Following in the wake of mini versions of Nintendo’s NES and Super NES consoles, SEGA has announced that a miniature version of the SEGA Mega Drive (aka. SEGA Genesis in the U.S.) will be released later this year – timed with the console’s 30th anniversary.
Announced at this past weekend’s SEGA FES event, details are sketchy – especially as to cost, built-in features and what games it will include. SEGA is partnering with hardware manufacturer AtGames on the project as SEGA bowed out of the hardware manufacturing business in the early 2000s after the failure of the Dreamcast.
Both the NES Classic and SNES Classic sold millions of units, with stock of the latter selling out within minutes.
