With the release of the SEGA Mega Drive Mini coming this month, a little while back SEGA put out a call to fans to share some of their 16-bit Mega Drive memories. Today comes a very cool video compiling some of these, which includes appearances from a few people that made the Mega Drive what it was - with key members of 1990s SEGA US team Tom Kalinske and Al Nilsen.
For me, and this more a sign of the times, back in the SEGA versus Nintendo days I was in the latter camp. Team Super NES. That said, it didn't stop me from going over to a friend's house to play and be blown away by Sonic the Hedgehog on the Mega Drive. Which, we'd play for hours. This was around 1993 or 1994. The only other game this friend owned was Columns. A comparatively lackluster after-dinner mint that helped slow things down for when I went home to play Super Mario World on the SNES.
The SEGA Mega Drive Mini line-up is impressive to say the least, and with the hardware lovingly recreated by SEGA of Japan, it's a mini console that no doubt serves as a great way to rekindle some of the most iconic gaming moments of the early 1990s.
The SEGA Mega Drive Mini is out September 19 with a retail price of $139.95 AUD.
