SEGA’s Astro City Mini V, a pint-sized arcade machine that is a 1/6 replica of the iconic Astro City machines that dominated the arcade scene of the 1990s, has been given a full release across European territories today.
Already warmly received in North America, the SEGA Astro City Mini V console is a labour of love that combines impressively crafted form factor with top notch emulation to provide a unique home arcade experience that recreates the heyday of the early 90s arcade shoot em’ up scene with aplomb.
In particular, the 4.6-inch LCD monitor, ball-top joystick and action buttons which perfectly replicate the authenticity of those classic Astro City arcade machines will be extensively used too, thanks to the selection of 22 different arcade games and shooters that make the most of the SEGA Astro City Mini V’s genuine form factor.
Brilliantly, the HDMI port and cable that the SEGA Astro City Mini V console comes with also means that the console can be hooked up to your TV or monitor display, allowing you to play any of its games on a HDMI compatible display of your choosing.
