Sega's Astro City Mini arcade cabinet comes with 36 games
Sega

With the Genesis Mini and Game Gear Micro, Sega is really into tiny consoles right now. It may have just outdone itself, however, with the launch of the Astro City Mini arcade cabinet (via The Verge). It’s a shrunk-down version of Sega’s famous 1993 Astro City sit-down arcade cabinet, complete with a tiny screen and microswitch controls.

It comes with 36 games, including confirmed Sega arcade launch titles 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.

Despite the small size, it offers a Micro USB and two USB-A ports for separate control pads or arcade joysticks, along with a headphone jack. If you’d rather play on a larger screen, there’s an HDMI output port, as well.

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. It’s set for release in Japan towards the end of the year and will cost 12,800 yen, or around $117.
