Having witnessed the success of Nintendo’s mini consoles, Sega is following suit with their own, the Mega Drive/Genesis Mini. The console is being designed by retro gaming company AtGames, which actually tried their hand at a new (but poorly received) version of the Genesis just last year.

In response to a question about the inclusion of a rewind feature, like the one featured in the Flashback console, AtGames said it will let "Sega announce all of the features, but yes, it will have the basics like that." Asked whether Sonic 3 will be included, AtGames replied that it wouldn’t be included because it "has license issues with the music."
