Sega's 'Sega Genesis Mini' Console Launches with 40 Games on September 19

Retro gaming is not only alive and well, it is downright thriving, at least for Nintendo. We can now add Sega to the list-Sega announced at Sega Fes 2019 that it is launching the Genesis Mini this fall, and for real this time.

Sega first announced the Mega Drive Mini at last year's Sega Fes, and it was originally supposed to be released in 2018 only in Japan and based on the same AtGames-developed technology that powered the USA exclusive Genesis Flashback HD. Sega is itself planning and releasing the console.

In North America, the Genesis will be sold for $79.99 and in Europe the Mega Drive equivalent will cost €69.99 or €79.99 if you want two controllers.

The Sega Genesis Mini is a miniature replica of the original 16-bit Sega Genesis video game console that took the market by storm in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The Genesis Mini will launch with 40 games, including Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Castlevania Bloodlines, Comix Zone, Gunstar Heroes, Powerball, Puyo Puyo 2, Rent-a-Hero, Shining Force, Space Harrier II, Madaou Monogatari, ToeJam & Earl, and Wrestelball. Both of the systems in these regions come packaged with the original 3-button controllers (see below). Later, it delayed the unit into 2019, saying that, to achieve a higher level of quality, it would drop AtGames, develop the software for the system in Japan and release the unit worldwide.

Sega will release the console in Japan with one controller for 6,980 yen (about US$63), and with two controllers for 8,980 yen (about US$81). The console will include an HDMI connection and a USB port for charging.
