The iconic SEGA Genesis, also known as the SEGA Mega Drive outside of North America, returns with its own miniature-sized version of the popular ‘90s gaming console. The new retro console will feature 40 games and is scheduled to release later this year on September 19th, 2019. You’re likely wondering what titles are included for North America, so have a look below for the first ten titles announced.
- Altered Beast
- Castlevania: Bloodlines
- Comix Zone
- Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
- Ecco the Dolphin
- Gunstar Heroes
- Shining Force
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Space Harrier II
- Toe Jam & Earl
So far, the only included horror title is obviously Castlevania: Bloodlines, which was exclusive to this console and the only game in the Castlevania series released for it. As far as other popular horror titles are concerned, they could include Kid Chameleon, Splatterhouse 2, Splatterhouse 3, and Zombies Ate My Neighbors, just to name a few.
Overseeing the emulation for the console is game developer M2, which has handled quality products for SEGA in the past, such as several Sega Ages collections and the Sega 3D Classic Collection for the Nintendo 3DS. Given the disappointing releases by AtGames, which is being dropped in favor of M2, this news is sure to please those hoping for an enjoyable and familiar playing experience.
The SEGA Genesis Mini is based on the model 1 series of the classic console and comes ready to play with two wired controllers, an HDMI cable, USB power adapter, and a power cable. As mentioned, this item is slated for release on September 19th and will cost you $79.99 USD.
