Sega unveils the Mega Drive Mini in Japan

Sega unveils the Mega Drive Mini in Japan

I can remember the amount of hours I pumped into my Sega Mega Drive back in the day, or as it was known in the U.S. as the Sega Genesis.

This year was different, however, and there was something for everyone.

The biggest announcement so far has been the introduction of the SEGA MegaDrive Mini.

A substitute teacher at a CT high school was arrested after police said he was running a "fight club" at Montville High School. Labor Education spokeswoman Susan Close said in opposition the Liberals were silent on the $210 million cut from SA funding.

It's also worth noting that over the last few years we've seen third-party licensed mini Mega Drive / Genesis consoles, and it's not yet clear whether this is another example of the publisher's past collaboration with manufacturer AtGames, or something new and more in-house. The collection, which SEGA has called "the largest collection of retro classics on console", will include more than 50 games and release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Both games will feature Japanese AND English voiceovers as well as options for modern vs. classic controls and a fully scalable screen resolution. The full range of games it will offer is unknown (it seems SEGA was asking fans what titles they wanted?), but we do know it will be arriving in Japan in 2018.

Lastly, SEGA revealed that a new entry in the Sakura Taisen (known as Sakura Wars in the West) series is in the works. Multiple collections have been released for various consoles in different regions in the past, featuring games such as the Phantasy Star titles, Golden Axe, Panzer Dragoon, and others.

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