The SEGA Mega Drive Flashback Is Available To Pre-Order

AtGames’ Mini Mega Drive has arrived without the glamour and glitz we saw for the Classic NES Mini, but it’s HD and stacked with games.

We first reported on this Classic SEGA Mega Drive Mini back in April when pre-orders were available from French gaming site But now pre-orders have opened up in the UK through former high street store turned online entertainment retailer, Zavvi.

The system, which is a miniature replica of SEGA’s classic 16-bit console, is produced under license by AtGames who already manufacture and sell the Atari 2600 Flashback.

Stacked with 85 pre-loaded games including Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast and Golden Axe, there’s plenty to keep the retro SEGA fan happy. Even better though, the console will also play original Mega Drive and Genesis game cartridges.

Bundled with the Mega Drive Flashback come two wireless joypads and gaming on your modern flat screen television is possible thanks to an HDMI port allowing for 720p HD gaming.

The SEGA Mega Drive Flashback is available to pre-order from Zavvi now for £79.99 which includes a £10 discount for a limited time. The site indicates a release date of October 28th.
