SEGA Mega Drive mini comes with 40 games, out in September SEGA's new retro console will launch in September across US, Europe, and Japan

The console will be branded as Genesis in the United States and the Mega Drive in Europe and Japan, and each region will probably have a different selection of titles (Japan's lineup looks absolutely stellar with hits like Castlevania Bloodlines, Sonic 2, Shining Force and the hard-as-nails Comix Zone).   SEGA confirms the Genesis and Mega Drive Minis will have state save features for easy progression, and we could get visual modes to boot. There's no word on who's actually making the device, though. SEGA previously said AtGames, who manufactures the rather janky retro emulator systems sold in stores, won't be making the Genesis Mini.   Internal specs should be fairly similar to a Raspberry Pi and shouldn't stray too far from the NES/SNES Mini internals.   SEGA's micro-consoles will have two SKUs: a $60 system with one controller, another that comes with two controllers for $80.   The systems will be available worldwide on September 19, 2019.

Very excited for this. Can’t wait.



Can't find this to be interesting if it doesn't play genesis carts. I have close to 80 games carts, so I cannot buy another genesis that wont allow me to play the games without all the weird emulation stuff because it's annoying when there's sounds/graphical errors due to emulation. Mega SG is looking good, but I'm trying to avoid it because I don't want to pay 200 dollars for it.

There shouldn’t be any weird issues as it’s being reported M2 is handling it. M2 Co., Ltd. (Japanese有限会社M2エムツー) is a Japanese video game developer and publisher, best known for handling emulation of re-released games, such as some Sega Ages titles, Virtual Console titles for Nintendo systems and the 3D Classics series for the Nintendo 3DS. M2 has spent much of their recent time working for Konami, creating not only arcade compilations, but also an entirely new set of games for WiiWare under the ReBirth moniker.

It's nice, I suppose, but Genesis games have been available on every possible platform for a long time, how much need for this is there?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I don't recommend most of them because the games almost never run properly, and most of the games can't be brought back due to licensing, so there's always going to be games you're never going to see released on these clone consoles.  Without a cartridge slot, there's not much of a reason to getting on.  Even less if the emulation is also bad.



is there really intrest for this?

Just saw your post above.... lol basically my throughts.



As the Sega Megadrive Collection is a thing (and an awesome thing), I will not need it. But I think it is nice for people who want the physical device.

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Might be interesting, but I'll wait for the complete list of games.

Also Sega, where's the Master System mini???
