SEGA Genesis Mini 2 UK release date TBC

But where are the UK and European launch dates? It makes sense that the release of the SEGA Mega Drive Mini 2/Genesis Mini 2 should be simultaneous across the UK, France, Germany, etc. So, if it is being released on October 27 in Japan and the USA and Canada, can we expect it to hit shelves and doormats on the same day?

We’ll only know when SEGA tells us.
