Nintendo Life wrote:The final batch of games for Sega's upcoming Astro City Mini console have just been revealed in a livestream, taking the total number of known games up to 36. It was also revealed that the system is getting a full-size arcade stick controller.

There will be 36 games on the machine in total, so we're starting to get a pretty good picture of the overall lineup. Here are the newly announced titles, as well as those we'd already heard about.

Announced 3rd Sept 2020:

Scramble Spirits
Ninja Princess
Arabian Fight
Sonic Boom
Stack Columns
Flicky
Quartet 2
Puyo Puyo Tsu
Thunder Force AC
Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars
Rad Mobile
Space Harrier
Seishun Scandal / My Hero

Announced 20th Aug 2020:

Bonanza Bros
Columns
Cotton
Crack Down
ESWAT
Gain Ground
Ichidant-R
Puyo Puyo
Shadow Dancer
Shinobi
Wonder Boy
Wonder Boy in Monster Land
Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair

Already announced:

Alien Syndrome
Alien Storm
Golden Axe
Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder
Columns II
Dark Edge
Puzzle & Action: Tant-R
Virtua Fighter
Fantasy Zone
Altered Beast

Just like SNK's Neo Geo Mini, this new console is set to come with its very own screen and will have all of these games pre-loaded; the remaining games making up the total of 36 will be announced at a later date. If you haven't already, you can go ahead and secure your pre-order right now.

Does the idea of having your very own Astro City cabinet at home have you positively bursting with excitement? Let us know if you'll be getting one of these with a comment below.

Just like with the Genesis/Mega Drive Mini, there's a cosmetic add-on kit:

A cancelled Golden Axe game is coming to Steam.



Free on Steam for 1 day!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1368 ... 1100__1100

At the beginning of this decade, SEGA Studios Australia was working on a series of reboots of classic SEGA IP, known collectively as the SEGA Reborn series. These included 2.5D reboots of Golden Axe, Altered Beast, and Streets of Rage, as well as an endless runner version of Shinobi, all encompassed in a universal hub world.

Sadly SEGA Studios Australia’s doors were shuttered in 2013, and with it the SEGA Reborn project was lost to the annals of video game history.

Until now.

On the occasion of SEGA’s 60th Anniversary, as a special treat to say “Thank You!” to our fans, SEGA is releasing a working prototype of Golden Axe Reborn, a single level created as proof-of-concept, or what’s known in the industry as a “vertical slice.” We’ve dubbed it, tongue in cheek, as “Golden Axed.”

Golden Axed offers a unique glimpse into the prospect of a project that could have been, and a rare peek behind the curtain at the sometimes tumultuous world of video game development.

We reached out to some of the original development team to bring this dusty gem to light, and they are proud that this project could be revived in some form to be shared with you, the fans.

*Available until 10am PST / 6PM BST October 19th*
