Hyperkin had announced The Mega 95, an entirely portable handheld system that plays original Sega Mega Drive (a.k.a. Sega Genesis) cartridges.

The device will reportedly support all officially released cartridges for Sega’s 16-bit system and is based on the MegaRetroN HD Gaming Console from the same company.

The Mega 95 will also come with a Switch-like dock allowing players to plug the machine into their television and connect additional controllers.

The machine can toggle between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratio an comes with a 5-inch display. Claimed battery life sits at ten hours. No pricing or release information at present.

The Mega Drive/Genesis remains Sega’s most popular gaming system with 35 million units sold. The console’s pack-in game “Sonic the Hedgehog” also launched that character and franchise.

The battle between it and the Super Nintendo (49 million units sold) dominated the gaming console space throughout the first half of the 1990s.

Hyperkin already makes a similar portable Super Nintendo machine (the SupaBoy) which currently retails for $120.
