The Sega Genesis is coming back into production in 2017. Yes, you read that right. A Brazilian Company called TecToy will be bringing the new version of the Genesis out to market.

It’s not exactly how you might think, though. Sega’s officially licensed manufacturing partner, Brazil’s TecToy has developed a new Genesis console that not only looks almost identical to the original, but also has a traditional cartridge slot and SD card reader.

Why is a Brazilian company bringing back the old school console, you might ask. Well, because in Brazil, around 150,000 units of the SEGA Genesis still sell each year.

In addition to the likeness, TecToy’s Genesis has an integrated circuit which uses similar components to the original console. It also comes with the classic three-button controller and 22 games in the memory.

Here are the 23 games included in the system

Alex Kidd
Alien Storm
Altered Beast
Arrow Flash
Bonanza Brothers
Decap Attack
Fatal Labyrinth
Gain Ground
Golden Axe
Golden Axe 3
Jewel Master
Kid Chameleon
Last Battle
Out Runners
Sega Soccer
Shadow Dancer
Shinobi 3
Sonic 3
Turbo OutRun
