New 16 Bit
Manufacturer: Nasa
Release Date RRP Code
Sega Mega Drive

The Nasa New 16 Bit is a Sega Mega Drive clone console distributed in South America by a company known as "Nasa". It was a reasonably popular alternative to importing an official console.

It was also sold in Slovenia from 1993 by Atlas.

Very little is known about the console, though it has a very peculiar shell half inspired by a Sega Mega Drive I and half inspired by an X'eye. It is assumed the system is incompatible with the Sega Mega-CD.

There is an 8-bit version which runs NES games called the "Nasa New 8 Bit". This version uses a very similar shell but has a different logo printed on the top of the unit.
