Update 7/13/22: Sega has announced a North American release for the Genesis Mini 2. The plug-and-play system is launching on October 27, 2022 as an Amazon exclusive. Sega says the console will include over 50 classic titles, with a combination of Genesis games not found on the original mini console, arcade ports, Sega CD games, and a previously unreleased game.

The console will come with the six-button Genesis control pad, while also remaining compatible with the original Genesis Mini’s controllers. Sega’s official Japanese website also lists 23 games currently announced for the mini console’s lineup, although it’s worth noting that the libraries of these mini consoles can sometimes vary from region to region. The currently confirmed games are as follows:

  • Sonic CD (Sega CD)
  • Shining Force CD (Sega CD)
  • Slipheed (Sega CD)
  • Mansion of Hidden Souls (Sega CD)
  • Night Striker (Sega CD)
  • Ninha Wariors (Sega CD)
  • Afterburner II (Sega Genesis)
  • OutRun (Sega Genesis)
  • OutRunners (Sega Genesis)
  • Virtua Racing (Sega Genesis)
  • Vectorman 2 (Sega Genesis)
  • The Ooze (Sega Genesis)
  • Bonanza Brothers (Sega Genesis)
  • Alien Soldier (Mega Drive)
  • Rainbow Islands Extra (Sega Genesis)
  • Splatterhouse 2 (Sega Genesis)
  • Rolling Thunder 2 (Sega Genesis)
  • Lightening Force (Sega Genesis)
  • Fantasy Zone (Sega Genesis)
  • Star Mobile (Sega Genesis)

There are still plenty of games for Sega to reveal, including the previously unreleased game.

Original story: Sega has announced the Mega Drive Mini 2 which comes with more than 50 pre-installed Mega Drive and Mega CD games (Sega Genesis and Sega CD in North America).

Sonic CD, Virtua Racing, Silpheed and more are all included in the ¥9,980 (around $76) price alongside a new Mega Drive port of Fantasy Zone, which was never released on the original console. Sega is instead porting (presumably) the Master System or arcade version to Mega Drive using its sequel, Super Fantasy Zone, as a basis, and has promised other arcade ports that it described as “mysterious new work”.

Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 Announced

As reported by Video Games Chronicle, the console was announced during a Japanese live stream and is expected to be released on October 27 in Japan, though an international release hasn’t been confirmed as of yet.

The original Sega Mega Drive Mini was launched in 2019 with 42 games, including some that never properly arrived in the west, and it appears its sequel will also grant access to some previously difficult to get games.

Every Game Confirmed for the Sega Mega Drive Mini 2

  • Silpheed (Mega CD)
  • Shining Force CD (Mega CD)
  • Sonic CD (Mega CD)
  • Mansion of Hidden Souls (Mega CD)
  • Popful Mail (Mega CD)
  • Virtua Racing (Mega Drive)
  • Bonanza Bros (Mega Drive)
  • Shining in the Darkness (Mega Drive)
  • Thunder Force IV (Mega Drive)
  • Magical Taruruto (Mega Drive)
  • Fantasy Zone (Mega Drive port)

It released during a craze of retro consoles being released such as “Classic” editions of Nintendo’s NES and the original PlayStation, but IGN said the Sega Mega Drive Mini was the best one to be made so far.

In our 9/10 review, IGN said: “The SEGA Genesis Mini isn’t perfect, but it’s as close to perfect as any retro all-in-one mini console has come so far.”
