AtGames will launch a new Genesis system in September. Modelled on the original MK1 Genesis system, it will feature 85 pre-installed games, a pair of 2.4Ghz wireless controllers, a cartridge slot for original software, 720p output over HDMI and the ability to suspend your game at any point and resume later on. Last year, the existing AtGames Mega Drive saw a sales jump 400 percent in the run-up to Christmas in the UK. The Genesis was Sega’s third console and the successor to the Master System. Sega first released the console as the Mega Drive in Japan in 1988, followed by a North American debut under the Genesis moniker in 1989. In 1990, the console was distributed as the Mega Drive by Virgin Mastertronic in Europe. The price is expected to be around 79.99 Euros.
