In case you missed the news, the SEGA Genesis Mini arrives on September 19 with the same
six button controller (my bad, the U.S. version only gets the three button version), 40 games, and a save state function. We still don’t have the full list of games for the U.S. version, but the initial announcements are more than promising:
- Altered Beast
- Castlevania: Bloodlines
- Comix Zone
- Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
- Ecco the Dolphin
- Gunstar Heroes
- Shining Force
- Sonic The Hedgehog
- Space Harrier II
- ToeJam & Earl
The console just went up for preorder at Walmart for $80, with two bundled controllers. We don’t yet know if it will be difficult to find like Nintendo’s consoles, or a flop like Sony’s PlayStation Classic, but if you want to be sure to get yours when it comes out, I’d order now.
Update: Now available on Amazon too.
