Analogue, the Seattle-based retro console maker, has announced its latest project: The Mega Sg.

Using a technological setup similar to its Super Nt released earlier this year, Analogue says the Mega Sg will be able to play every game from the Sega Genesis, Mega Drive and Master Drive systems, and capable of outputting video from all of them in 1080p with zero latency when it launches in April 2019.


Tomorrow from 4:00AM to 12:00PM AEDT, Kirk and I will be streaming video games. We'll be speedrunning Super Mario World, killing bosses in Mega Man X, and trying to figure out if Red Dead Redemption is a good enough real-life version of Westworld.


The Mini SNES has been out only a week and already there are videos circulating about how to add your own games. Like the Mini NES before it, this new retro device seems prime for emulation, and progress is moving very fast.


The bad news is the chances of snagging a Super Nintendo Classic at retail are pretty slim right now, and auction site eBay is probably your best bet if you want it "right now". The good news? The average price of a SNES Classic on eBay is only $US164 ($209), $US80 ($102) less than the NES Classic in the days after its launch.


Thanks to the wonder that is Australia Post, most people who pre-ordered the Mini SNES will get their retro console sometime today. But as was the case with the Mini NES, the question remains: how good is the Mini SNES's emulation?


The SNES is old. As much as I love the first Mario Kart, going back and loading up the Mode 7 graphics of Bowser Castle 1 feels quaint. A series of interviews with Nintendo developers from that era though serves as a good reminder of just how advanced the technology was at the time.


The SNES Classic is finally out. Whether you got one, already had a Raspberry Pi, or decided to give into the hype and go secure an original SNES through Craigslist instead, you should probably take a moment to bask in the awesomeness of the console's best speedruns.


It's Super Nintendo Classic day, which means it is time for us to crack open the console, take a long hard look at the list of games that comes with it, and RANK THEM ALL.


The Super Nintendo Classic is a miniature blast of nostalgia, a sleekly packaged piece of hardware that will transport you back to the days of Dunkaroos and denim jackets. Although one could certainly complain about some of the choices Nintendo has made, this is a mostly great package that highlights how well the 16-bit era's classics hold up, especially compared the generation before.
