Sega Announces First Genesis Mini/Mega Drive Mini Games and Price for the West

Earlier today, Sega revealed the first batch of ten games for the Mega Drive Mini in Japan, and today they announced the first ten titles that will be pre-loaded in the European version and the Genesis Mini in North America.

This comes with the opening of the official websites for North America and Europe. The Genesis Mini will cost $79.99 and the Mega Drive Mini will have a comparable price in Euros.

Both western versions will include (at least for now) the same titles:

  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Castlevania Bloodlines
  • Space Harrier II
  • Shining Force
  • Dr. Robotnik Mean Bean Machine
  • Toe Jam & Earl
  • Comix Zone
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Altered Beast
  • Gunstar Heroes

The only relevant difference is that Europe will apparently get Castlevania: The New Generation, which is the censored PAL version with no blood, green zombies, and a few more changes to make it less graphic.

By comparison, Japan is getting Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Puyo Puyo 2, Shining Force, Vampire Killer, Wrestleball, Gunstar Heroes, Comix Zone, Rent a Hero, Space Harrier II, and Madou Monogatari I.

Interestingly, it also appears that only the version with two controllers will be offered in the west, while Japan also gets a box with only one for a lower price point.

Thirty more games are scheduled to be revealed at a later time.

Below you can check out the box art of all the announced games for both North America and Europe.
