Sega and Atari, the biggest rivals of Nintendo, have seen massive success in producing their own line of “Classic Mini” consoles. These consoles aim to reproduce the experience of the NES and SNES. Some of the most popular games on these consoles can be played on the new mini consoles.

The NES Classic Mini and SNES Classic Mini, have been massive hits for Nintendo, which has now prompted rivals Sega and Atari to take a similar route. Sega and Atari have been among the best console makers. But that has become past tense now, and to make it a present reality, the companies are looking to go Nintendo’s way.

Sega’s COO Kenji Matsubara, in a conversation with Yahoo, has said that the company has decided that it would be coming up with its own line of consoles that are modelled after the classic systems by the company. Based on the report by GamingBolt, Sega is not actually going to produce in0house consoles based on its previous versions. Instead, the company is going to import the Genesis Flashback by AT&T Games to Japan.

Though this might not be the most encouraging news for the followers, it is still progress in terms of how the company is considering doing things a bit differently. Even if that means bringing in consoles that have been known as imitations of its own products. This could be in honor of the importance that these consoles have for the customers.
