Sega Genesis / Mega Drive Mini Includes Sonic 2, Earthworm Jim; More Classic Games Revealed

Sega has revealed 10 more games coming to its Mega Drive Mini (known as the Genesis Mini in the US). The lineup of classic titles includes Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Earthworm Jim, and more beloved games.

Fans will be pleased to see both Caste of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck included with Sega’s miniature console. The device also comes with Streets of Rage 2, Contra: Hard Corps, and Shinobi 3.

A further 20 games are to be revealed over the coming months. We already knew Ecco the Dolphin, Sonic the Hedgehog, Castlevania: Bloodlines and more were to be pre-installed on the console, which will come with 40 games in total. You can read all 20 games revealed so far at the bottom of this article.

The Mega Drive Mini / Genesis Mini launches worldwide on September 19, costing $80 / £70 / AU $140. It’s based on the Model 1 version of the original console, except approximately 55% smaller. The box contains the console, a power adapter, two replica three-button USB controllers, one USB to micro-USB power cable, and one HDMI lead.

The game ports that are on the Genesis Mini were handled by M2, a team that is well known for its work on emulation and re-releases. M2 previously worked on Sega Ages and Sega 3D Classics Collection.

Releasing Mini versions of classic consoles has become something of a trend recently. Nintendo led the way with the NES Classic and the SNES Classic, both of which were received well by critics and went on to be hot commercial items. Sony followed suite with the PlayStation Classic, which wasn’t received as warmly.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
