[[File:Sega_32X.jpg|thumb]]The '''Sega 32X''', codenamed Project Mars, is an add-on for the [[Sega Mega Drive/Genesis]] video game console which allows the user to play 32-bit games. Its aim was to increase the lifespan of the aging Mega Drive/Genesis system, which was facing increasingly stiff competition from the [[SNES]]. While connecting it to Mega Drive/Genesis did increase its capabilities, reluctance to adapt due to the previous failure of the Sega CD and the upcoming Sega Saturn system led to low sales and a short lifespan.

[[File:Sega_32_CD.jpg|thumb]]In addition to regular cartridge-based 32X games, there were also a very small number of CD-ROM games for the 32X. These games were labeled with Sega Mega-CD 32X (Sega CD 32X in North America). As the name suggests, these required both the 32X and Mega-CD/Sega CD add-ons. Only five of these games were released in North America, only one of which was developed by Sega.
