Developed by Blaze, the Sega Megadrive Handheld (Streets of Rage Special Edition) comes replete with a bright LCD display and built in speakers. This new portable offers two of the most popular action titles from the Megadrive Streets of Rage series. While it wasn’t mentioned which sequels would be included with the system, hopefully Streets of Rage 3 made the cut. As a sequel, Streets of Rage 3 offered large, arcade-like sprites and smooth gameplay.
The Megadrive handheld also includes Virtua Fighter, Golden Axe 2, Shadow Dancer, Sonic & Knuckles, Alex Kidd, and Ecco the Dolphin (among others). Not a bad selection; and with a total of 18 built in games, Blaze promises something for everyone.
There is no mention of a cartridge slot, so we can only assume there isn’t one. The lack of a cartridge slot may sound unattractive to some gamers, but for others looking for retro on the go, this sounds like a promising prospect.
The Blaze Megadrive LCD Handheld Console is available now from www.blazeeurope.com and all leading video game stores for just £34.99.
