It looks like this is the Japanese version of Mega Drive Mini. Size is width 55mm x height 39mm x depth 116mm, and size is reduced by approximately 55% from the original. Although the cartridge can not be inserted, the power switch, power lamp, reset button, etc. can be operated in the same manner as the original. However, the function of the reset button seems to be different. Both games have been faithfully reproduced as much as possible, and the game has a break save function. Also, the connection to the TV is with HDMI and the power supply is with USB.
In the overseas version, two nostalgic 3 button controllers are set and connected to the SEGA Genesis Mini by wire.
It seems that 'fighting pad 6B' which is especially popular among the controllers with many mega drives in the Japanese version for the standard equipment is equipped.
Sega Drive Mini will have 40 titles, but at the time of writing, only 10 titles have become clear. The following titles have been clarified, and SEGA states that '3rd party titles are also included'.
・Sonic the Hedgehog 2
・VAMPIRE KILLER (Vampire killer)
・Puyo Puyo Tong
・Maid story I
Shining Force-Heritage of the Gods-
・Space Harrier II
In addition, as for Mega Drive Mini, one attached controller 'Mega Drive Mini (1PAD)' is tax-excluded 6980 yen, and two 'Mega Drive Mini (2PAD)' is tax-included 8980 yen.
