From Tetris to Sonic: Check out the full lineup of games for the Sega Genesis Mini

We finally have the full list of confirmed games coming to the Sega Genesis Mini, Sega's answer to the NES and SNES Classic. Highlights include Kid Chameleon, Tetris (a bonus game that wasn't originally included), and Road Rush II.

The retro console will release on September 19, 2019 with 42 games, emulation handled by M2 (who worked on the Sega Ages Collections and Sega 3D Classics Collection for 3DS), and menu music created by celebrated composer Yuzo Koshiro. It's a highly anticipated release that could rival Nintendo's forays into commercialized emulation. 

Here's a list of all 42 games coming to the console:

  • Tetris

Preorders, currently listed for $79.99 for the Genesis Mini are currently open on Sega's official site. It's likely that we'll see a lot of demand for the console after Sega originally delayed its release due to a fan response that was much bigger than expected. The complete package comes with the system, two controllers, a power cable, USB power adaptor and a HDMI cable.
