Sega has been out of the mainstream console space for a long time, as we fans know all too well. While we also know the company has seen some major successes in development and publishing since that point, there’s also an undeniable if nebulous appeal towards the systems of old. The Genesis/Mega Drive, the Dreamcast, and even the Master System were all personal favorites, but they’re difficult systems to find today. Hardware decay and the cost of collector’s items make buying original systems untenable, but this isn’t the only way forward.
With the right knowledge, you can still find unofficial Sega handhelds today. Taking a look at a couple of standout options, we want to explore how emulation can be a great way forward, both for classic Sega titles and experiences far beyond.
