From Sega’s official Chinese distributor AtGames comes another hot gadget that will bring all your fond memories of Sega’s 16bit era back to life.

This official product contains twenty hot built-in Mega Drive games and in addition to this, the console is compatible with original Mega Drive Genesis games from Japan, USA and Europe.

This is made possible by the NTSC/PAL switch installed at the back of the console. Most US NTSC Genesis and Japanese Mega Drive games can be played via the consoles’s NTSC mode, while European Games can be played in the PAL Mega Drive mode.

Please note that, however, newer titles which are region protected, such as Comix Zone are not compatible with the console and due to region encoding, incompatibility issues may also occur with some other titles.
