After Nintendo with NES and SNES Classic, and Sony with a PlayStation Classic, Sega also goes into the dance market of a retro console, which has been growing in recent years.
First, Sega published an “Mega Drive Mini” an earlier year, with an expiration date of the 30th anniversary of the console, but it had to be canceled at the end of 2018 as result of retro subscription credit secured by Sega from American company AtGames. So, Sega again commissioned the development of the Japanese M2 console, with a closing date of 19 September. It is currently unknown when the miniature rat is released (especially Mega Drive) in Europe.
