Sega has some of the best games ever released in the arcade, and many of them have never been released to the “home” market. Many of those games were released on the Sega Astro City two years ago. Back then, the device was limited to a Japanese release. Now, you can buy it on the US Amazon store or at Limited Run Games.
As you can see from the picture above, the Astro City has a 6-button layout with a joystick. Like other Minis, the device also has HDMI out and USB ports. I want to see which, if any controllers are also compatible with it. At this point, I do not want to resort to the wired “official” option that Sega offers. My plan is to try 8bitdo and Retroflag controllers and see.

I have since cancelled this order. At this time, I do not have the place for it, nor the time to play it. It would essentially end up sitting with the other mini-consoles I don’t play.
