Sega's " Mega Drive Mini 2 ", the second in the "Mega Drive Mini" series, is scheduled for release on October 27, 2022 (Thursday ).
The 23 titles currently announced include the bonus titles "Fantasy Zone" and "Star Mobile," which will be included for the first time, as well as "Magical Taruruto-kun" and "Nadia of the Mysterious Sea," which are miracles in themselves to be included. The first eleven titles announced in the first phase of the game, and the second eleven titles announced in the second phase of the game, are all new titles that are sure to be included in the game.
In addition to the 11 titles announced in the first round and the 11 titles announced in the second round, the inclusion of "Alien Soldier " has also been announced, which is also very exciting.
We can only hope that there will be more surprises in the third announcement on July 15, 2022 (Friday)... but we'll have to wait and see!
There is a lot to talk about besides the titles included in the Mega Drive Mini 2, such as the reissue of the"Cyber Stick," an intelligent controller with analog compatibility. You remember that an overseas version of the "Genesis Mini " was also released with a different design than the included titles, don't you?
Since it was also available in Japan, many of you probably have both the "Mega Drive Mini" and the "Genesis Mini" and keep them side by side.
Since Sega is very popular overseas, there's no way that this one will be released only in Japan!
The international version of the Mega Drive Mini 2, the Genesis Mini 2, has been announced!
