Late last month, Sega revealed their Genesis Mini — an unsurprising response to the craze over mini plug-and-play consoles, mostly of the Nintendo variety.
At the time of announcement, Sega said the Genesis Mini would come pre-installed with forty classic games from the library, and revealed ten of them. Today they revealed ten more, and we have to say, we’re pleased so far. In the Genesis Mini you will find:
Sonic the Hedgehog
Ecco the Dolphin
Space Harrier 2
Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
ToeJam & Earl
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 3
Super Fantasy Zone
Shinobi 3: Return of the Ninja Master
Any one of these (with the possible exception of launch pack-in Altered Beast) can keep you entertained for hours. Sega is clearly putting in a real effort, to the point that they would obtain a dual license from both Disney and Capcom to get the two Mickey Mouse Illusion games on the device. (Aladdin would have been even better, though maybe that one’s coming.)

With the development being handled by emulation masters M2, the Sega Genesis Mini could become just as huge a hit as the NES or SNES Classics were. Our suggestion is to get your preorders in now.
Now let’s get to the actual games. There will be plenty to keep Switch players busy through the remainder of the year, and some excellent stuff is now confirmed for 2022. Like a fully 3D Kirby, Splatoon 3 and the finally confirmed release window for Bayonetta 3! Castlevania Advance Collection
If your social media feeds seem especially busy right now and people can’t stop making Chris Pratt jokes, there’s a reason: Nintendo just dropped another Direct. As we typically do, we’ll be listing the revealed Fall 2021 – Winter 2022 game lineup in order of release, but there were so
There are usually potion shops in RPGs where you can buy bottled spells for both offensive and defensive purposes, but what’s it like on the other end of the counter? In the new game Potion Craft from publisher tinyBuild and developer NicePlay, you can take up the practice of magic
World War Z is coming back…kind of. It’s largely the same game, but it’s headed to a new platform (Nintendo Switch) with the Deluxe Edition that will contain all the content previously released on PS4 and XBox One. So finally, Switch can stand equally with its contemporaries, right? I hope
