Sega's Astro City Mini is getting a new version that features a vertically-oriented screen, it has been revealed.

The Astro City Mini V looks much like the original, but its screen is tilted 90 degrees to accommodate 'TATE' games. Taito is taking a similar route with its similar Egret II Mini, which is due out soon and has a screen that can be manually rotated 90 degrees depending on the game you're playing.

The Astro City Mini V will include the following titles from the likes of Toaplan, Raizing and (of course) Sega itself:
