You may have heard in recent months that SEGA is working internally on a Mega Drive Mini console, after a partnership with AtGames for the project went sour. Now it sounds like we’re a little closer to the micro-console’s release, and SEGA is polling fans on which titles they’d like to see included. There’s a catch, though…
The plan, according to SEGA Japan’s official Twitter account, is to only include one game per series. That means, it’s unlikely that we will see the entire 16-Bit Sonic back catalogue on the system. Which is a huge bummer, but on the bright side, we do get some small control over which title that is.
At the moment, SEGA is asking which game to include from three classic series: Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo and Shining Force. The options are below:
- Sonic the Hedgehog OR Sonic the Hedgehog 2
- Puyo Puyo OR Puyo Puyo Tsu
- Shining Force I OR Shining Force II
If you were to ask us, we’d probably plump for Sonic 2 – we love the original Sonic game, but it’s available on pretty much everything but a toaster these days (and no doubt someone’s working to make that happen). Sonic 2 is also quite ubiquitous, but less so than its predecessor – plus it’s got Tails in it.
