It was two years back when Sega first announced the Mega Drive (Genesis Mini), a compact plug-and-play iteration of its classic console. Today, they’ve announced a new accessory for the mini console, the Mega Drive Tower Mini Zero.
The Tower Mini Zero, however, is purely for cosmetic purposes only. Similar to the Tower Mini that was released in 2019, it doesn’t actually function, and essentially serves a miniature scale of the Power Base Converter that allows the Sega Genesis to play Sega Master System games. In comparison, the Tower Mini is made of of three accessories: the Sega CD, Sega 32X, and a Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge.
Mega Drive Tower Mini Zero will be available only in Japan for 4,950 yen on 21 October, and is unlikely to receive an international release.
