The Genesis Mini won’t be out until later this year but that won’t stop Sega from building the hype early with some new game announcements! When the Genesis Mini was first announced it was revealed the system would come pre-installed with 40 classic titles for the system. At the time only 10 games were revealed including Sonic the Hedgehog and Castlevania: Bloodlines.
Today’s reveal adds 10 more known titles to the list and includes the amazing Castle of Illusion and World of Illusion games! We will also be getting another trio of Sega classics including Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Streets of Rage 2 and Shinobi III! Genesis fans are also sure to be happy to see the inclusion of Earthworm Jim and Thunder Force III as both were very solid games in their time. Rounding out the new editions are Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole, Super Fantasy Zone and Probotector. I am unfortunately not familiar with these last 3 games but I am sure there are fans happy to see their inclusion!
