Sega's Mega Drive Mini has landed in European shores today. The smaller version of their classic console comes with around 40 games for you to roll back the gaming years, or try them for the first time if you're a younger gamer with an interest in the history of the industry.

The miniature system itself will come with two controllers so you can grab a buddy to play all the co-op offerings with too. It also comes with a USB Power cable much like the smaller NES consoles that have been released in recent years.

The ports have been handled by M2, a Japanese developer and publisher. They're known for handling some of the Virtual Console games for Nintendo as well as the 3D classics series that was released on the 3DS. So they have a good pedigree for this kind of thing.
