Good planning news Retrogaming: Sega Astro City mini game console can be pre-ordered
Note for retrogaming enthusiasts, return of a legendary terminal, the Sega Astro City! Currently available for pre-order from Fnac, it will be available from May 28th.
You miss the arcades, like the restaurants, and that’s understandable. In addition, with the current trend, we will no longer find that piping hot atmosphere in these rooms, where sweat, cold tobacco and youthful scents mix with the smell of the machines that run all day.
In this very special atmosphere, the reputation of games is established and reversed. Dragon’s Lair, Ghost’n Goblins, Mario, there are many who have looked through this box and seen reckless gamers put their nickname (inventive or non-inventive) on the high score table.
Since that time we’ve inherited certain games, entire genres, a taste for difficulty, and the ability to put small changes aside in order to play. And above all, we can count on the return of a legendary arcade machine, the Sega Astro City. Back in a mini version, the latter is inspired by the original, which had its heyday in the 90s. In Japan alone there are no fewer than 50,000 terminals installed, a real success!
For the 60th anniversary, Sega is offering the miniature version in 1/6 format. You will find the sensations of yesteryear with its 4 inch screen, joystick, 6 buttons and 37 games already installed
