    Sega unveiled a miniature version of its classic Sega Genesis / Mega Drive console over the weekend.

    It's the console that was home to classic games like "Sonic the Hedgehog," "Streets of Rage," and "Golden Axe." And...

    Taking a page out of Nintendo's nostalgia-fuelled NES and SNES Classic playbook, Sega announced the Mega Drive Mini at Sega Fes 2018. The console is set to be a tiny version of the Mega Drive, the European and Japanese variant of North America's Sega Genesis. This isn't the first time Sega has released a classic game console though. Sega licensed its brand to hardware maker AtGames to produce Genesis clones with built-in games, resulting in the poorly reviewed Sega Genesis Flashback. 「メガドライブ」誕生30周年記念!

    Just like Nintendo before it, Sega is releasing a mini version of its iconic Mega Drive game system. The system is supposed to be available sometime in 2018 and the company also announced at least 15 classic Sega games will hit the Switch this summer to celebrate the system's 30th anniversary.
    Sega turned to AtGames to build the hardware according to this Facebook post. AtGames had previously built the shoddy Sega Genesis Flashback so hopefully this system will be better than that version. Nintendo paid attention to the details in its retro systems and it showed. The mini NES and SNES are...

    The 16-bit wars are back on, 30 years after they first started. Sega has announced its own miniature retro games console, presumably in response to the huge success of Nintendo's SNES Classic Mini. The Sega MegaDrive Mini (also to be known at Sega Genesis Mini in the States) was unveiled during its Sega Fest event currently underway in Japan. Like the SNES Classic Mini it will host a healthy selection of classic MegaDrive games, which you will be able to play on your modern flatscreen TV. Little else is known about the hardware at this time. Sega has said that it will be coming in 2018 as...
