Is it game enough to fill the Gerudo Valley-sized gap in our collective souls? Can it quench the unquenchable heart that lies still, awaiting the return of Link in Breath of the Wild 2?

With the announcement earlier today that Nintendo will be continuing its line of Classic Mini consoles with the release of a Mini Super Nintendo Entertainment System in September, comes word of two other HDMI-era classic console re-releases. With both an Atari 2600 and Sega Mega Drive Flashback coming in September.

Both classic consoles are priced at $149.95 AUD for the HD versions, but will feature a lot more games than the mini-SNES.

The Atari Flashback 8 Gold will come packed with 120 games, including Missile Command, Asteroids, Centipede, and Activision’s Pitfall!. But as the Atari 2600 is just about the oldest console ever created, and the games today do not hold up well at all, it's a little telling that the trailer for the console re-release only showcases the still sorta-playable Pitfall!.

The Sega Mega Drive Flashback is, thankfully, an entirely different story. With its impressive 85 built-in games featuring a number of classic games including the Sonic series, Mortal Kombat II, Shining Force, Comix Zone, Golden Axe, and many more.

Like with Nintendo's re-releases these Flashback consoles will look like the real deal, only smaller, and with wireless controllers modeled in the style of classic one-button joysticks and six-button game pads.
