The Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis is a video game console released by Sega in Japan in 1988, North America in 1989, and the PAL region in 1990. It debuted under the name Sega Genesis in North America, as Sega was unable to secure legal rights to the Mega Drive name in that region.
The Mega Drive was the first 16-bit console to achieve notable market share in Europe and North America. It was the direct competitor of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, although the Sega Genesis was released two years earlier.
