You can now pre-order the Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 in the UK

The retro console is back at Amazon.

Sega is re-releasing their Mega Drive Mini console with a new upgraded version- some good news for retro game fans.

The Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 launches on the 27th of October and includes 60 games- that's 20 more than the first edition and includes some Sega CD titles. The price, however, has gone up by £35, bringing the cost to £105. It also comes with one less controller, but the three-button controller from the original Sega Mega Drive Mini is apparently compatible, so you're alright if you have one of those!

Whether the extra cost for more games and one controller down is good value depends on what is important to you, but if you're a retro lover who's a fan of classic Sega games like Sonic CD, Streets of Rage 3, and Thunder Force IV then this is something you should set your sights on.

Pre-order now from Amazon

You can only get the Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 from Amazon in the UK right now, and considering how quickly the first version sold out and how quickly the Snes mini console sold out, pre-ordering is your best bet of getting your hands on the Mega Drive Mini as you're unlikely to see it again.

The Mega Drive Mini 2 comes with just one controller this time, but there are two USB ports at the front marked "Control 1" and "Control 2", meaning two-player function seems to still be there. Unless you already own one of the three-button controllers from the original Sega Mega Drive Mini, you just might have to purchase a separate controller - that's if Sega release any.

Positive changes with the Mega Drive Mini 2 include a smaller form factor, and inside that more compact body is improved hardware which will help run those classic games with full-motion video and smoother animations. The biggest improvement is the extra games, which includes seven bonus titles like Fantasy Zone and Super Locomotive.
