As many people know Nintendo plans on discontinuing the production of the SNES Classic very soon despite the level of success the 16-bit retro mini console has achieved since its release back in September 2017. However, on the plus side the Mega Drive Mini will be available in retail next year and since the SNES Classic will eventually sell out soon it will give Sega’s retro based console the opportunity to shine all throughout 2019. The question is whether or not the Mega Drive Mini will surpass the SNES in relation to sales next year. With games such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Streets of Rage II, Golden Axe, Comix Zone and others the Mega Drive Mini is something that retro gamers who grew up in the early 90’s would definitely want to check out next year.
While the SNES Classic managed to reach at least 5 million units worldwide in sales in roughly over a year there are many who question whether or not Sega’s Mega Drive Mini can achieve the same feat. While the PS1 Mini received mixed to negative reviews since its release on December 3rd and is unlikely to be a successful as the SNES Classic the Mega Drive Mini has the Pittsburgh to reach at least one million units in sales within the first few months or even weeks. Its going to be interesting to see how successful the Mega Drive Mini becomes following its release in 2019.
