It's fair to say that AtGames doesn't have the best reputation in the realm of clone consoles - which is somewhat ironic when you consider the company has been doing this for years now. Its systems are typically marred by poor emulation, terrible AV output options and ropey audio, but it's trying to clean up its act with its 2017 line of systems - which include the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive if you're in Europe or Japan) Flashback.
Modelled on the original system's case design, this revised edition boasts 720p output, screen filters, save state support and even the ability to rewind gameplay when you make a mistake. As you can see from the footage above, the system also features an updated menu system which shows cover art for the included 85 games.
Here's the official PR:
The all-new Sega Genesis Flashback has a stunning new design, reminiscent of the original console, and features 85 built-in games as well as an integrated cartridge port that plays almost all of your favorite Sega Genesis and Mega Drive original cartridges. Built-in all-time favorites include the Sonic™ series, Mortal Kombat ™series, Phantasy Star™ series, and Shining Force™ series games. Two new high performance 2.4ghz wireless controllers, styled after the Sega Genesis originals, are included, as well as two legacy controller ports for optional wired gamepads. Other new features for the Sega Genesis Flashback include 720p HDMI output, scan line filtering, and a save/pause/rewind feature for every game.
Naturally, YouTube isn't always the best way to truly gauge the emulation performance of such systems so we'll reserve ultimate judgement until we've had the chance to get our hands on the machine. Expect a review in the near future.
