Sega Are Releasing A Mini Version Of The Mega Drive

Sega has fulfilled the dreams of nostalgic gamers across the globe in its grand unveiling of the Sega Mega Drive Mini at this year's Sega festival. As soon as there's any other details from Sega, we'll be sure to include them here, but in the meantime you'll have to content yourself with a snap from the Sega Japan Twitter feed.

SEGA promised it would have "HUGE" news at SEGA FES 2018 earlier today and it delivered, offering not one, not two, but four rather impressive announcements. It's not now known if this console is based on the AtGames hardware Sega spoke about importing into Japan recently, but externally, the system seems to be all-new.

Another major announcement is the remaster of the critically acclaimed Shenmue 1 and 2 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC just in time for the release of Shenmue 3 later this year.

Marking the 30th anniversary of the Mega Drive in its native Japan, the console sports the same design as the original model. Although it seems like this partnership might be to manufacture a Sega Retro console. It will be until then that a similar launch could take place.

What do you think?

Both the exact lineup and total number of playable games is now unknown.

This could be a change in direction from the company's long-standing relationship with AtGames, whose Sega Genesis Flashback console tried, and failed, to match Nintendo's efforts previous year.
