The final 12 games coming to the Sega Genesis Mini have been announced today, and it's certainly good news for those holding out for a few classics. Darius, Monster World IV, Alisia Dragoon, and more have been confirmed for Sega's nostalgia console, coming to stores on September 19.
The last 12 games bring the total up to 42 games for the $79.99 console, two more than initially promised. Here's the list of the last batch:
- Virtua Fighter 2
- Alisia Dragoon
- Monster World IV
- Kid Chameleon
- Road Rash II
- Eternal Champions
- Dynamite Headdy
- Light Crusader
Arcade classic Darius brings its three-monitor experience down to one in this port to the Mini, a huge step for the shoot-em-up gem. For the first time on a miniature console, you'll be able to play all these classics, wiping the asphalt with your friends in Road Rash II or duking it out in the arena of Virtua Fighter II.
These games join others like Earthworm Jim, Mega Man: The Wily Wars, and Contra: Hard Corps on the Mini. The classic gaming console will be 55% the size of the original model and, in North America, come with the three-button classic controller. Don't worry if you're a fighting game player, though; there will be a six-button controller available (separately) at launch, to recreate that original Street Fighter II feeling for Genesis. Otherwise, tapping out some of those punches and kicks just won't feel the same.
While the European and North American versions share the same game pool, Japan gets a few different titles, including Puyo Puyo 2 and Rent A Hero. The Sega Genesis Mini will be available worldwide on September 19, 2019 for $79.99.
