SEGA Mega Drive will be available again in SA


Local distributor, Apex Interactive, has announced that the SEGA Mega Drive is back in South Africa.

The classic console will be available this month at a variety of retail stores for only R1,499 (and another 95 cents) and comes packed with two controllers and 80 built-in games.

For those of you old enough to remember the original Mega Drive, this is an opportunity for you to relive your childhood, while those wondering what the 'old folks' are talking about, you can grab the opportunity to enjoy some classic couch competition to see where many of the current favourites came from.

Some of the games that come with the console include the first three Mortal Kombat games, Shinobi III, Streets Of Rage (1-3), Sonic titles, Virtua Fighter II, Ecco and a whole lot more. And if the 80 games available out of the box aren't enough for you, then you can still use the original SEGA Mega Drive and SEGA Genesis games and cartridges from all regions. 

The current list of retailers planning on selling the console are Musica, Game, Makro, ToyZone, ToysRUs, CNA, TopCD and Incredible Connection, while Raru has it listed for pre-order at an even better than RRP of R1,349, with a release date is listed as 31 March 2016.
