SEGA Mania Fanzine: Issue 1 | Review

Wednesday, July 14th, 2021

SEGA Mania is a brand new, full colour print fanzine from Tim Hugall, Simon Pike and Sam Forrester with a huge emphasis on reviving the 1990s. The team make no qualms about wearing their influences on their sleeves, as the magazine is a clear homage to the wild west of UK SEGA magazines like Mean Machines SEGA, MegaTech, SEGA Power and SEGA Force, but now with the modern advantage of hindsight.

Read our full review of the first issue by clicking this link.

SEGA Mania issue 1 can be ordered from the SEGA Mania Online Store.

Miniature Power Base Converter Revealed for Mega Drive Mini, Releasing October 2021 | Merchandise

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021

The Mega Drive Mini is getting another accessory in the form of the Mega Drive Tower Mini Zero. Releasing exclusively in Japan, this is a miniature Power Base Converter (or Mega Adapter as its known in Japan) that comes with two cartridges of Penguin Land and Alex Kidd in Miracle World. The accessory is entirely cosmetic and doesn’t allow you to play these games on a Mega Drive Mini.

The release of the Mega Drive Tower Mini Zero is actually to coincide with the release of Lost Judgment which also features an in-game Master System that allows you to play Alex Kidd in Miracle World within the actual game world of Lost Judgment.

The Mega Drive Tower Mini Zero will release in Japan on October 21st 2021 and will cost 4,950 yen which currently converts to around £31.93.

“Sonic Mania: Green Hill Zone” LEGO Set Concept By Viv Grannell Receives Official Greenlight, Will Be Made Into Commercial LEGO Set

Thursday, February 4th, 2021

After a couple of years garnering support and going through a slew of approval processes, the final verdict from LEGO themselves on Viv Grannell (also known as toastergrl)’s concept for a LEGO set based on 2017’s Sonic Mania is here; and it’s happening!

Via the latest LEGO Ideas submissions review, the house of many colourful bricks has confirmed they are now working with SEGA to make a full LEGO Sonic set a reality. This is right on cue for the 30th Anniversary, and hot on the heels of the company’s collaboration with a certain plumber last year, so the timing is perfect. It’s really great to see all of Viv’s effort and patience pay off, and you can bet that we’ll be first in line to pick up one of these sets for ourselves once it’s released.

From LEGO themselves:

The review board has given Viv Grannell’s (aka toastergrl on LEGO Ideas) Sonic Mania – Green Hill Zone the green light. We’re excited to collaborate with SEGA and Viv to bring one of the most iconic game characters and brands to life via LEGO bricks on the basis of Viv’s colourful and fun creation. Congrats Viv!

Obviously there’s no timeframe for the product just yet, but we can’t wait!
