Following its announcement earlier this year, SEGA Japan‘s Mini Mega Drive Genesis has now been delayed until 2019. It was previously scheduled to release this year, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the original SEGA Genesis.

This news broke soon before the announcement of Sony’s upcoming miniature PlayStation Classic, which will feature titles like Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, and Crash Bandicoot. Peculiarly, Nintendo recently announced that SEGA Mega Drive Classics, a collection of SEGA games released for consoles, will be ported to the Nintendo Switch. The title includes Sonic the HedgehogStreets of Rage, Altered Beast, Shinobi and several other retro games.

Although details on the Mini Mega Drive, including what games will come installed, are scarce, SEGA has now decided to also release a Mini Genesis simultaneously worldwide and says the delay is to ensure the product is at its highest quality.

The release of retro games on mini retro consoles began with Nintendo and the release of its NES Classic. The success of that and it’s successor the SNES Mini has pushed game companies to utilize their older IPs for fans hungry for nostalgia.
