Sega reveal the Sega Mega Drive Mini, check out the trailer here


I never once used that Volume Control slider

At Sega Fes 2018, the developer has re-entered the console market... sorta, with the reveal of the Sega Mega Drive Mini, a compact edition of their classic home console that nestled snugly in many a bedroom in the early '90s.

The Mega Drive Mini, which is scheduled for release this year, is simply a fun-size version of the classic 16-bit machine, which first launched in Japan in 1988, before being rolled out globally over the following two years. No details have been released on price, features or, most importantly, which games will be included on the cute device.

You can check out a delightfully retro 15-second announcement trailer below. The Sega Mega Drive Mini launches in Japan later in 2018.
