Sega released the full list of games that will be on the company’s Genesis Mini console, which is set to launch in September. Similar to the NES and SNES Classic Edition consoles from Nintendo, the Genesis Mini will house a ton of classic games that were released for Sega’s 16-bit console. However, proving the old adage that “Genesis does what Nintendon’t,” the Genesis Mini will feature 42 games, twice as many as the SNES Classic Edition's 21.

There are some expected mainstays, like Sonic the Hedgehog 1 & 2, Altered Beast, Gunstar Heroes, and Golden Axe. However, there are a few lesser-known greats like Contra: Hard Corps, Mega Man: The Wily Wars, Wonder Boy in Monster World, and Ghouls ‘n Ghosts.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
