The Sega Genesis Mini is an upcoming ‘mini’ version of Sega’s classic 16-bit video game console, the Sega Genesis, which was originally released in 1989. The Sega Genesis Mini is the latest console to join the expanding roster of ‘mini’ console versions of iconic and retro video game consoles from big video game publishers, such as Nintendo’s NES Classic and SNES Classic and Sony’s PlayStation Classic.

The Sega Genesis Mini will be plug-and-play right out of the box, meaning that despite it being modelled after a decades-old console, this version will function like current-generation consoles. The Sega Genesis Mini package includes the Sega Genesis Mini console, two classic wired 3-button control pads, USB Power Adaptor, Power Cable and HDMI Cable.
