Sega Fes 2018 Announcements: Sega Genesis Mini Unveiled, 'Shenmue' Returns, And More

Having witnessed the success of Nintendo's mini consoles, Sega is following suit with their own, the Mega Drive/Genesis Mini.

SEGA Fes 2018 is a SEGA hosted event going on from April 14 to April 15 that pretty much showcases everything SEGA. In fact, the new Flashback model does work in HD, and, thankfully, has better sound, but it also has a library of one-note games that aren't considered Sega classics. Would you like the arrival of a Sega Genesis Mini?

This in-development system will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the system and be released in 2018. What is also interesting is that they deleted the tweet with the announcement. As news regarding the game is unveiled, Nintendo Enthusiast will have it covered.

The games, which will be released as Shenmue I & II, will be available both digitally and physically.

"Reborn to reprint the Masterpiece game [SEGA AGES] (Sega Ages) start for Nintendo Switch", a rough translation of the Japanese tweet reads.

Good evening, everyone. It's Friday night here in North America, but in Japan, it's a lovely Saturday and a flawless time for Sega Festival 2018. So far we know of Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star and Thunder Force IV, but two more titles have since been announced.
