Sega Mega Drive Mini Delayed In Europe And Middle East

The Sega Mega Drive Mini, expected to arrive worldwide on September 19, has been delayed in Europe and the Middle East. Sega Europe now says the mini redux will launch on October 4, two weeks later.

In a tweet posted on Monday, July 29, Sega Europe said “unavoidable logistical challenges” are what is causing the short delay. Whatever these challenges are only affect Europe and the Middle East, as the Sega America Twitter account has not responded to the news.

A Sega spokesperson told Eurogamer that “Customers in those regions are still able to pre-order from participating retailers and those who have already pre-ordered will only have to wait an extra two weeks for their little box full of retro magic.” The spokesperson further said that Sega is “committed to a successful launch for consumers in all territories, [while ensuring] we can meet demand and fulfill all the individual pre-orders and retail orders in Europe and the Middle East at the same time.”
