Sega revealed this week that it will launch a "mini-console" under the name Sega Genesis the Mini 19 September 2019 Sega Genesis was the name of the 16-bit Sega console in the United States; Console name was Sega Mega Drive in Europe and other regions.
The company plans to release a system like Sega Genesis Mini and as Sega Mega Drive Mini; the name of the release depends on the region, and it seems that the only difference between the two systems.
Nintendo first launched another first mini-console, NES Mini, and it was a hit. The company launched the SNES classic, which has been successful for the Nintendo, and despite the fact that the company missed the opportunity to exit (in my opinion).
Sony, Playstation Classical console was not as successful, which basically boiled down to a weak lineup games console comes with and how emulation has been made.
And Sega? big Nintendo competitor, in those days, plans to release the first of other Sega Genesis Mini / Sega Mega Drive Mini in September 2019 the parties to license the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive console has been available for some time, but they never managed to meet customer expectations (many games bad emulation).
Sega Genesis Mini / Sega Mega Drive Mini
So, what do we know about the new console Sega?
The console comes with 40 games included, 2-wire control pads that look like classic Sega Mega Drive / Genesis controller, power cable and HDMI, to get started.
Sega has revealed 10 of 40 games, and plans to open another 30 in the near future. In the 10 games that we know about from the & # 39 are:
- Ecco The Dolphin
- Castlevania Bloodlines (Genesis) / New Generation (Mega Drive)
- Space Harrier II
- Shining Force
- Mean Bean Machine Dr. Robotnik in
- Toe Jam & Earl
- comix Zone
- Sonic the hedgehog
- Altered Beast
- Gunstar Heroes
Games are the same for both NTSC and PAL regions so far, and include several classic games already. Especially the inclusion of characters with Gunstar & # 39 is a welcome sign, because it is one of the best games for the system.
Selection includes classics such as, Ecco the Dolphin and Sonic the Hedgehog, arcade games like Altered Beast or Space Harrier, and even the Shining Force games strategy.
Games, which are likely to be discovered later include more Sonic games, Shining Force II, Phantasy Star and Golden Ax. I expect that the choice will be very close to what is available, as the Sega Genesis Classics for PCs and other home consoles.
Here are my wishes for the remaining 30 games:
- Beyond Oasis
- Contra: Hard Cops
- Earthworm Jim 2
- Ghouls «N Ghosts
- Golden Ax 2
- herzog Zwei
- Monster World IV
- Phantasy Star series
- Rainbow Islands Extra
- Road Rash II
- Shinobi series
- Shining Force II
- Sonic The Hedgehog series
- Streets of Rage series
- Thunder Force Series
- without scoring a point
- Ys series
Hopefully, the emulation will be better, and that the controller cables are long enough. Price certainly plays a role, as well as with the release.
the first release of Sega's console with the unfortunate death of the Dreamcast Sega, can certainly get a supporter Sega once again came out and may even lure some diehard supporter of Nintendo or Sony giving a mini-console to try.
The choice of the game looks good so far; I hope that Sega adds a sufficient number of multiplayer titles in the lineup, as there is not much else in the first ten games, the company reported.
now youInterest in the mini-console Sega you?
