This Sega Genesis Handheld Gaming Device Uses Real Original Cartridges
As if the Mega 95 wasn’t already a retro gamer’s dream, Hyperkin also took a page out of the Nintendo Switch’s book, including full TV connectivity on the handheld Sega Genesis. The system includes a USB-C dock that functions very similar to the Switch’s dock but without the bulkier design. When the Mega 95 is docked, it might as well be a Sega Genesis, displaying the games on a TV while using the original cartridges. Even better, it supports additional controllers, allowing everyone to relive the glory days of the Genesis.
The Mega 95 runs all classic Genesis games with built-in emulation hardware to give it a more modern update. While that may not sound like much, it further fuels the retro gamer’s dream as the hardware will provide the Mega 95’s emulation with higher quality than similar emulation software. Hyperkin hasn’t revealed the price for the Mega 95. However, the MegaRetroN HD Gaming Console, the brand’s Genesis-like console, retails for $59.99. Similarly, its SupaBoy Portable Pocket Console, its handheld version of the Super Nintendo, sells for $119.99, so the Mega 95 will likely be somewhere in between those prices.
