SEGA's new $80 Genesis Mini console will include 40 built-in retro classics, bringing some serious value over Nintendo's SNES and NES Classic Editions. The library is filling out quite nicely and SEGA has revealed half of the Genesis Mini's offering. New additions include Streets of Rage, Sonic 2, Earthworm Jim, Shinobi III and Contra: Hard Corps.

 

Nostalgia is the main selling point of course, but the Genesis Mini includes power cords and two controllers with the $80 price tag. SEGA promises the micro-console will deliver high-quality emulation and performance, ousting AtGames and selecting the well-respected M2 to handle the system.

 

SEGA's Genesis Mini will release September 19, 2019 for $79.99.

 

The following 20 titles have been confirmed so far:

 

  • 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
  • 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
  • Gunstar Heroes
