Both the mini console and the handheld system come with 80 games pre-loaded, titles include classic such as Mortal Kombat, Sonic, Comix Zone, Golden Axe, and more. What this means is that you can start playing these classics as soon as you power up these machines.

Both Mega Drive products are now available for pre-order from FunStockRetro, priced at $65, they will begin shipping in October. Bear in mind that these devices are manufactured by At Games, a Chinese company that’s not exactly known for quality hardware when it comes to making retro consoles.
