SEGA has delighted fans this week with the latest update regarding their forthcoming Mega Drive Mini console set to hit stores in September this year. With 20 out of the 40 included games already confirmed, they have unveiled the next 10 titles including a few familiar Capcom classics. The remaining 10 will be announced next month. The official announcement follows:
Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, is about to bring the hurt with our next set of games coming to the SEGA Genesis Mini. Once exclusive to the SEGA Channel in North America, Mega Man®: The Wily Wars, a compilation of the first three Mega Man® entries, finds a new home on SEGA Genesis Mini! (We said only 40 games, right? Technically, that’s still true!)
The Blue Bomber will have some competition, though, because here comes a new challenger – Street Fighter II’®: Special Champion Edition – one of the greatest fighting games of all time.
Speaking of which, we’re also happy to announce the Retro-Bit® SEGA Genesis and SEGA Mega Drive 6-button controller will be released in late August with a price point of $19.99. This will surely give you the ultimate advantage, especially on games like Street Fighter II’®: Special Champion Edition, Comix Zone, and Beyond Oasis!
Rounding out the list, we have the notoriously challenging Ghouls ‘n Ghosts®. In order to save the souls stolen by the evil Lucifer, the brave knight Arthur must fight off hordes of demons, and all that stands between him and certain death is a suit of armor.
So to sum up, the latest additions in full are:
- Mega Man: The Wily Wars
- Street Fighter II’: Special Champion Edition
- Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
- Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
- Beyond Oasis
- Golden Axe
- Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium
- Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball
- Wonder Boy in Monster World
