Paprium now playable on Analogue Mega Sg thanks to firmware update

Watermelon Games recently released Paprium a couple months ago, and while many have been happy enough the game was finally completed, others were frustrated with the game’s lack of compatibility with “clone systems,” like the Analogue Mega Sg.

In fact, there were even certain original Genesis/Mega Drive hardware that weren’t compatible with early versions of the game. Thankfully, the issue has at least been rectified with Mega Sg compatibility as Analogue just released a new firmware update (version 4.8) that finally adds compatibility for Paprium!

If you need help updating your firmware, Analogue has an update page that walks you through the process.

The full release notes are below:
