The cabinet is an off-white color and features a bright green eight-way joystick and six arcade buttons on a black background. You can check out what the mini system looks like below.
Sega said that each game will be playable in its original format and can be played either on the cabinet’s screen or on a TV through an HDMI hookup. The system must be connected to a micro USB electrical connection in order to turn on, and it features an additional two USB slots for those wishing to connect more joysticks to the system. When turned on, the cabinet features a mini marquee that lights up.
No word has been given as to whether this cabinet is set to release outside of Japan. It will be available by the end of the year for 12,800 yen, which is currently equal to around $118.Read about Sega’s mini-sized Genesis release in our Sega Genesis Mini review and then check out these Arcade1Up cabinets for games like NBA Jam, Star Wars, and Burger Time.
