The controller features an analog stick, throttle, and the ability to swap the two for left or right-handed players.
The Cyber Stick will release on October 27 – the same day as the mini console – and retail for 19,800 JPY, or around $150 / £120.
The Mega Drive Mini 2 will be released on October 27 in Japan and will cost ¥9,980 ($75). Sega has yet to confirm a western release.
The first Mega Drive Mini was released in 2019 and included 42 games, with the libraries differing per region. It included new ports of Darius and Tetris, which had never been released before.
