The Genesis/Mega Drive Mini has been delayed in Europe


Just like old times

Sega has regrettably announced that the Genesis/Mega Drive mini will have a delayed release in Europe and the Middle East. In an unintentional echo of the '90s, the mini console won't be seeing a release in those territories until October 4, 2019. As noted on the official Sega Europe Twitter account, "logistical challenges" are to blame for the decision. It probably comes down to a stock or manufacturing issue, which no one can account for.

This delay won't have an impact on other territories, which will see the device release on September 19, 2019. A few weeks delay isn't the worst thing in the world. If this allows Sega to provide ample stock and get everything in pristine order, then it's a sacrifice worth taking. I suppose it also completes the nostalgia effect by making Europe wait a bit. There's some humor in that, at least.
