Last year, Sega had premiere her own miniature retro console to be able to compete with rival Nintendo and Sony, but unfortunately the issue was delayed. Now the company at this year's Sega Fest announced that the Genesis Mini / Mega Drive Mini will be released in the US and Japan on September 19.

Apparently, this console will have different, local versions of specific games. Among the 40 games it will have, the company has confirmed (at least in Japan) some classic games such as Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Shining Force, Gunstar Heroes and Comix Zone, Space Harrier II, Puyo Puyo 2, Rent-a-Hero, Castlevania Bloodlines and Powerball.

Like in Mini, the new console will be powered by a microUSB and will have an HDMI output capable of up to 720p . The controller will be with six buttons and will be one of the Genesis gamepad, preferred by most gamers. It will support saving at any point within a game, which Sega said could make it easier to play some games you never managed to finish in the 90s.

There will also be a reset button, but it won't work the same as it did on the original system. Also, like the other retro consoles, there doesn't seem to be support for downloads, and apparently there isn't cassette, such as Analogue SG.

So far, we know only the prices that will apply in Japan and the console will cost 6.980 yen (about $ 60) with a control or 8.980 yen (about $ 80) with two controls.
