Kingway's Mega Drive clones were sold under many different brand names around the world, although Kingway's own trademark was "Saba" in English and 戰神 "Zhan Shen" in Chinese.
These consoles usually included the "UCS" "Universal Cartridge System" region-switching system which allowed cartridge region locks to be circumvented.
