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.
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.
