It was announcing the SEGA Mega Drive Mini


About the short message service Twitter SEGA has announced that on 19.09.2019 with the SEGA Mega Drive Mini an official miniature version of its 16-bit classic from the late 80's will be published. The only advance so far: Currently, the release date only applies to Japan and North America.

Given the great success of the other manufacturers' mini-consoles: apart from the more than dubious PlayStation's re-expression last year, it was only a matter of time that exactly how SEGA would expand the market through a practical reminder of its iconic interior console , SEGA announced the project for the first time at FES 2018 and now, on September 19 of this year, the date of publication is fixed, at least for Japan and North America.

The SEGA Mega Drive (Japan), better known in the North America than SEGA Genesis, appeared in 1988 (we had to wait two years in Europe) and allowed to enjoy a great variety of games of # 39; arcade in televisions for domestic channels. More or less in time for the 30-year console of 16-bit, now the SEGA Mega Drive Mini is released with HDMI capacity. With a width of 154 mm, a height of 39 mm and a depth of 116 mm, SEGA promises the nostalgia of the palm. According to the SEGA Japanese website, a classic controller with the family configuration of 3 buttons and a cable length of about two meters plus includes a USB power cable * (standard A): the USB power supply necessary for start-up is not included – as well as an HDMI cable that allows the output of the image with a resolution of up to 720p. In addition, there will also be a package with two drivers. While SEGA for the package with a controller estimates 6980 yen (about 56 euros), the price of the console with two controllers is 8980 yen (about 72 euros).

In addition, there are 40 pre-installed games, both the originals of SEGA and those of third parties, of which ten are announced; remains to see if the selection of games for Europe will be adjusted again:

  • Altered Beast (SEGA)
  • Castlevania: The New Generation (Konami)
  • Comix Zone (SEGA)
  • Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine (SEGA)
