Sega has decided to postpone the launch of the Mega Drive Mini in Europe.

The retro micro console will hit stores on October 4th, two weeks after the previous date – September 19th

In a statement, the company spoke of inevitable logistical challenges:

“We are committed to achieving a successful launch for all consumers in all territories and this step will ensure that we are able to satisfy the demand for all individual orders and stores in Europe and the Middle East at the same time.

“Consumers in these regions can still order from participating stores and those who have already ordered it will just have to wait two more weeks for their little box full of retro magic.”

The Sega Mega Drive Mini will include 42 classics like Darius, which never released Mega Drive, and a highly rare version of Tetris, of which there are only 10 physical copies in the world.

Sonic the Hedgehog, Ecco the Dolphin, Streets of Rage 2 and Earthworm Jim are also on the list.
