Sega’s latest mini console isn’t exclusive to Japan.

A promotional video shared by Sega today can confirm that the Sega Genesis Mini 2 will be available to purchase in North America later this year. The mini console, which is called the Mega Drive Mini 2 in Japan, is scheduled to go on sale in North America on Thursday, October 27.

Sega fans who pick up the Genesis Mini 2 will find a copy of the console’s iconic six-button controller and a mix of 50 classic Genesis, Mega CD, and Sega CD titles built in, including Sonic CD, Outrun, Virtua Racing, and Vectorman 2. A “never-released bonus game” has also been teased on the mini console’s official website.

Sega Genesis Mini 2 titles:

  • After Burner 2 (Genesis)
  • Alien Soldier (Genesis)
  • Bonanza Bros (Genesis)
  • Fantasy Zone (Genesis)
  • Lightening Force (Genesis)
  • Mansion of Hidden Souls (Sega CD)
  • Night Striker (Mega CD)
  • OutRunners (Genesis)
  • Outrun (Genesis)
  • Rainbow Islands Extra (Genesis)
  • Rolling Thunder 2 (Genesis)
  • Shining Force (Sega CD)
  • Shining in the Darkness (Genesis)

  • Star Mobile (Genesis)
  • Super Hang On (Genesis)
  • The Ninja Warriors (Mega CD)

The Sega Genesis Mini 2 will be available exclusively from Amazon when it launches in late October, according to a header image on the official website. It is currently listed for $103.80 on Amazon (shipped and sold by Amazon Japan). The original Sega Genesis Mini launched for $79.99, so that might be a more accurate price.

  1. Still a waste, since the first Genesis Mini can be so easily modded, and you can put a ton of games on there.

    Although I guess you can grab this one if you prefer the look of the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Model 2 instead of the Model 1.
  2. I have a Genesis Model 1 and Model 3, my brother has a Model 2, and we both have Model 2 Sega CDs. I also have a 32X. Unlike most of my consoles, I don't keep a Genesis hooked up, but whenever I wanna use one I just bust out the tiny Model 3. I still play Genesis games a lot, but I usually do it through emulation on PC.
