Sega reveals Mega Drive Mini console

Sega reveals Mega Drive Mini console

SEGA has announced that SEGA AGES will release on Nintendo Switch, news that was shared at SEGA FES 2018 in Akihabara, Japan. This tentatively named "Mega Drive Mini" celebrates the 30 year legacy of the original Mega Drive, and will be releasing in 2018, also in its native Japan.

The Sega Genesis console was a massive global success. Sega Ages will be a collection of classic SEGA games that can be individually purchased, instead of the boxed collection coming to other platforms.

Sega revealed that it is developing the Mega Drive Mini retro console (tentative name) and it is scheduled to debut this year, at least in the Japanese market.

She delivered the little girl early on Thursday morning local time, at a hospital outside Cleveland, Ohio, according to TMZ . This is the first child for Kardashian; Thompson has a 1-year-old son, Prince, from a previous relationship.

Sega Ages is not a new series. With games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, and Golden Axe in its extensive library, the Genesis became one of the most beloved consoles of all time. It seems likely we'll see similar fare here, though that hasn't stopped me from maniacally daydreaming of seeing Skies of Arcadia show up on the Switch in this fashion (it absolutely won't). Nintendo fans will know M2, as they were responsible for the really good SEGA 3D Classics series on Nintendo 3DS.

The miniature version of the classic 16-bit Sega system has been given a 2018 release date, although it's unclear if it will launch in the U.S. and Europe.

For those unfamiliar, AtGames is a company known for manufacturing a range of "flashback" consoles, including the Genesis.
