Sega Genesis Mini Gets 10 More Titles Announced, Includes Street Fighter II
Each time Sega announces more titles for the Sega Genesis Mini, a wave of nostalgia slaps me in the face like I did it wrong because I don't have the thing yet.
Ten additional titles have been announced for the upcoming miniature nostalgia box, and all 10 games fit in perfectly with those that have already been announced.
Today's announcement includes:
- Mega Man: The Wily Wars
- Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition
- Ghouls 'n Ghosts
- Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
- Beyond Oasis
- Golden Axe
- Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millenium
- Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball
- Wonder Boy in Monster World
Most of these games are more than welcome additions to the Sega Genesis Mini library, but some are certainly more notable than others.
Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition is the shining star in this lineup as a unique and overall superior Street Fighter II edition, the only problem being you'll need a six-button controller to be competitive.
Luckily Retro-Bit is making a six-button controller, prime for use with Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition and Comix Zone. Retro-Bit's six-button Genesis and Mega Drive controller will be available in late August for a smooth $19.99 — that's certainly not bad.
In case you haven't been keeping up, here are the other titles announced so far for the Sega Genesis Mini. Keep your eyes peeled for the last 10 games to be announced and get ready to open that wallet for the hardware's September 19 release date.
