Sega Unveils Mega Drive Mini, A Fun-Size Sega Genesis That Will Bring Back The ’90s
Everything old is new again. Whether its dad shoes from the 80s or Matrix phones from the 90s, products from the past are in high demand right now. The newest old school product revived is the Sega Mega Drive Mini, a miniature Sega Genesis.
At Sega Fes 2018, the Japanese electronics manufacturer unveiled their latest console, which is a throwback to one of the early and great gaming consoles. This 16-bit fun-size console pays homage to the Sega Genesis that launched in 1988, but it is much smaller. Fun fact, the Sega Genesis was originally named the “MegaDrive.” Sega will attempt to capitalize on the current love of all things nostalgic, much like the success that Nintendo has enjoyed with the NES Classic and the SNES Classic.
