Sega comes with a mini version of the Mega Drive

Sega has announced that it will release a modern version of the Mega Drive. This new Mega Drive Mini will be released in honor of the thirtieth anniversary of the console and will have an unknown number of games on board.

The company announced this during the Sega Fes 2018 event, reports among others Kotaku. The mini version of the Mega Drive has to be released in Japan sometime this year, but Sega has not released any details yet. The original Mega Drive was released in Japan in October 1988, so a release in the autumn seems plausible. If and when the European release is planned, is also uncertain.
It is also possible that the retroconsole gets a different name, because according to Sega it is not yet fixed. A number of classic Mega Drive games are built in, but it is not yet known what it is going to be, and how many it will be.
Furthermore, Sega will release some of his classic games for the Nintendo Switch. This includes Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force 4 and Phantasy Star. There are also games for Android and iOS.
Earlier the company AtGames already came up with a new, compact version of the Mega Drive. Sega gave a license for this, and this device also came pre-installed with a number of games. Incidentally, it is also possible to put the original cartridges in, although AtGames does not guarantee that they all work.
