TecToy unveils its new limited edition SEGA Genesis

Last week, TecToy published a video on its blog with several classic SEGA Genesis games and a countdown that directed the readers to an email list to be the first to learn about this announcement.

After a lot of speculation and rumors, the countdown has finally ended and TecToy has introduced its new Genesis. Disappointingly, the console won’t include HDMI output, but it will have a traditional cartridge slot and SD card reader, and it will look virtually identical to the Model 1 Genesis, as we expected.

It’s worth noting, this is not an emulator. The new Genesis has an integrated circuit which uses similar components to the original console, and it will come with the classic three-button controller, as well as 22 games in memory.

The console will cost approximately $124 (R$ 399), and it will be release in June 2017, can be pre-ordered on the official Tectoy Website.
