  • SEGA Mega Drive Mini via SEGA on Twitter

Officially unveiled at Sega FES 2018 on Friday, the "Mega Drive Mini" - it's a working title - will launch in Japan first according to Polygon, with "the USA and other territories" set to follow later this year. More details are expected to be revealed soon. In competitive terms, Sega Mega Drive had difficulties in Japan due to the popularity that Nintendo had in that country thanks to the success of the Famicom and later with the Super Famicom, however, in America it was a commercially successful console, just like in Europe.

Next, following in the footsteps of the Sega Genesis Mini, SEGA announced the coming of the Mega Drive Mini.

That's unlike other third-party models available on the market right now.

The pint-sized feat of engineering will likely replicate the HDMI connection used in NES and SNES Mini consoles. It's interesting to note that both Phantasy Star and Thunder Force IV will not be included on the upcoming Genesis Collection for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The model in the image above, with a cleaner version shared by Sega on Twitter which you can see below, don't resemble the AtGames variant. I think it's safe to say Sonic, Golden Axe, Altered Beast, and Mortal Kombat games will make an appearance.

The collection will also feature online multiplayer, Trophies/Achievements, saves and more.

That's on top of lesser known titles such as the excellent Light Crusader and Alien Soldier, not to mention the brilliant Gunstar Heroes and Dynamite Headdy.
