Sega jumps on the mini console bandwagon


Sega announced final week that it changed into as soon as making a original mini console in step with the Genesis, sometimes called the Mega Drive. It’s known as the Mega Drive Mini — why someone handed on the chance to name it the “Mini Drive,” I produce now now not maintain any idea.

Sega joins its broken-down rivals Nintendo and Atari on the mini console market, and the Mega Drive Mini appears to be like to be to be patterned directly on those consoles, in that its little and incapable of taking part within the identical media as its normal version.

Curiously, the firm making the Mega Drive Mini, AtGames, announced its involvement in a tweet it has since deleted. The firm made one more SNES Mini-esque console final year, the Sega Genesis Flashback. NintendoLife reports there changed into as soon as an overwhelmingly detrimental response to the deleted tweet, and as well you’re going to be ready to now win several on Twitter denouncing the firm for the it appears to be like middling quality of the Flashback.

As effectively as to its Mini Drive, Sega announced it’d be releasing a Sega Ages retro game sequence for the Nintendo Switch. To this level, the true video games it’s announced for this sequence are Sonic the HedgehogPhantasy Star, and Grunt Power IV. Optimistically it’s now now not striking all of its correct video games within the sequence, or getting a Mega Drive Mini is going to seem reasonably redundant. Per Forbes, Kagasei Shimomura, the producer of the sequence, said he’s hopeful the Ages sequence will within the spoil embrace Dreamcast and Saturn titles.

The console is launching later this year. Sega hasn’t given an legitimate date, however the console’s thirtieth anniversary is in October, so as that sounds like a seemingly candidate. Per Polygon, It’ll be launched first in Japan, then everywhere else at a later date.
