The Full List Of Games For The Sega Genesis Mini Was Announced, And It’s More Than Expected

Via Sega

Sega‘s first console since 2001’s Sega Dreamcast is finally hitting shelves this September 19th, and it’s taking its cue from the success of other retro mini consoles. The Sega Genesis Mini is listed at $79.99 and we’ve already broken down some of the specs here. It’s going to come installed with more games than the previous retro re-releases like the NES Classic Mini (30 games), the SNES Mini (21 games), and the PlayStation Classic (20 games).

Sega has finally released the full list of games, and it’s even more than they originally promised. The Sega Genesis Mini now includes 42 games instead of 40. And yet neither of those two extra games are Shaq-fu? Travesty. Here’s the full list of 42 games, none of which are Shaq-fu:

  • Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
  • Alisia Dragoon
  • Altered Beast
  • Beyond Oasis
  • Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Columns
  • Comix Zone
  • Contra: Hard Corps
  • Darius
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Dynamite Headdy
  • Earthworm Jim
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Eternal Champions
  • Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  • Golden Axe
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Kid Chameleon
  • Landstalker
  • Light Crusader
  • Mega Man: The Wily Wars
  • Monster World 4
  • Phantasy Star 4: The End of the Millennium
  • Road Rash 2
  • Shining Force
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Sonic The Hedgehog
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 2
  • Sonic The Hedgehog Spinball
  • Space Harrier 2
  • Street Fighter 2: Special Champion Edition
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Strider
  • Super Fantasy Zone
  • Tetris
  • Thunder Force 3
  • ToeJam & Earl
  • Vectorman
  • Virtua Fighter 2
  • Wonder Boy in Monster World
  • World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck

As expected, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 isn’t included because Sega had trouble licensing the music. They apparently ignored our suggestion to replace the Sonic 3 music with Smash Mouth. They just ain’t the sharpest tools in the shed.
