Sega brings back the old “Sega does what Nintendon’t” ad to promote the Sega Genesis Mini

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Sega Genesis, Sega has recreated the original “Sega Does What Nintendon’t” to promote the release of the upcoming Sega Genesis Mini.

The Sega Genesis Mini or Mega Drive Mini as it’s known to the rest of the world will include 40 fantastic Sega Genesis titles which include Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man the Wily Wars, Ecco the Dolphin, Toe Jam & Earl, Altered Beast, Golden Axe and plenty more.  The system is being developed by M2 who is known for doing amazing work on porting and releasing older titles which include Konami’s Castlevania Collection/Contra Collection and the upcoming Turbografx-16 Mini to name a few.

You can watch the trailer below which isn’t as fierce as it was back in the 90’s showing just how amazing the console is but the whole concept of bringing such an iconic commercial back is something I really appreciate growing up in the old Nintendo vs Sega days!

The Sega Genesis Mini releases on September 19th and I can’t wait to pick up mine.
