    I sold my modded Genesis Mini because the input lag on it frankly was terrible compared to the original hardware, and went out and bought an original Genesis. But it is very nice to see these games all get rereleased. Very cool to see the unreleased Fantasy Zone port to the Genesis end up on this as well!

    I mean yeah ok cool. If Sega brings to the U.S. I'd be fine with it but some of those Sega CD games probably won't make it. idk if Working Designs even holds the rights to Popful Mail anymore.

    I had heard this was coming but didn't expect to see Fantasy Zone or the Sega CD titles. The article mentions there's going to be a mini 32X too? Does this mean they might finally acknowledge Knuckles Chaotix?

    There's no 32X support. It's a cosmetic attachment.

    Yes I understood that part but the CD is also cosmetic and they are doing CD games, so....

    In fact it should have a PBC for Fantasy Zone, just go all out with the accessories.

    I assumed that Fantasy Zone was going to be the Mega Drive homebrew port, similar to the Darius port in the previous mini.

    Currently known games:
    - Silpheed (Mega CD)
    - Shining Force CD (Mega CD)
    - Sonic CD (Mega CD)
    - Mansion of Hidden Souls (Mega CD)
    - Popful Mail (Mega CD)
    - Virtua Racing (Mega Drive)
    - Bonanza Bros (Mega Drive)
    - Shining in the Darkness (Mega Drive)
    - Thunder Force IV (Mega Drive)
    - Magical Taruruto (Mega Drive)
    - Fantasy Zone (new Mega Drive port)

    Well this is a pleasant surprise. I know everyone was secretly hoping for a Dreamcast Mini, but the addition of Sega CD games and some of the more notable missing Genesis titles makes this a tempting buy for me. I would really love to see some 32X games as well.

    Thunder Force IV!

    It's going to be weird if S3&K doesn't end up in there, at least put the PC soundtrack version on it. If there's a western version of this, my guess is games like Magical Taruruto will be swapped out

    Heard about this yesterday. Really surprised they are throwing CD games in. Long shot hoping they throw in the cancelled Phantasy Star 4 in there, even if it's not translated and in a very rough form.Near zero chance of that, I know.

    Games I'd like to see on it tho if it gets a Western release:

    - Sonic 3 & Knuckles
    - NBA Jam '97
    - Zero Tolerance
    - Snatcher
    - Sol Feace
    - Mickey Mania
    - Columns 3
    - Comix Zone
    - The Ooze
    - The Second Samurai

    I'll be blown away if they include Snatcher on this thing.

    I'm not sure if this will come to the U.S. These mini consoles here in the States are designed for casual gamers itching for a retro fix, and the first Genesis mini already has the most well known Genesis games. Selling this as a "Genesis Mini 2" won't make sense to most consumers, and most probably won't even recognize that there were numerous redesigns of the Genesis.

    Right now, this would be like Nintendo releasing an NES mini 2 with no Mario or Zelda games as those were already on the first.

    Maybe this could come to the U.S. in a way that the TG-16 mini did - by mail order only. The TG-16 was certainly the most hardcore mini console and likely wouldn't have sold very well at retail.

    Of course, if Sega can get Sonic 3 and/or Knuckles, and possibly Outrun on this mini, those games could be shown on the box cover and would be recognizable to more than just hardcore Sega fans.

    Okunari has already said they're planning to release it in the US. Sales of the first Genesis Mini were higher in the US than elsewhere. Due to chip shortage issues, they're not sure when the actual release will occur, and they probably still have a lot to figure out with licensing and game selection.

    But as you say, I can see this being restricted to online only. I think they might have had an excess inventory problem with the Genesis Mini. I seem to recall it being sold for half the original sale price at one point.

    Famitsu also just announced that 20 of the 50+ games will be Mega CD games.

    https://www.famitsu.com/news/202206/03263208.html

    In that interview, Okunari also says they're NOT including any 32X games. "If we could easily emulate the 32X's two CPUs, then we could just go ahead and release a Saturn Mini."
