The 156 Arcade Game is a Firecore-based Sega Mega Drive mini arcade handheld distributed by, among others, Golden Security. It includes 156 built-in games.



156 Arcade Game handheld box contents.

The 156 Arcade Game is aesthetically similar to DreamGEAR My Arcade Handhelds. Four variants are available; the most popular featuring Street Fighter artwork. It has a 2.8" backlit color TFT screen, six action buttons, three additional buttons (reset, start, and volume (also Start), joystick, power switch, volume control, single speaker, and an A/V-out port.

The 156 Arcade Game runs off of a 600mA lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The distributor claims its battery life is 2 hours. Its box includes the 156 Arcade Game system, battery, AV cable, user manual, and USB cable.

The system appears to be based on PXP3's hardware platform, as the game list and game chooser music is similar, although with different graphics and game order. Additionally, it also uses GBA SP batteries. However, the 156 Arcade Game uses a 3.5 mm headphone jack for A/V out, while the PXP3 used a 2.5 mm port.

The side artwork is taken from Street Fighter IV, as with many multigame systems of the period.
