It will be released in October, at least in Japan, and this time it carries titles like Sonic CD, Silpheed and Shining Force CD, released on CD Rom.
Sega has revealed the “new project” that it had hinted at a few days ago, and as expected, it is related to the company’s retro catalog. During a presentation, its new mini console model is confirmed, the Mega Drive 2 Mini, a revision of the Mega Drive -which already had its miniature replica- although this time it brings some unexpected surprises.
Mega Drive 2 Mini includes a catalog of 50 installed titles that are not limited to cartridges for this platform – among them Virtua Racing , Bonanza Bros. – but also Mega CD games , the accessory console that added a CD player to Mega Drive. Some of the first games confirmed at the presentation are Shining Force CD , Silpheed , Mansion of Hidden Souls , Popful Mail and of course Sonic CD , the most emblematic title of this system released in the early 90 ‘ s . This is the list of confirmed games:
- Bonanza Bros.
- Fantasy Zone
- Magical Taruruuto-kun
- Shining in the Darkness
- Thunder Force IV (Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar)
- Virtua Racing
- Mansion of Hidden Souls
- Popful Mail
- Shining Force CD
- Sonic the Hedgehog CD
Mega Drive Mini 2 will be released in Japan on October 27 and will be priced at 9,980 yen. At the moment the presentation is focused on the Japanese public and there is no mention of dates or price in Spain and the rest of the West.
