It’s shaping up to be a busy couple of weeks for the folks at Sega. The long-time gaming company has now decided to jump on the retro re-release train with the announcement of the upcoming Sega MegaDrive Mini. Chances are its response is going to be in-line with the Nintendo Classic Edition consoles and we expect stock to be limited once it finally hits store shelves later this year. But that won’t be the only way to play classic Sega titles on modern hardware in 2018.
Sega is planning on bringing a nice collection of its most iconic vintage titles to Switch as individual downloads via the Nintendo eShop this summer. expand full story
Nintendo has taken the gaming world by storm in the last few years, with not only the success of its Switch console, but also thanks to its retro-remake NES and SNES Classic. To no surprise, others have taken notice.

There are many ways to enjoy classic 8 and 16-bit games from the past, whether it be emulators or just dusting off the old SNES. There are also a number of newer dedicated consoles that can play old cartridges and run emulators, but none quite like Pitendo.
Combining the power and flexibility of a B+ Raspberry Pi inside a mini NES looking case, Pitendo offers much more than your average classic emulator console.

This is the first title in the series that was specifically designed for mobile from the ground up and promises an enhanced take on what made the original so addictive. Players get “one-touch, intuitive controls” that allow you to “speed, drift, whip around corners, weave through traffic, up ramps and into the air. The crazier you drive the higher your rewards.”
The original title was ported to mobile devices in 2012 and has received 4 stars from 7121 Ratings. The creator of the original Dreamcast Crazy Taxi game, Kenji Kanno, is back at the helm on City Rush alongside Hardlight Studios who were previously responsible for Sonic Dash and Sonic Jump.
