New Sega Genesis Mini Trailer Pushes Nostalgia Buttons

We are a little over a month away from the release of Sega's Genesis Mini console in the US, and a new trailer has been released that shows off some of the 42 titles that you'll be able to enjoy / re-enjoy starting on September 19th.

Needless to say, the nostalgia factor is high - but there's going to be some new Genesis experiences as well. As you'll see in the video, Sega makes a point of highlighting the bonus games Tetris and Darius, which were never officially released on the original console. You can check out the full lineup of games below, and if you like what you see you can pre-order the Sega Genesis Mini via Walmart (free fast shipping) and Amazon (free fast shipping for Prime members) for $79.99.

On a related note pre-orders for the TurboGrafx-16 Mini are open on Amazon for $99.99 with a release set for March 20th.

The console will include nearly 50 games that cover the catalog of both the TurboGrafx-16 console and its PC Engine Japanese counterpart. Specifically, 24 American games and 26 Japanese games are included in their native language, and Konami notes that there is some overlap between the U.S. and Japanese games (Neutopia and Neutopia II for example). So, the number of unique games falls slightly short of 50, but this is still an interesting twist on the mini console formula that we've seen from Nintendo, Sega, and Sony.
