Sega Genesis Mini Reveals 10 More Games, Including the Rare Mega Man: The Wily Wars

There will still be technically 40 games for the Genesis Mini, total.

Sega has announced the next 10 games coming bundled with the Sega Genesis Mini. One new title coming to the Genesis Mini is a bundle of three games, but still only counts as one towards the Genesis Mini's 40 game count. Lucky you.

The bundle includes Mega Man: The Wily Wars, which collects the first three Mega Man games into one. Wily Wars was once exclusive to the Sega Channel, but will be available as part of Sega's mini console come September. Phantasy Star 4, one of our Top 25 RPGs of All Time, is also included with this bundle. Here's a list of the latest games announced for the Genesis Mini.

  • Mega Man: The Wily Wars
  • Street Fighter 2: Special Champion Edition
  • Ghouls 'n Ghosts
  • Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
  • Beyond Oasis
  • Golden Axe
  • Phantasy Star 4: The End of the Millennium
  • Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball
  • Vectorman
  • Wonder Boy in Monster World

This brings the total game count announced for the Sega Genesis Mini to 30. Sega announced 40 games in total, so there's still 10 games yet to be announced before the system is released. Here's a list of the 20 games previously announced for the Sega Genesis Mini.

  • Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
  • World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
  • Thunder Force 3
  • Super Fantasy Zone
  • Shinobi 3

The Sega Genesis Mini was announced back at Sega Fes 2018, but delayed the system to ensure its quality. The company even hired Sega Ages developer, M2, to take over from AtGames for even better quality.

The Sega Genesis Mini will be coming out on September 19 for $79.99. We'll have a full list of games coming to the mini system when it is announced.
