More Astro City Mini Details Emerge, First Look at Extra Controller

Wednesday, July 8th, 2020

The official Astro City Mini website has now gone live and with it we have the reveal trailer you can watch below, and our first look at one of the system’s extra peripherals which will be sold separately.

The Astro City Mini control pad will be sold for an additional 2,780 yen (approximately £20) and feature a d-pad instead of an arcade stick, as well as the standard 6 button setup.

We also have a more accurate release date of December 2020, but the console is still Japan exclusive at the time of writing. The same lineup of 10 titles from yesterday’s news leak are also confirmed. There was some confusion about whether it was Puzzle & Action: Tant-R or Ichidant-R that was making it to the system, but as previously reported it is in fact Puzzle & Action: Tant-R.

Pre-orders from Amazon Japan are now available but only the Astro City Mini ships worldwide. The control pad is Japan exclusive:

The control pad can also be ordered from AmiAmi who offer worldwide delivery. Thanks to DerSchwenki on Twitter for the information.

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

Retro Fighters were previously behind the successful Kickstarter campaign for the Next Gen N64 Controller, and the team are back with a new project to create a new and improved Dreamcast controller.

The Next Gen Dreamcast Controller features a variety of improvements that include a more ergonomic design, an improved analogue stick, a larger d-pad, additional shoulder buttons and a turbo function. The controller will be fully compatible with VMUs and vibration packs and is aiming to be produced and shipped by September 2019.
