It's been so long since announcement I don't think this or the game gear mini are coming west 

 

Yeah. But a real shame as I'm not going to spend hundreds of Euros (import fees are ridiculous (in Belgium), importing an astro mini would add another £80-90) on a Japanese language-only arcade mini.

As someone already pointed out, there's been absolutely no word on a possible W release, so I wouldn't count on it.

 

It's interesting to see how many of the games on this mini have already been released in the Sega Ages series on the Switch. Maybe the ones that still haven't are on the way as well? Which would go some way of lessening the frustration of this most wonderful piece of hardware not getting a W release.

 

I'd really like to have a go at the arcade versions of Shadow Dancer and LBP Cop, I mean, E-SWAT again.

The last list of games have been announced:

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

They also showed off the Astro City arcade stick - looks nice enough, but it's the same price as the Astro City Mini, and has just as many buttons (meaning it'll be a bit naff for anything other than PC due to no Guide/L1/L2/R1/R2 buttons and the like)

Really interested in the stick, but I don't think I can justify it at all. I have a Brook Universal Board in one stick and the Retro Board in another, so I'm covered for anything I want to use an arcade stick with, and I have pretty easy access to every game in the collection (even the ones that haven't been ported before). Is there anything I'm overlooking, apart from the fact that it looks gorgeous? :P

 

Edit: I don't know why I assumed it would have the games (like the Capcom or Neo Geo sticks). The Amazon description makes no mention of them, so I guess it's purely for plugging into the Mini cab?

There has been a dummy unit set up in a local Joshin for a month or two. Recently I got the urge to go up to it and had a wee fiddle. I hope it was just a visual mock-up with none of the actual components because the buttons and stick had zero response at all. Pushing down on the buttons I was expecting a clicky feel, but it was more like squeezing a damp cloth. The stick reminded me of an old Atari joystick in terms of response. Put me right off, so if the intention was to get sales it failed.

I figured that might be the case, so I bought a controller too.

 

I'm only getting this for Golden Axe.  Will probably never play any of the other games on it.

You’re not going to play Crack Down?!
