Sega announces the return of Mega Drive in mini format


After the miniature versions of the Nintendo consoles (NES and SNES) and Sony (PlayStation Mini), it is SEGA's turn to revive one of their cult consoles.

SEGA's 16-bit console, marketed in Europe in 1990, will be available on September 19 and will have 40 games. The Mega Drive (Genesis in the US) will come with two joysticks (3-button), an HDMI cable and a USB cable. The sale price is set at 79.99 euros in the version of two controllers. A version with a single controller will be sold for about 56 euros.

The full list of games is not yet known, but SEGA has already confirmed some titles:

  • Sonic The Hedgehog 2
  • Dr. Robotnik Medium Bean Machine
  • Altered Beast
  • Comix Zone
  • Ecco The Dolphin
  • Bright Force
  • ToeJam & Earl
  • Space Harrier II
  • Castelvania: Vampire Slayer
  • Heroes Gunstar

SEGA had already sold the console license to manufacturers, who had invaded the shelves with mediocre products. With this new version, SEGA wants to play in the big leagues, with a mini console that has nothing to envy on the NES Mini and Nintendo SNES Mini. Good news for fans of the console, which celebrates 30 years this year (the console came out in 88 in Japan and 1989 in the United States).
