Sega has recently announced that the Sega Mega Drive mini console will see a delay in Europe as well as the Middle East.
Instead of launching on the original September 19 release date, the Mega Drive Mini will instead launch on October 4 in those regions. According to Sega, this two week delay is due to “unavoidable logistical challenges”.
Elaborating on the issue, a Sega spokesperson had this to say:
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.
Customers in those regions are still able to preorder from participating retailers and those who have already preordered will only have to wait an extra two weeks for their little box full of retro magic.
Well while a shame it’s not that bad … and we are still getting one as it is part of how we grew up into the gaming fans that we are today.
