    Default Astro City Mini Arcade

    http://segabits.com/blog/2020/07/07/...t-36-classics/

    I don't know about you guys, but if this thing comes here, I'm definitely getting one.

    Revenge of Death Adder & Dark Edge being 2 that people mention haven't been released anywhere outside their original arcade releases.

    Can't help but laugh at all the comments online from people complaining "Who cares about Sega arcade games?? Why aren't they releasing a Saturn Mini / Dreamcast 2?? Why is Sega so bad at business???"

    Sega is one of the greatest arcade developers ever. This mini is awesome.

    Apparently it will have 36 games in total, and microswitches. Seems well done, though like the GG Micro this is probably Japan-only. Hopefully there's more 90's games in the lineup.

    Neat but that list of games is stuff already re-released a hundred times. Nothing against it. Just see no need for me to get it. Maybe if it gets some Model 3 games or Planet Harriers.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Funny thing to say considering several of the ten games so-far announced have never been released outside arcades. And has the original arcade Virtua Fighter ever been re-released?

    There are still a lot more games to be announced - there will be 36 total games.

    This thing is being developed by Sega Toys, an independent company under the Sega corporate umbrella, so it won't have anything to do with M2 or anyone that worked on the Genesis Mini. I assume Sega Toys is outsourcing the emulation work, but it's unknown to whom.

    Finally an official home release of Revenge of Death Adder.
    I wonder now what is the 6 buttons for, maybe they're planning to bring games from other companies like SFA3 Upper for the Naomi.

    I think the odds of Sega putting games from competitors on this are just about 0. It's not like Sega doesn't have enough arcade games of their own or anything.

    The 6-button layout on the Astro City cabs is one of the default layouts (along with the 3-button layout), so it's good for recognizability. Dark Edge, one of the announced games, uses 5 buttons.

    Yeah, most of these games do not inspire me. It's basically the arcade versions of a bunch of games that were already on the Genesis Mini or in other collections.
