The Sega/Mega CD was unveiled to the public for the first time at the 1991 Tokyo Toy Show, to positive reception from critics. Although the system sold well initially, the already small consumer base for the Mega Drive in Japan caused the add-on unit to stall in sales very quickly. Within its first year in Japan, the Mega-CD only sold 100,000 units. Third-party software for the new system suffered because Sega took a long amount of time to release software development kits. Other factors impacting sales included the high launch price in Japan and only two games available at launch.
