Older gamers might remember the old days of SEGA. SEGA used to be the main Nintendo’s competitor in the console market but in recent times the company has shifted its focus to developing and publishing games. However, this year’s SEGA Mega Drive Mini release marks their re-entry to the hardware market.

According to a Tweet by the company, the mini version of SEGA Mega Drive will return on September 19th, 2019 and will feature 40 of console’s legendary titles. First 10 games have already been announced. The list includes Altered Beast, Castlevania: Bloodlines, Comix Zone, Dr Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, Ecco the Dolphin, Gunstar Heroes, Shining Force, Sonic The Hedgehog, Space Harrier II, and ToeJam & Earl. More to be confirmed fairly soon.

So if you’re a fan of retro and haven’t had the chance to play any of the games upon their release in the 20th century you should definitely pre-order your SEGA Mega Drive Mini console, because the quantity might be limited. In order to do so, head over to the official SEGA page for more information.

For those who didn’t know, SEGA Mega Drive was originally released back in 1988 in Japan. The console has made its way to North America a year later, and two years after that, in Europe and Australia as well. It was very popular for that time, mostly because of one particular video game character we know to this date – Sonic The Hedgehog.
