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

The miniature version of the classic 16-bit Sega system has been given a 2018 release date, although it's unclear if it will launch in the United States and Europe. The guesses were made under the assumption that SEGA would actually announce something worthwhile, but as stated before, SEGA typically doesn't have many exciting announcements during its FES events. It's not now known if this console is based on the AtGames hardware Sega spoke about importing into Japan recently, but externally, the system seems to be all-new. Specifically, the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Both games will feature Japanese AND English voiceovers as well as options for modern vs. classic controls and a fully scalable screen resolution.

To commemorate the console's upcoming 30th anniversary, Sega took the opportunity to unveil its own miniature "classic edition" version of the legendary 16-bit Genesis (or, as it was called in the rest of the world, the Mega Drive). Not being a Shenmue fan, my eyes are on the other game announcement: Sega Ages for Nintendo Switch. 15 games were announced to be coming to the service, with only Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, and Thunder Force IV being named specifically.




The fourth announcement is a brand new Sakura Taisen project that will be faithful to the DNA of the storied series.

As for this entry, all we know is that it will be set in Taisho era 1929.
