEO Mini had ports for controllers. Might be a bit much, but what if you had a steering wheel add on or to option to use any wheel with the right port (USB or whatever.)?

That could open up Outrun, SEGA Rally, Crazy Taxi, etc.

Hell, gimmie a trackball for SEGASonic the Hedgehog! :lol:

Good point, you need 3 for multiplayer, meaning most owners having to buy 3 and thus make it more reason for SEGA to do this. :lol:

Cant remember where I read it, but apparently they was going to try to put it on one of those Sonic compilations in the past, but they didn't want to try to convert it to be used on a pad as a part of the fun would be missing

The design is really cute.

Just a question though - is it free play and unlimited credits? Asking for a gamer who's rubbish at games and used to modern quality of life saving conventions...
