Sega Announces the Mega Drive Mini

/ Apr 20th, 2018 No Comments

Sega revealed it will be releasing a miniature version of its iconic Mega Drive console in Japan later this year.

First released in 1988, the Mega Drive, or the Sega Genesis as it is known as in North America, is the third console Sega created following the Sega Master System. The 16-bit console famously helped usher in the fourth generation of home gaming systems and was used to launch many of Sega’s most popular titles and characters, such as Sonic the Hedgehog.

The announcement of the Mega Drive Mini was made at Sega Fes 2018 in Akhihabara, Tokyo. The release coincides with the console’s 30th anniversary.

No definitive release date for the Mega Drive Mini has been issued by Sega as of this writing.

Few details have been revealed regarding the classic console besides the fact that it’ll feature “memorable famous games” built into the console that were released during the run of its much larger parent console.

Development of the Mega Drive Mini is being overseen by AtGames. The company, who previously developed the Sega Genesis Flashback for North America, confirmed its involvement in a tweet, which has since been deleted. Shortly after, Sega revealed the console, stating furthermore it would be “powered by the latest AtGames technology.”
