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.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
