Video Games: Mega Drive mini 2 Coming October 27th

The wave of nostalgia or discovery for the little ones continues in the world of video games. On Monday, Sega announced that its Mega Drive mini 2 will be available in Europe on October 27th.

What is a concept? In recent years, several manufacturers have updated older home consoles such as Nintendo’s Nes or Super Nes. They are smaller than the originals, adapted to current connections (with high-definition HDMI and USB), and all games are integrated without the need to insert a disc or cartridge.

Sega already released in 2019 a mini version of the Maga Drive, the legendary console of the early 1990s that ran Sonic, the platform game with the famous blue hedgehog, or Ecco, its dolphin game.

Mega CD with games included

In 1993, the Mega Drive 2 went on sale, lighter, more compact and with a slightly different technical architecture. At the same time, the Mega CD appeared. This expansion allowed more complex and more realistic games to run, and the CD-ROM media had more memory and offered better sound quality and more beautiful visuals. However, Sega made a special choice: to limit to 64, like the console, the total number of colors that CDs can display.

Mega Drive mini 2 combines all of this into one object. In addition to console games, a selection of CD games will also be available. You will have to pay €110 to take advantage of this, which is €109.90. At this price, the console comes with a six-button controller. The standard Mega Drive controller has three but not all games. However, Sega indicates that the three-button controllers that came with the first version of the Mega Drive mini are compatible.

About sixty games are available with Mega Drive mini 2.
