The Sega Genesis Mini 2 promises to be quite the plug-and-play option from Sega, this time mixing Sega CD and some unreleased games into the fun. We’ve seen reveals of just a few games that will come with the system. However, today, Sega finalized the list, showing off the last of the 60 games that will be available to play when the Genesis Mini 2 launches, including Space Harrier 2, Super Locomotive, and more.
Sega shared the last of the Genesis Mini 2’s games in a YouTube video released on August 19, 2022. This last round of announcements finalizes the list of games coming to the Sega Genesis Mini 2. Set to sell exclusively on Amazon, this plug-and-play sequel to the original device includes 60 games that span both the Sega Genesis and Sega CD library. There are even arcade ports like Fantasy Zone and previously unreleased games like Takashi Iizuka’s Devi & Pii. With this final announcement, the games list for the Sega Genesis Mini 2 is now complete.
Here's a rundown of the games revealed today for the Sega Genesis Mini 2:
The Sega Genesis Mini 2 is set to launch in October 2022, exclusively on Amazon. Due to resource shortages and the semiconductor famine, Sega expects that supply of the system will be heavily limited compared to the original Sega Genesis Mini. With the list complete, are you going to be picking one up? Be sure to keep your eyes on the Amazon page as sales go live in the months ahead.

Good line up. Solid picks. There are a few I would have not picked myself but I understand their significance, such as Night Trap. I think the collection leans too heavy towards shooters but they are all good. I'm not sure what I replace.
The biggest issue is the absence of Snatcher. The Sega CD version was the only version to get an English translation and it would have been great to have the game reach a wider US audience.
