Last month we shared the news that Retro-bit would be creating USB, bluetooth and classic controllers for the SEGA Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast, with the products debuting at CES 2018. Well CES 2018 is happening now, and images of the Retro-bit SEGA products are online! The community section of the RGT 85 Facebook page and Madlittlepixel show us just what we can expect from the new line of products. After the break, let’s check out the images and see what we can see!
The SEGA Genesis will have a slick new SEGA Genesis six button Bluetooth Arcade Pad for use with PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and the original SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive using the Bluetooth Receiver (sold separately).
Also available for the Genesis is the standard Genesis/Mega Drive six button pad as well as a USB version. Retro-bit are also releasing new AC Power Adapters, Stereo Audio S-Video Cables and standard AV Cables.
The SEGA Saturn will see a Bluetooth Control Pad for use on Steam, PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and Saturn with the Bluetooth Adapter. Also available will be a USB Control Pad.
The blurry pic above also shows a variety of Saturn controllers for original hardware, including an all black version, a black with colored buttons version, a white version and a gray version. Extension cables and AV cables are also going to be available.
The Dreamcast will see a Bluetooth Controller, presumably for Steam, PC, Mac, iOS and Android, as well as compatible with the original Dreamcast hardware via a Bluetooth Receiver (sold separately). Also available will be a USB controller, and controllers for the original hardware in black (without the SEGA Sports branding) and the standard white. A VGA box is being released, as well as S-Video cables and power cables.
All-in-all, this is a very exciting partnership which will lead to some really awesome controllers. I know I want to get my hands on all the bluetooth controllers as well as extra white and gray Saturn pads and the black Dreamcast controller. Bye bye, money! No clue what the cost is, but we’ll be sure to share more as we hear it!
