You may recall that last September, Sega decided to delay the launch of the Sega Genesis Mini/Mega Drive Mini after the response to it in the west was bigger than expected. They said they wanted to have a level of quality their fans would expect, and brought in new developers to do so. Sega has now announced that it will launch on September 19th.

The mini system has four quick save slots, HDMI output, and language options. It will include a total of 40 games, and all necessary cables to use it. In addition, it was revealed that the system’s software was developed by M2, and the menu music was the work of Sega composer Yuzo Koshiro.
