Megadrive Mini delayed..

Sega has confirmed the delay the 2018-announced Mega Drive Mini (I would’ve gone with ‘Mini-Drive’) to a new release date somewhere in 2019.

According to the company press release, while the device was in development for commercial release in 2018, the response to its announcement was considerably larger than Sega had predicted overseas, which as a result has changed plans to a new simultaneous worldwide release. While Sega were at it, they have ditched the usual third party production option for a device this sought after, and are now heading the design of the device with the original team at its core, as well as cooperate with Japanese developers proven in software development.
