There was a time when Sega dominated the gaming console market. Those days are sadly behind us, but it seems like the Japanese company could be looking to get back into the console world once again. To that end, tapping into a bit of nostalgia, Sega has announced the Genesis Mini, which was also known as the Mega Drive outside its native Japan.

The new offering certainly takes a cue from Nintendo's recent efforts, which include the Super Famicom and NES consoles of yesteryear. Whether the Genesis Mini will cause such a fervour remains to be seen, with details about its release still quite vague. What is known though, is that the smaller retro console will support 16-bit titles, landing in Japan first before making its way to other markets across the globe.   

No precise date has been mentioned, but it is slated for release sometime in 2018.
