This tentatively named "Mega Drive Mini" celebrates the 30 year legacy of the original Mega Drive, and will be releasing in 2018, also in its native Japan. We've asked Sega to clarify that and to confirm whether or not the Mini Mega Drive will make it to market in the west, and we'll update you here on Gamereactor as soon as we know more.
