After seeing a retro revival of the NES Mini, the SNES Mini and the miniature PlayStation Classic there was only one console missing; the Sega Genesis. This year we’ll finally see a release of the console that brought Sonic the Hedgehog to the world.
What’s the deal?
Just like the NES Classic Mini, the Sega Genesis Mini (or Sega Megadrive if you’re non from the US) is a smaller version of the original eighties game console. It contains 40 built-in games, which is around half of the entire Sega Genesis catalog.
These are the currently known games that will come with the Genesis Mini
- Ecco the Dolphin
- Castlevania: Bloodlines
- Space Harrier 2
- Shining Force
- Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
- Toe Jam & Earl
- Comix Zone
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Altered Beast
- Gunstar Heroes
The mini console connects to your TV with HDMI and will come shipped with 2 wired controllers and a USB power adapter.

While the other built-in games will still be announced (in waves of 10), we already know that the release date will be September 19, 2019.
