Sega to release Mega Drive Mini this year

Sega to release Mega Drive Mini this year
From TechCrunch - April 16, 2018

Just like Nintendobefore it, Sega is releasing a mini version of its iconic Mega Drive game system. The system is supposed to be available sometime in 2018; the company also announced at least 15 classic Sega games will hit the Switch this summer to celebrate the systems 30th anniversary.

Sega turned to AtGames to build the hardware. AtGames had previously built the shoddy Sega Genesis Flashback, so hopefully this system will be better than that version. Nintendo paid attention to the details in its retro systemsand it showed. The mini NES and SNES are lovely throwbacks that bring the best of the past to the presentI just wish the controllers had longer cords.

Growing up I had an SNES because my parents thought Sega games were too violent. Basically, Killer Instinct instead of Mortal Kombat. I hope I can handle Scorpions finishing moves now.
