Out of nowhere it seems SEGA has officially revealed the brand new SEGA Mega Drive Mini 2, a remastered version of their old retro console with 50 installed games ready to be played.
This is very much like their original Mega Drive Mini which was launched in 2019 and featured just over 40 games. Our high score of 8 out of 10 in our Mega Drive Mini review goes to show how much we loved it.
It sold in large numbers and did relatively well which SEGA was happy with, so happy in fact that they’re back for round two.
The Mega Drive Mini 2 was revealed during a SEGA livestream from Japan, and it was one of the main subjects of the stream.
