Prototype HDMI SEGA Nomad by Retro-Bit Being Showcased at CES

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

UPDATE 11/1/19

Retro-Bit have confirmed this prototype does include the additional controller port on the bottom of the unit, but it is just obscured in the photos they uploaded.

ORIGINAL STORY

A surprise announcement from CES! Retro-Bit have revealed a prototype of a new SEGA Nomad with HDMI out.

The original SEGA Nomad was a North American exclusive portable Mega Drive that featured an LCD display, 6 button control setup, an extra controller port and support for composite out video.

There aren’t many details on this new Nomad outside of the news of it including a HDMI out for high definition displays and the 3 images at the top, which also show a PAL/NTSC switch for playing games from multiple regions. We don’t know if the emulation is accurate, the screen is improved or even if another controller port is included at this time.

It is also worth nothing that the new Nomad is a prototype and has likely not been greenlit by SEGA themselves. Retro-Bit are likely showcasing this prototype to gain interest in developing the product at a later date. This is a very interesting development that we hope gets approval from SEGA. It would be fantastic to own a modern portable Mega Drive solution without having to dish out the sort of collector’s prices that an original SEGA Nomad now sells for.

Hyperdimension Neptunia/SEGA Hard Girls Crossover Game Announced for PS Vita

Sunday, March 15th, 2015

SEGA Japan and Compile Heart have revealed Neptunia vs. SEGA Hard Girls; a new crossover game for the PS Vita.

If you are unfamiliar with the 2 titles, Hyperdimension Neptunia is an action RPG which features a fantasy world themed around video game consoles. The game takes its moniker from the cancelled SEGA Neptune console and various SEGA characters cameo in the series. SEGA Hard Girls is a short animated series based around SEGA’s various game franchises and features characters who are based on SEGA consoles so it’s a pretty good fit for the world of Hyperdimension Neptunia.

There is currently no screenshots or footage available for Neptunia vs. SEGA Hard Girls but we’re expecting it to be an action RPG in a similar style as Hyperdimension Neptunia. More details as we get them.

There’s no word at this time what the motion sensor and touchscreen are used for but I’m guessing the motion sensor is used as an alternative control scheme (tilt to steer).
