We wondered what might be next.

Well, today, we finally have the answer. Following in the footsteps of the moderately priced Super Nt, Analogue has unveiled the Mega Sg. Well, today, we finally have the answer. Following in the footsteps of the moderately priced Super Nt, Analogue has unveiled the Mega Sg. Coming in at £140 or $189 and due to ship next April, the Mega Sg is designed to play just about every pre-Saturn Sega game including Mega Drive, Master System, Game Gear, Mark III, SG1000, SC-3000 and more. The Mega Sg ships with a Master System adapter but the older machines will require a separate adapter which will be sold separately. It's even possible to connect a Sega Mega CD to the unit if you happen to own one. The only pre-Saturn console not supported by the Mega Sg is the 32X - though we wouldn't rule it out entirely just yet.

This is the FPGA based system, right?  If that's the case, is there a reason that they couldn't just release this as a firmware for the Super NT? 

 

Does the Super NT have an expansion port for connection to the Sega CD? 

 

Also. here's the cart adapters for SMS, Game Gear and what not compatibility:

Those run about $9.99 each and the unit comes with the SMS one.

Analogue announced that the Mega SG will ship early on March 25th.  I'm hoping to get my shipping notification very soon.:)

 

In the interim, they have revealed the new start up logo/audio for the console composed by Arca:

 

 

They've also released a video on the UI here which also includes the unreleased Genesis game "Hardcore" which they've renamed Ultracore:

As mentioned, the Mega SG will ship with the Sega Master System adapter to play SMS carts with the remaining add-on adapters coming later.
