The Mega Drive Mini 2 Has Been Announced And Will Include Mega CD Games – Forbes

by Bioreports

The Mega Drive Mini 2 is released in Japan this October.


Following the success of the first Mega Drive Mini, Sega has announced the Mega Drive Mini 2 that will also feature Mega CD games.

It was an inevitability that Sega would follow up its Mega Drive Mini with an updated version, not least because of the huge gaming catalogue at their disposal but also to cater to Mega CD releases.

The Mega Drive Mini 2 will have 50 new games included on it, and it will also come with a variety of mostly cosmetic accessories. Namely the dock and Mega CD player, though sadly not functional.

The current roster of games that are currently announced are as follows:

Cartridge Titles

  • Bonanza Bros.
  • Fantasy Zone
  • Magical Taruruuto-kun
  • Shining in the Darkness
  • Thunder Force IV
  • Virtua Racing

Mega CD Titles

  • Mansion of Hidden Souls
  • Popful Mail
  • Shining Force CD
  • Silpheed
  • Sonic the Hedgehog CD

The main Mega Drive Mini 2 console will cost 10,978 yen (or around $84) and will be released in Japan on October 27. The cosmetic add-on Mega Drive Tower Mini 2 will cost 4,950 yen (or around $38) and be released on the same day.

While this is currently Japan only release, like the first Mega Drive Mini I full expect it to come Westward not long after its Japanese release.
