The Sega Genesis Mini is coming. It is coming in just over a month. It is only one more month the wait shouldn’t be that bad. What’s this, a new trailer for the Sega Genesis Mini. AH MAN I NEED IT NOW! Yes, needless to say I am a bit overexcited for the Sega Genesis Mini to come out next month! Sega’s Mini offering on the classic 16-bit system will be launching on September 19 and comes pre-loaded with 42 classic Genesis games.
A few titles included were also never even released like Darius, which is a brand new Genesis port made specifically for the mini. The legally fraught Genesis version of Tetris is also making an appearance on the machine! How about some Mega Man The Wily Wars which never got released on a cartridge in the west and was instead lost to the sands of time. Other various classics like Phantasy Star IV, Contra: Hard Corps and Castlevania: Bloodlines make the Genesis Mini even more tempting as finding real carts costs almost as much as the new system alone!
Besides the impressive games list, Sega also has the masterminds at M2 handling all aspects of the Genesis Mini’s emulation. I have high hopes that this could be the best mini we see yet after the underwhelming PlayStation Classic and barely acceptable, in my book, NES/SNES Classics. The Genesis Mini will include all necessary cables to operate and also comes with 2 3-button controllers. If you would like to use a 6-button controller on the Genesis Mini for the few included games that support it, any of the USB Sega controller variants from Retro-Bit are going to be supported!
Are you as excited as me about the Genesis Mini?
