Sega has announced the Mega Drive Mini 2 console which is modeled after the Mega Drive. The new console is meant to be the modern version of the 1993 Mega Drive console. This console is very likely to give retro fans nostalgia.
In 2019 Sega released the first Mega Drive Mini Console which was a success so it is not surprising that Sega released another Mini console. The Mini Mega Drive came with 42 pre-loaded games. According to Nintendolife, the Mega Drive Mini 2 console was announced only for release in Japan on October 27. The Console will most likely be released in the west because the games that were announced for the console have English versions to it.
Mega Drive Mini 2 will cost 9,980 yen (around $75) but the cost will most likely change if it is released in the USA this is because of extra cost. The Mega Drive 2 Mini will come with 50 pre-loaded game titles. The Mega Drive Mini 2 will also have CD add-ons.
There have only been 11 confirmed game titles that were announced for the Mage Drive Mini 2. These retro games may not be familiar to some of the younger gamers or people who just started gaming. According to Nintendolife the 11 games that were announced are Silpheed(Mega CD), Shining Force(Mega CD), Sonic(Mega CD), Mansion of Hidden Souls(MegaCD), Popful Mail(Mega CD), Virtua Racing(Pre-Loaded), Bonanza Bro(Pre-loaded), Shining in the Darkness(pre-loaded), Thunder Force IV(pre-loaded), Magical Taruruto(pre-loaded), and Fantasy Zone(Pre-loaded).
Mega Drive Mini 2 also comes with a decoration kit that is meant to be more for the appearance of the Mega Drive Mini 2. Sega will be very busy this year with the new Sonic titles. Sonic Origins will be released on June 23 and Sonic Frontiers will be released later on in 2022. It has also been reported that Sega will be working on reboots.
