Happy 30th Birthday Sega Genesis

Today is the 30th anniversary of the release for the Sega Genesis here in North America, and to celebrate Sega has released a new promo video hearkening back to the good old days when they went head-to-head with Nintendo in the console wars.

Featured above, the new “Genesis Does” video is a throwback to the original advertising campaign seen back in the 1990’s where they literally said “Genesis goes what Nintendon’t.” It was the start of an ongoing marketing campaign that Sega became known for in its subsequent years.

The Sega Genesis Mini launches September 19th in North America and on October 4th in Europe and the Middle East. What are some of your favorite Genesis games? Sound off in the comments below!
