  • Sega confirms Mega Drive Mini retro console remake

Announced during Sega Fest 2018 yesterday, classic games from the SEGA Genesis and Master System will be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime this Summer.

According to Famitsu (via Forbes), development of the new Mega Drive Mini will be handled by Sega.

These include company mascot platformer Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force 4, Phantasy Star and more to be announced.

Officially unveiled at Sega FES 2018 on Friday, the "Mega Drive Mini" - it's a working title - will launch in Japan first according to Polygon, with "the U.S. and other territories" set to follow later this year. It seems likely we'll see similar fare here, though that hasn't stopped me from maniacally daydreaming of seeing Skies of Arcadia show up on the Switch in this fashion (it absolutely won't).




Lastly, SEGA revealed that a new entry in the Sakura Taisen (known as Sakura Wars in the West) series is in the works.

This could be a change in direction from the company's long-standing relationship with AtGames, whose Sega Genesis Flashback console tried, and failed, to match Nintendo's efforts past year. Nintendo fans will know M2, as they were responsible for the really good SEGA 3D Classics series on Nintendo 3DS.

With Nintendo enjoying huge success with mini versions of the NES and SNES, it makes sense that Sega would resurrect their 16-bit pride and joy for a whole new generation. and those of us who grew up worshipping the original.
