The 2004 New 8 in 1 is a multicart made for the Sega Mega Drive by an unknown company in 2004. As most other multicarts, the label pictures cover arts of the games, and the games have the copyright claims removed. The plastic shell is poorly made, and it's very difficult to keep it up together sometimes. A feature of this cartridge is that more than half the games (5/8) are developed by Sega itself.

Title screens Edit
Card, PCB & Label Edit
- The covers on the cartridge label are poorly custom made, except for the Chase H.Q. II and Robocop 3 ones.
- In After Burner II, the "Sega Enterprise" logo in the aircraft carrier at the beginning of the first stage is covered by grey tiles, leaving just the "Enterprise" word.
- The ESWAT cover on the label, except for the title, is completely unrelated with the actual game. The image shows a soldier in the desert, when the right protagonist is a city robot police officer.
- The two parts of the shell seem to be produced in two separate times.
- Unusually, the back of the shell features all the text included in a normal Mega Drive cartridge (Including the Sega logo and the "Made In Japan" writing), and strangely not including any typo. Even the various patents' numbers are also rewritten without any error.
- The screws in the back shell are fake: they are just molded in the plastic.
- The small PCB is attached to a piece of plastic to hold it in place. (See pic)
