Sega last month announced a firm launch date for its upcoming Sega Genesis Mini. The company also shared 10 of 40 games that’ll come pre-installed on the console. Sega this week revealed another bundle of 10 games, ticking off two more titles on my personal wish list.

The newly announced games are as follows:

  • Castle of Illusion
  • World of Illusion
  • Thunder Force III
  • Super Fantasy Zone
  • Shinobi III
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Earthworm Jim
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Contra: Hard Corps
  • Landstalker

These games join 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 and Gunstar Heroes on the list of confirmed titles.

Best yet, there are still 20 more games to come. If your favorite hasn’t yet made the list, there’s still the possibility that it’ll be added in the coming months. I’m still holding out hope for General Chaos, NHL 94, Mortal Kombat II, NBA Jam and Road Rash. I also wouldn’t be opposed to seeing X-Men, Aladdin and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist make the cut.

The Sega Genesis Mini launches September 19, 2019, priced at $79.99. It’s available to pre-order as of writing from Amazon, GameStop, Walmart and other retailers.

Are there plans to make a Sega CD version? I still have my Sega CD Gen1 and several games. I looked on ebay and looks like they fetch a good price. I wonder if it's worth selling now? Earthworm Jim was probably my favorite on that patform. The audio was incredible.
