Rejoice Sega fans as the time has come for all the accessory makers to finally pay attention to the Genesis/Mega Drive and Saturn! Retro Fighters, the company who put the modern spin on the classic N64 controller, have announced a new product in the form of the BrawlerGen. The BrawlerGen takes the signature Retro Fighter design we have seen in both the Brawler64 and Jab Gamepad and applies it to not only one but two Sega consoles. That’s right the BrawlerGen is compatible with not only the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive but also the Sega Saturn by utilizing a dual plug! The features for the BrawlerGen as listed on the official Retro Fighters site are as follows.
First controller to feature a 2-in-1 connector that is compatible with both Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Sega Saturn
Compatible with the original Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Sega Saturn, as well as most third-party systems
Ergonomic and comfortable modern design
High Quality and responsive D-pad
Comfortable and responsive analog stick – compatible with Sega Saturn and Genesis/Mega Drive games
Repositioned Mode button – compatible with 6 button and 3 button games, Genesis/Mega Drive games
Extra long 10′ cord
Overall I am stoked to see another option coming out for replacement Sega controllers especially with how awesome the Brawler64 is for N64 games (30+ games beat with it and counting)! The BrawlerGen is slated for a June 10, 2019 release date with a price of $39.99. Pre-orders are now available through the Retro Fighters website.
What do you all think? Is this controller something you would be interested in picking up?
