It seems the mini version of the Mega Drive really was to good to be true, at least in terms of its release date, but its only a short delay.
Youll have to wait a couple more weeks for the Mega Drive Mini to be released in Europe, as Sega has announced a delay until 4 October due to unavoidable logistical challenges.
The mini console was due to come out on 19 September but other than that nothing has changed, and itll still be a surprisingly reasonable £69.99 with two replica (three-button) controllers.
For that you get 42 classic games, which you can find listed below, including the ultra-rare Mega Drive version of Tetris and a fan-made version of 2D shooter Darius.
We are committed to a successful launch for consumers in all territories, and this step will ensure we can meet demand and fulfil all the individual pre-orders and retail orders in Europe and the Middle East at the same time, said Sega in a statement.
Which basically sounds like they havent got enough to go around yet, so need more time to manufacture more.
Customers in those regions are still able to pre-order from participating retailers and those who have already pre-ordered will only have to wait an extra two weeks for their little box full of retro magic.
The Mega Drive Mini is one of a number of retro consoles to be released in the last few years, following the Classic Mini NES, Classic Mini SNES, and PlayStation Classic.
After the Mega Drive Mini theres the PC Engine CoreGrafx Mini next spring, which also looks extremely tempting.
