For those interested in what horror titles are included, you’ve got Castlevania: Bloodlines, which was exclusive to this console and the only game in the Castlevania series released for it. Next up, dodge deadly enemies and various obstacles in Kid Chameleon. In terms of brutal fighting games, Eternal Champions was a fine contender among some other big titles in its genre, such as Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat, the former of which has one of its editions included here. Last but not least, Ghouls 'n Ghosts is sure to bring back some fond memories!
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. This item is slated for release on September 19th and will cost you $79.99 USD.
