Return of the Megadrive

Gareth Edwards

One new gadget sighted at this year's ongoing Japan Toy Show should please 16-bit fans: Sega's bringing back its Megadrive, after a fashion, as a low-priced controller-shaped device that includes six classic games including Sonic and Altered Beast. Those who've taken more than a cursory look around sites like ThinkGeek will doubtless be familiar with the existence of this kind of thing, but this may be the first representative of the 16-bit era to hit the market. It's scheduled to reach stores in September, priced at Y4,179 ($38). Looks like they'll be selling it outside Japan too, given that all the game names Sega's quoting are the English versions.
