SEGA Genesis Mini's lineup gets even stronger with the next 10 games announced


Jason Clement

When the SEGA Genesis Mini was announced in March, only ten of its forty included games were revealed, with the company set to announce the remaining titles leading up to the launch.

 

Now the mini console's next ten titles have been revealed, including a few surprises.

 

The newly announced titles include the following:

 

  • Earthworm Jim
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
  • World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
  • Contra: Hard Corps
  • Thunder Force III
  • Super Fantasy Zone
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Landstalker

 

As a reminder, here's a look at the total revealed list so far:

 

Spoiler

 

  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Space Harrier 2
  • Shining Force
  • Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
  • ToeJam & Earl
  • Comix Zone
  • Altered Beast
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Earthworm Jim
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
  • World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
  • Contra: Hard Corps
  • Thunder Force III
  • Super Fantasy Zone
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Landstalker

 

 

While the first ten games that were revealed are 90% SEGA-published titles, the inclusion of three third party-published titles with the ten newly revealed games (Earthworm Jim, Castle of Illusion, and World of Illusion, specifically), two of them being licensed titles, shows that SEGA is going beyond their own library of games to include a good mix of the best and most classic titles on the console; not unlike what Nintendo has done with the NES and SNES Classics.

 

Speaking of Castle of Illusion and its sequel, both games' inclusion have many fans excited at the prospect of potentially having more licensed games be part of the twenty games that have yet to be revealed. The Genesis was no stranger to great licensed Disney games in particular, including Aladdin (of which the Genesis port is widely claimed to be the best version of the game), The Lion King, The Jungle Book, Toy Story, and many others.

 

However, it's safe to say that the remaining 70-75% of the list will likely be SEGA-published titles, so the prospect of even just one or two more Disney games appears low, especially considering that there are two core Sonic titles and two spin-offs of the series that are likely to make the list as well.

 

In any event, SEGA has been revealing ten games of the Genesis Mini's confirmed forty titles every month so far, so the next ten will likely be unveiled in May if the company sticks to this pattern.

 

The Genesis Mini is set to release on September 19, 2019 for $79.99.
