Sega Genesis Mini's Second List of Announced Games Is Fantastic

The Sega Genesis Mini's got some Disney games announced, plus more surprises in it's 40-game total library.

The previously announced lineup for the Sega Genesis Mini was decent before, but as of today, it's starting to look like a must-buy. If you're a player that either lost your Genesis sometime in the past near-30 years or simply did not experience that generation, the Genesis mini just got more enticing.

There are some good games on this thing!

Sega announced 10 more titles to be packed into the upcoming throwback console. For fans of the Sega Genesis, it's close to impossible to say no to the list:

  • Earthworm Jim
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
  • World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
  • Contra: Hard Corps
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Thunder Force III
  • Super Fantasy Zone
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Landstalker

Castle of Illusion? World of Illusion? Landstalker? Shinobi 3?! Okay okay, I'm sold. Everything on here is great.

These aren't the only titles announced for the Sega Genesis Mini so far, though, and they do not appear to be the last. Twenty games have been announced for the miniature console so far, and 20 more should be announced over the coming months.

The other games already announced for the Genesis Mini are:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Space Harrier 2
  • Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
  • ToeJam & Earl
  • Comix Zone
  • Altered Beast
  • Gunstar Heroes

This is also a pretty great list. Between these 20 titles, there is an amazing lineup and array of games packed into the Mini as it stands.

Who knows what's going to be announced next maybe some Phantasy Star, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, or Jungle Strike or Desert Strike.

It's literally impossible to tell, but with the star-studded line up the Sega Genesis Mini has announced so far, anything is possible here. Nobody expected any of the Disney games to make it, but we've got two announced already.

It seems the sky is the limit for the Genesis Mini lineup and my $79.99 is ready for launch on September 19 of this year.

Classic annoying Sega kid, still hasn't let go of Sonic and prefers arcade-style games. Final Fantasy and SaGa rock whatever it is you like, chump.
