When I was a kid I used to talk about Sega Mega Drive games on the bus to school. Now I can jump on the new Sega bus and actually play them. What days we live in.

To promote the release of the Mega Drive Mini, Sega’s UK arm – in partnership with retailer, Game – is taking the console on a short UK bus tour.

Players can board the Sonic express to try out the Mega Drive Mini and play any of the console’s 42 classic games. Sonic the Hedgehog, Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe and Ecco the Dolphin are among the retro treats on offer. There will also be giveaways and prizes to be won.

Sega Mega Drive and Genesis Mini
