SEGA Mega Drive Mini II – full game list revealed, European pre-orders live

SEGA has revealed the full list of games included on the Mega Drive Mini 2. This news coincides with European launch information – it’s out 27th October for £104.99 (approx.) as an Amazon exclusive.

The roster is pretty impressive, including not just classic first-party titles but games from Interplay, Capcom, Data East, Taito, Bandai-Namco, and EA. This is on top of a handful of new games, including fresh conversions of Fantasy Zone, Super Locomotive, VS Puyo Puyo Sun, and Space Harrier 2, along with Devi & Pii and Splatter – two previously unreleased games.

The prospect of Mega CD games is exciting, this being a format that doesn’t usually show up on retro compilations. Snatcher is the obvious omission, along with licensed games such as Batman Returns, Jurassic Park, and NBA Jam – which never had a chance of appearing. It seems SEGA has kept FMV games to a minimum, which is probably for the best.

As for the Mega Drive games, you’ve likely already noticed that many are sequels to games that featured on the first MD Mini. A good mix of hits and cult classics, with games present that never made it to certain parts of the world. Alien Soldier never made it to the US outside of the SEGA Channel service, while Vectorman 2 was US-only. ClayFighter looks like the only real duffer, and even then, it still has its fans.
