Original SEGA Genesis Mini Games List

If you're wondering how the above roster compares to the previous edition of the Mega Drive Mini, check out the full list for the first one in our guide below:

So, What Is The Mega Drive Mini 2?

The Mega Drive Mini 2 is the second iteration of Sega's miniature take on its classic 16-bit console. Sega itself describes it as a complete revamp of the first Mega Drive Mini, with improved hardware tucked away in a new design based on the Mega Drive Model 2.

The console will come bundled with 50 games, including a mixture of Mega Drive / Genesis titles and Mega CD titles. One controller will come with the console at retail, but Sega has also confirmed that controllers from the first iteration will be compatible with the Mega Drive Mini 2.

And When Is It Out, Please?

Sega has confirmed that the Genesis Mini 2 will release in North America on October 27th. Coincidentally, that's also the confirmed release date for Japan.

In North America, the console will be exclusive to Amazon. You can find the product link at the bottom of this page.

Hang On, What About Europe?

Good news! A European release has finally been confirmed for the same day as the Genesis in North America, so that's October 27th. It's also got the exact same game roster, so no regional differences here folks.

Pre-orders for the European release have been confirmed to kick off at some point in September.
