Sega Announces Mega Drive Mini Console, Coming To Japan This Year

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...this-year.aspx

During its annual Sega Fes event in Japan, Sega announced a new retro-style console called the Sega Mega Drive Mini.

The console will launch in Japan this year. The company has not announced whether the console will make its way to the West, though it seems likely it will, though as the Sega Genesis Mini.

We also did not get any information on which games will be included in the console.

Sega recently licensed the console's appearance to AtGames for the Sega Genesis Flashback console, which included 85 games but suffered from both hardware and software issues.

I only had an SNES back in the day, but I'd be interested in this.

They do but it's a third party one.

Grain of salt, but I've seen claims that this Genesis/MD Mini is actually using the same technology from those ATGames flops.

Soo... if so it serves no purpose other than I guess the fact that the shell will be designed/produced by Sega?

Well then I'll be keeping tabs on these claims and in time, we'll find out if they're true.

ATGames confirmed it.

To be fair, I like the two Atari Flashbacks I have of theirs, and so do many other people that I know. But I've never seen a kind word toward their Sega-branded products.

One of the biggest reasons for that is the sound quality. First clip is a real model 2 Mega Drive/Genesis and the second is an ATGames Sega Genesis Classic Game Console Deluxe.


I don't think I'll ever understand why Sega is so terrible at re-releasing their own games.

I still own my Genesis, but if I didn't, I'd get one at a retro store than buy a wannabe third party mini version.
