A few weeks ago Mega Drive Mini 2 (or Genesis Mini 2) was announced, a new miniature version that will include more games, and that it will even be compatible with Mega CD titles. Now the Japanese company has revealed more details about it.

Until now we knew that Mega Drive Mini 2 would arrive in Japan and North America on the same day. We bring you good news: the console will arrive in Europe the same day. That is, the next October 27th. And this is your new trailer:

As you can see, there is one aspect to clarify: Sega has finally opted for the Genesis Mini 2 design for the European edition. This means that the included controller will have 6 buttons..

However, you have nothing to worry about. Sega confirms that we will be able to connect the 3-button Mega Drive Mini controller (as it came to us in Europe back in the day).

In addition to knowing its release date, Sega indicates that reservations for the European Mega Drive Mini 2 open in September. In other words, the console can be reserved a month before its arrival in stores.
