All 42 games on the Mega Drive Mini revealed including two bonus games

The Mega Drive Mini, or Genesis Mini if you are over in North America, was originally announced with 40 games but the cheeky scamps at Sega were telling lies as the console will ship with 42 games.

The two bonus games that have been announced are Tetris and the classic shoot ‘em up Darius, “and you won’t need three monitors to enjoy all its legendary, aquatic-themed glory!” states the press release. Also included is Road Rash II, complete with two player split screen racing combat, and one of my favourite arcade games, Strider.


Here’s the full list of games:

  1. Sonic The Hedgehog
  2. Ecco the Dolphin
  3. Castlevania: The New Generation
  4. Space Harrier 2
  5. Shining Force
  6. Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  7. ToeJam & Earl
  8. Comix Zone
  9. Altered Beast
  10. Gunstar Heroes
  11. Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
  12. World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
  13. Thunder Force III
  14. Super Fantasy Zone
  15. Shinobi III
  16. Streets of Rage 2
  17. Earthworm Jim
  18. Sonic The Hedgehog 2
  19. Probotector
  20. Landstalker
  21. Mega Man®: The Wily Wars
  22. Street Fighter II®: Special Champion Edition
  23. Ghouls ‘n Ghosts®
  24. Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
  25. Story of Thor
  26. Golden Axe
  27. Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium
  28. Sonic The Hedgehog Spinball
  29. Vectorman
  30. Wonder Boy in Monster World
  31. Tetris®
  32. Darius
  33. Road Rash II
  34. Strider
  35. Virtua Fighter 2
  36. Alisia Dragoon
  37. Kid Chameleon
  38. Monster World IV
  39. Eternal Champions
  40. Columns
  41. Dynamite Headdy
  42. Light Crusader

That’s a pretty good list, especially as the console only costs £69.99. For that you get a dinky console approximately 55% the size of the original Model 1 Mega Drive, two replica three-button USB Genesis controllers, one USB to Micro-B power cable, and a HDMI cable. Although many of the Sega games included on the mini console are available as part of the Mega Drive Classics collections available on consoles this is the first time in ages you can play the likes of Road Rash II and Probotector.

The console will launch on September 19th world wide. For information head over to the official site.

  1. Actually pretty tempted by this one. But I always find nostalgia never lived up to the expectations.

  2. My first proper console with a decent handful of my first proper games… think the nostalgia element is gonna be too much for me to resist! Road Rash 2 is one of my fave games ever!

    Also, just noticed the mini PS1 is only £40 on Amazon now.
