SEGA announced it's SEGA Genesis Mini/SEGA Mega Drive Mini retro console, bringing back forty 16-bit games in a miniaturized version of the original console.

The SEGA Genesis Mini (SEGA Mega Drive Mini in Europe) is based on the original Model 1 Genesis which launched in Oct. 1988 in Japan, Aug. 1989 in North America, and Nov. 1990 everywhere else, and is approximately 55% of the original Model 1 size.

The Genesis Mini comes complete with 40 games, Two replica three-button USB Genesis controllers, One USB to Micro-B power cable, One power adapter (North America only), and One HDMI cable.
