SEGA announces Astro City Mini Arcade, To Get 36 Classics


Out of the blue SEGA Toys has announced the Astro City Mini Arcade via a interview with Game Watch Impress in Japan. You can read the interview where they talk about a lot of the Astro City Arcade cabinet history which was a cabinet released only in Japan so forget about this coming to the States (Hey, Sega!).

Some of the confirmed titles already include:

  • 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
  • Altered Beast

The cool thing about these titles is that this will be the first time Dark Edge and Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder will get home releases! According to the interview this project started at SEGA back in 2018! It has also been confirmed that SEGA-AM 2 legendary composer Hiro will be making the sounds for this Mini console. There will also be support for HDMI out, microswitch joystick, replaceable balltop and even support for external controllers. The device will be pricey coming in at 12,800 yen ($119 USD), but according to the interview its made out of the same material as the actual cabinet. What do you guys think?

[Edit: Looks like Game Watch took down the interview because it was accidentally shared early. Oops.]

CES 2020 is happening now in Las Vegas, and while the trade show is no longer the top dog when it comes to video game reveals there was a bit of BIG SEGA news that hit late yesterday. Arcade 1Up, the company behind smaller sized home arcade cabinets, have inked a deal to release SEGA games and their first release is a doozy. If you watch our SEGA News Bits videos, you’ll know that one of our most often requested rereleases is the 1992 classic Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder which never saw a home port.

Now, Arcade 1Up will be offering fans a chance to bring the game home in arcade cabinet form as the SEGA lineup features Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder, Shinobi, Altered Beast, Wrestle Wars, and Golden Axe. If the emulation is perfected, this could prove to be a must own for SEGA fans! We will share more news as we hear it.
