Amazon just made Sega reveal its secret

As part of its promotion for Prime Day, Amazon showcased a section of retro games. Gamers with keen eyes noticed something amazing and became incredibly excited about it; a mini console, precisely referred to as the Sega Genesis Mini 2. As the news traveled around the country, many referred to it as a confirmed leak.

Eventually, the leak got real. Sega, an hour later, made an official website and announced the arrival of Sega Genesis Mini 2, verifying that the console will be released on October 27.

Additionally, with more power, over 50 classics, some Sega CD titles, and an unreleased bonus game are also included!

 

After that, the fans just lost it on Twitter and started retweeting the post, showing love and support for their beloved console.

These tweets also included some hilarious reactions.

The Blast is Real!!

After the official confirmation, fans totally went crazy on the internet and started speculating on several theories about it. Some of these theories were about games like Snatcher, Dragon’s Lair, and Space Ace, where fans thought that these games might return. While these were some expectations, some demanded a Saturn mini as well as a Dreamcast 2.

Another topic of discussion is whether the company is planning on bringing back ‘Blast Processing‘. A notorious piece of technology that was used as promotion for the original Sega Genesis against Nintendo‘s SNES in North America.

Nintendo discarded the technology at the time as a cheap marketing gimmick. But after 34 years, Sega may prove Nintendo wrong—and this time for good. If it does, the gaming industry may see a retro revolution.

There is no official estimate of how many of these consoles will be transported to the United States, which is unfortunate given that they are actually made in Japan.
