Over 50 games of the original Sega Mega Drive and its CD add-on are confirmed for the new mini-console, plus never-before-released ports.
After the success of the Sega Mega Drive Mini, we all thought/hoped that Sega would give the same treatment to the Sega Saturn or Dreamcast console.
Unfortunately, this is unlikely as it would be too complex and expensive. On the plus side, the Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 looks even better than its predecessor.
Announced earlier this year, it promises over 50 games not only from the Mega Drive but also for the Mega CD add-on, plus some bonus titles that were never released for the original console.
We were only aware of 11 of these at first, but Sega has since updated the site to reveal the full library, confirming that exactly 60 games will be available.
12 of these are Mega CD games, and another seven are bonus titles, like a new port of Fantasy Zone. That leaves the remaining 41 as classic Mega Drive games.

Looking at the list, Sega seems to have decided not to add any of the games from the first Mega Drive Mini and to focus on titles that were missed last time, like OutRun and Ristar.
The Mega Drive Mini 2 also has sequels to games from the first console, such as Streets Of Rage 3 and ToeJam & Earl In Panic On Funkotron.
The console will be out in Japan in October, but we’re still waiting for western release dates.
Regardless of when exactly it comes out, pre-orders will go live in Europe in September, but you’ll need to be quick if you order one, as Sega has already warned that stocks in the west will be limited.
Mini consoles tend to have a very limited supply anyway, but it’s not clear how close the Mega Drive Mini 2 will be.
