Preorder The Sega Genesis Mini Now

If you are a fan of vintage game consoles, you likely already know that the SEGA Genesis Mini is coming soon. The revamped miniature version of the classic 16-bit console arrives on September 19, 2019. It will come with 40 games, and a save state function.

Judging by how previous mini consoles have sold, this one might not be available for long and will probably be hard to find. While there is still not a full list of games for the U.S. version, we know what some of those games are and the lineup is looking pretty damn good:

  • Altered Beast
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Comix Zone
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Shining Force
  • Sonic The Hedgehog
  • Space Harrier II
  • ToeJam & Earl

Hopefully, the rest of that game list lives up to this release. I’d be happy if they included that classic SEGA X-Man game, but that’s just me.

You can preorder the Genesis Mini right now from Walmart for $80. It comes with two bundled controllers. This will likely sell out fast, but you never know. Nintendo’s consoles were difficult to find, but Sony’s PlayStation Classic was a big flop. I wouldn’t take the gamble, and would order it right away if you want one.

If you’re a really hardcore Genesis fan, you should also check out the high-end Analogue Mega Sg, a $189 FPGA-based console which is already getting rave reviews for its quality, and its ability to play over 2,000 original Genesis, Mega Drive, and Master System cartridges on modern displays via HDMI.
