Amazon Just Let Sega Reveal Its Secret

As part of the promotion for Prime Day, Amazon showcased a portion of retro games. Sharp-eyed gamers noticed something amazing and got incredibly excited about it; a mini console, precisely referred to as the Sega Genesis Mini 2. As the news traveled across the country, many called it a confirmed leak.

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

In addition, with more power, more than 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 contain some hilarious reactions.

The blast is real!!

After the official confirmation, fans went crazy with the internet and started speculating about different theories about it. Some of these theories centered on games like Snatcher, Dragon’s Lair, and Space Ace, which fans believed would make a comeback. While these were some expectations, some demanded both a Saturn mini and a Dreamcast 2.

Another topic of discussion is whether the company plans to bring back ‘Blast Processing’. An infamous piece of technology used to promote the original Sega Genesis against Nintendo’s SNES in North America.

Nintendo dismissed the technology as a cheap marketing gimmick at the time. But after 34 years, Sega could prove Nintendo wrong — and this time for good. If so, the gaming industry could be experiencing a retro revolution.
