The Sega Genesis (also known as the Mega Drive in regions outside of North America) is a new retro gaming console that's being launched to give video gamers an updated way to play with a nostalgic gaming system. The special console is also being launched in celebration of the 25th Sonic anniversary.

The retro console will be loaded with 80 games that will give people the chance to rediscover their favorite games in an authentically retro format. Games include Mortal Kombat 1 - 3, a variety of Sonic games, Golden Axe 1 - 3 and many more.

The announcement of the Sega Genesis comes hot on the heels of Nintendo's NES Classic Edition, which signifies a revival in small-scale retro gaming systems.
