The unfortunate news is that the "Fes (tival)" is being held at Belle Salle Akihabara in Tokyo but IF you happen to be in Japan and you CAN attend, the good news is that it's free! We've seen several major news drops this evening from that, including Shenmue I and II getting a release bundle on modern consoles. Sega Ages will be a collection of classic SEGA games that can be individually purchased, instead of the boxed collection coming to other platforms.
That being said, as mentioned above, they did say that the tech used on the Mega Drive Mini is "new and improved", which means that users should probably expect a better experience compared to the Sega Genesis Flashback console.
The Mega Drive Mini, which is scheduled for release this year, is simply a fun-size version of the classic 16-bit machine, which first launched in Japan in 1988, before being rolled out globally over the following two years. If this announcement seems strangely familiar, that's because AtGames has already gifted fans with a classic plug and play system boasting a plethora of games.

For the first time since the Warriors became the juggernaut they are, they enter the playoffs having to "flip the switch" into their usual level of play .
The collection features games such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe and Streets of Rage.
For those unfamiliar, AtGames is a company known for manufacturing a range of "flashback" consoles, including the Genesis. We've asked Sega to clarify that and to confirm whether or not the Mini Mega Drive will make it to market in the west, and we'll update you here on Gamereactor as soon as we know more.
