Sega Asks Which Games You Want in Mega Drive Mini

Sega wants to know which episode of three iconic Mega Drive game series you'd like to play on Mega Drive Mini.

February 25, 2019

Sega’s official Japanese Twitter account and its official site started a survey to ask which games should be included in the tentatively named Mega Drive Mini. Rather than a list of games, the survey asks you to choose between different episodes of three iconic game series released on Mega Drive: Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo, and Shining Force.

The first tweet asks if you’d rather want Mega Drive Mini to include Sonic the Hedgehog 1 or Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

The second one asks you to choose between Puyo Puyo and Puyo Puyo Tsu.

The third tweet asks players to pick between Shining Force I and Shining Force II.
The survey on the official site asks the three same questions. The survey will end on March 4 at 17:00 JST.


Sonic the Hedgehog doesn’t need a presentation. Puyo Puyo is a puzzle game spinoff of the RPG series Mado Monogatari developed by Compile, which ended up becoming much more popular and iconic than its original series. Mado Monogatari‘s last game was over 20 years ago, while Puyo Puyo is extremely popular. Shining Force is one of the strategy RPGs series who invented or populairzed many systems in the genre together with series such as Langrisser or Fire Emblem, with each series having its own specificities. Shining Force is also part of the larger Shining series, which is still ongoing today, with the latest game being Blade Arcus Rebellion From Shining, a fighting game spinoff.

Mega Drive Mini is scheduled to launch this year in Japan. It was first announced at Sega Fes 2018 back in April 2018, and there’s a fairly high chance its release date will be announced during Sega Fes 2019, where the results of this survey will be published. Sega Fes 2019 will be held on March 30 and March 31.

As a side note, Sega Fes 2019 is probably where we’ll finally get to see a trailer for Shin Sakura Taisen, as Sega Fes 2018 was also when the game was first revealed. And despite Toshihiro Nagoshi’s teasing a few months ago, we still haven’t heard more about the game yet.
