  • 20

Just when the fever for mini consoles (those replicas that flooded the market a few years ago, with reduced replicas of classic hardware that emulated classic titles from the NES, Super Nintendo, Mega Drive, Commodore 64, Amiga and many others) began to subside, Sega announces a new console. Actually, it is the European version of an already announced product, the Genesis Mini 2 that will be released in the United States. This is Mega Drive Mini 2, which we will have in stores on the same date, October 27.

The announcement also comes with a complete list of games, where there are several surprises. Among the 60 games, there are 12 from the commercially unsuccessful but highly memorable Mega-CD and 7 special games (new machine exclusive titles, previously unreleased, arcade adaptations and demakes).
