SEGA has announced a treat for American retro gaming fans with the SEGA Genesis Mini 2 receiving a confirmed US release, complete with October 27th release date. The console has over 50 classic games that were not previously featured on the Genesis Mini, and also comes with SEGA CD titles. The official announcement website states the miniature system is more powerful than before, with a new compact design. It also appears to be exclusively purchasable from Amazon.

This is an interesting lineup to start with, especially the inclusion of SEGA CD games. Noticeably absent from this lineup is Snatcher, the cyberpunk adventure game designed by Hideo Kojima released in the West on Sega CD. There are more games to be revealed, so hope isn’t entirely lost yet. Or maybe SEGA will save it for another mini console!

Are you excited by the included games so far, or is there something missing from the lineup? Let us know your thoughts on the SEGA Genesis Mini 2 below, and keep your eyes on GameLuster for more updates.
