Furthermore, few details are known, but we can count on the Sega Mega Drive Mini to look very similar to the Mini NES and Mini SNES from Nintendo. At least fifteen games will be present on the hardware. The device will initially be available in Japan, but may also later on to other parts of the world. The Sega Mega Drive has been available in Japan since October 1988 and later came to North America and Europe, and has sold 30 million units in its life cycle.
