Sega first released the Genesis 30 years ago. Now it seems the company is taking a trip down memory lane and introducing a new revamped mini version of the original. Unfortunately for North Americans and the rest of the world, the new console will be available only in Japan.
That doesn’t mean people aren’t freaking out.

The announcement may have been in Japanese, but the excitement is real in any language.
Yo… @SEGA, is this real?? If so, will it be released outside of Japan for all to enjoy?

Mega Drive Mini. Nothing seems to be happening when I throw money at the screen. Why? https://t.co/7WDEvVAoBT

The rumors are true! Sega is going to release the Mega Drive Mini in Japan, powered by the latest AtGames technology. This same new and improved technology will find its way into the US and other territories later this year! #MegaDriveMini pic.twitter.com/4kbVKEz8oK

Honestly, Sega is hitting all the right buttons lately. Yakuza series, shenmue 1 & 2 HD, genesis mini, Sega ages, border break, new house of the dead, sakura wars…They're trying to appease fans for sure.

Although not everyone was swinging from the chandelier.
What’s the point of a mini Sega Mega Drive when I go into Target and get a Genesis Flashback right now for $40?
