Coleco Handheld Plays Sega Classics

 |  |  |  |  |  October 27, 2006

Coleco Sonic HandheldIt seems strange to me that a device called the “Coleco Sonic” would play classic SEGA games, but that’s just what this little portable system does.

Available for pre-order now from Target, the $49.99 Coleco Sonic handheld features 20 classic SEGA titles from the old 8-bit and Game Gear era, including:

  • Sonic Drift 2
  • Sonic Triple Trouble
  • Alex Kidd in High Tech World
  • Alex Kidd in Miracle World
  • Altered Beast
  • Assault City
  • Astro Warrior
  • Aztec Adventure
  • Bomber Raid
  • Columns
  • Ecco II: The Tides of Time
  • Fantasy Zone
  • Fantasy Zone: The Maze
  • Global Defense
  • Kung Fu Kid
  • The Ninja
  • Penguin Land
  • Quartet
  • Snail Maze
  • Super Columns

With the Coleco/SEGA branding weirdness going on, I find it especially ironic that the most comprehensive details can be found in the AtariAge forums.

[UPDATE: The same handheld can also be found under the “PlayPal” brand name in Canada, and looks like it can be played as either a portable or connected to your TV]
