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 bus – UK tour dates
- London Kidtropolis Excel – 19th – 20th October, 9:30 am – 6:30 pm

The Sega Mega Drive Mini – or Genesis Mini if you are in North America – is a delightful slice of 90s nostalgia. It’s well worth picking up if you played the games first time around or just want to sample one of the defining eras of video gaming.

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. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
