Sega Genesis Mini Update
Genesis does what Nintendon't

Greetings, Vocal readers. I have an update on the Sega Genesis Mini that you're going to love. So in case you're living under a rock or unaware of what's going on, two months ago, Sega announced that they will be releasing the Sega Genesis Mini on September 19. It will include 40 games and it's ready to plug and play. The retail price of it will go on sale for $79.99. For about $80, that's a really good deal for a piece of nostalgia. It's better than spending $200-$400 on an XBox One or PlayStation 4. I wrote an article about this back in March and disclosed the list of the first handful of games that will be on the Sega Genesis Mini and they are as follows:

  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Space Harrier II
  • Shining Force
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • ToeJam & Earl
  • Comix Zone
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Altered Beast
  • Gunstar Heroes

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, Sega recently announced 10 more games that will be on the Sega Genesis Mini, confirming 30 of the 40 games so far. Here are the list of games down below:

  • Mega Man: The Wily Wars
  • Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition
  • Ghouls 'n Ghosts
  • Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
  • Beyond Oasis
  • Golden Axe
  • Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium
  • Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball
  • Vectorman
  • Wonder Boy in Monster World

So far, there has been no release date of when people will be able to pre-order the Sega Genesis Mini and the rest of the games will be announced soon. I'll be sure to keep an eye on this story and keep everyone posted. You can also check out my original article where I stated which games I would like to see on the game system. It's worth the read and just to warn you, I totally geek out about these games. I've polled my friends and followers, following the announcement of the Sega Genesis Mini, on whether or not they'll buy it. They were mixed on it, but hopefully, the outcome will be much different. Like I've said many times before, nostalgia will always be there, especially when it comes to retro gaming. I remember playing my first video game at the age of two and now being in my early 30s, I still love retro games. They'll always be a part of my life.
