The first Sega Genesis Mini released back in 2019, and now, Sega is back with a follow-up version. The Sega Genesis Mini 2 is coming to North America on October 27.

So, obviously, the main question here is – what’s different about the Genesis Mini 2? According to Sega, it boasts “even more power” and includes new games.

With the new version, gamers can expect “unreleased” titles that didn’t make their way to the first miniature console. Additionally, the Genesis Mini 2 adds Sega CD titles.

Sadly, it doesn’t look like it will be getting a direct US release, but dedicated players should still be able to snag one from Japan through Amazon.

The Genesis Mini 2 will be packed with games

In total, there will be over 50 games available for people to enjoy. If you are curious about which games will be available on the tiny console, check out the full list below.

Sega Genesis Mini owners can use their controllers with the new console

Another important note is that owners of the previous version will still be able to use their controllers with the new mini console.

That said, the new version does come with the six-button Genesis controller, whereas the first version used the three-button controller.

Also, if you couldn’t tell, the Genesis Mini 2 has an updated casing to match newer generations of the original console.

We don’t know the exact price of the Sega Genesis Mini 2 (most likely under $100), but there is already an Amazon page set up for it, where it will be sold exclusively.
