Highlights:

  • The Sega Genesis Mini was announced in 2018 and will launch in the US on September 19, 2019.
  • It will come with two controllers in the box.
  • It will come with 40 games, 10 of which have been revealed.

 

The Sega Genesis Mini has a release date. The console will launch on September 19, 2019. The console was first announced at the annual Sega Fest event in Tokyo in 2018 and the final release date was announced at the same event this year. The console will come with two USB controllers in the box along with a USB to Micro-B power cable and an HDMI cable. The console will come preloaded with 40 games, 10 of which have been revealed. It is priced at $79.99 USD/£69.99/€79.99/ $139.95 AUD which translates to roughly Rs 5,500 approx directly converted. Speaking of the “mini” size, the console is approximately 55% of the size of the original Genesis or Mega Drive. 

According to IGN, “Sega also revealed that AtGames, the company behind 2017’s poorly received Sega Genesis Flashback, is no longer involved in its production. Instead, longtime collaborator M2 is handling the ports, having previously delivered high-quality conversions for the SEGA AGES series and SEGA 3D Classics Collection.” This could possibly be the reason for the delay in the console hitting store shelves. 

When it comes to the revealed games, Sonic the Hedgehog, Ecco the Dolphin, Castlevania: Bloodlines, Space Harrier 2, Shining Force, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, ToeJam & Earl, Comix Zone, Altered Beast and Gunstar Heroes have been revealed. More information about the remaining 30 games will be revealed in the future.

With the launch of the Nintendo classic, we have seen the birth of the classic gaming consoles. The PlayStation Classic, when it launched was met with an underwhelming response (we're putting it mildly here) because of the game library the console brought with it. The lacklustre response of the PS One Classic and the success of the NES Classic proves that it is the library of games that will help the classic console succeed or fail.
