Sega Is Prepping a Mega Drive Mini, but Who's Building It?

Sega Ages Bringing Classics To Switch Beginning In Summer 2018

The company also announced that it would be bringing a number of classic games to the Nintendo Switch this summer. Now that Nintendo released SNES Mini, Sega is going to fight with its own Mega Drive Mini.

Sega hasn't announced an exact release date or pricing details for the Sega Ages games, but the publisher shared a handful of screenshots of them, which you can take a look at above. Additionally, PC, Xbox One and PS4 players will get the chance to play Shenmeu I & II, which were originally released on the Sega Dreamcast console.

Sega announced its miniature classic console over the weekend, which will be releasing just in time for its 30th anniversary.

Sega has confirmed the Sega Ages program on Switch for western audiences. This will give Sega a huge advantage over Nintendo in terms of features.

At 4 or 5 the next morning, Constand awoke to find her bra up around her neck and her trousers half unzipped, she testified. At one point, she said, he went upstairs and came back with three small, round blue pills, telling her, "Put 'em down".

After Nintendo's success with the Mini NES and Mini SNES consoles, SEGA has made a decision to launch their own retro mini console in the form of the SEGA Mega Drive Mini.

There is a chance that Sega might create a console which will come with pre-installed games, download new games along with the ability to play old cartridges. It's great to see Sega systems getting so much love, especially on the Switch, but we've still got so many questions about what all the series will entail.

What we do know is that Sega is partnering with the classic gaming hardware manufacturer AtGames.

During Sega Fest, the Japanese software giant also revealed that it plans to bring classic Sega games to the Nintendo Switch. The Register would be more than happy to be surprised by an entirely new and fresh console, however.
