Sega Genesis in 1080p? Analogue Mega Sg does just that
While we wait patiently for Sega’s in-house mini classic Genesis console, Analogue, the retro hardware manufacturer behind the Nt Mini and Super Nt, has turned its attention to Sega’s 16-bit console which will be re-made into the Mega Sg.
What makes the Mega Sg interesting is that Analogue isn’t going to emulate games like the SNES Classic Mini or the now-rumored N64 Classic. Instead, you’ll be able to use your old cartridges and controllers with the console that runs an Altera Cyclone V FPGA chip to faithfully replicate the hardware configuration of the old Sega Genesis, right down to the Yamaha YM2612 sound chip on board.
Even better, the console will be compatible with the Sega CD (or Mega CD), and Analogue has announced that it will develop adapters for the Sega Mark III, Game Gear, Sega MyCard, SG-1000 and SC-3000 sometime in 2019.
While Analogue looks to have created a faithful reproduction of Sega's 16-bit console, the Mega Sg will include a few modern conveniences, too, like an HDMI port for modern TVs, HD upscaling to 1080p and the option to connect wireless controllers (though none come in the box).
