Dynamite Headdy was always an obvious candidate, but I'm glad to see it here! Great game!

Never heard of it. Looks a bit naff.

It's the predecessor to Cybernator on SNES.  It's actually getting a sequel on PS4!

 

EDIT: Ooh Langrisser 2! Shame there's no English version...

We are halfway through the games and I gotta say, i'm not impressed with what they've held back for the final 10.

Woah! Slap Fight! They've got Toaplan/Cave support!! :D

 

And Snow Bros too! Those games are worth MONEY on the second hand market!

I have literally never heard of this last one...

 

No Rocket Knight Adventures? Surely not!!

Yeah, pretty rubbish lineup up for the last 10, IMO. The saving grace is that there are a few games on the Japanese final 10 that will certainly be changed for the Western release. Here's hoping we get something a little better.

Ahh! A surprise extra game!

 

Too bad it's Darius.  Never liked that series much :heh:

 

Wait... this is a new version? It's actually a homebrew game!? That's so cool!!

So... all of these games that have just been announced, chances are that we aren't even getting them in our version I'm guessing?

They should really just include all of the dfferent lineups on every region of the console and let us choose because it's certainly not technically impossible.

I want to get this but... I have a Mega SG and while I'm glad that they have a version of Snow Bros on at least one of the variants...

...I like my super legit and totally not an aftermarket cartridge from back on the day which requires me to attach it to a converter to safely use. :blush:

No Sonic 3.  No Rocket Knight Adventures.

 

This is bogus! (Alisha Dragoon and Light Cruisader are good gets though; and I'm really glad to see Monster World 4 finally get a physical release in the west!)

 

Honestly shocked that they're including Eternal Champions though! Surely that would rocket up the age rating? There were quite a few people asking for it, but I never expected them to actually go for it! It makes Mortal Kombat 1-3 look tame!

 

VF2, Kid Chameleon and Columns are just wasted slots though.  Nobody wanted those.

 

Asian version is the only one to get Alien Soldier confirmed.  Guess that's the one I'm getting then!

Aw, was hoping for Soleil. Guess I'll just dig up my cart.

Why bother with Columns when you have Tetris?

Happy about Monster World IV, been wanting to play that one.

I like that they just didn't stick to the usual suspects and got some fairly out there games on there.

The case is cool as well: https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B07S9QPK88/

Where are you planning on getting that from?

Edit: Oh I see Play-Asia have it.

The complete Western games list (thanks to Nintendolife), with my favourites in bold:

 

  • Tetris
  • Darius
  • Virtua Fighter 2
  • Alisia Dragoon
  • Monster World IV
  • Kid Chameleon
  • Road Rash II
  • Eternal Champions
  • Columns
  • Dynamite Headdy
  • Strider
  • Light Crusader
  • Mega Man: The Wily Wars
  • Street Fighter II': Special Champion Edition
  • Ghouls 'n Ghosts
  • Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
  • Beyond Oasis
  • Golden Axe
  • Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium
  • Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball
  • Vectorman
  • Wonder Boy in Monster World
  • Earthworm Jim
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
  • World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
  • Contra: Hard Corps
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Thunder Force III
  • Super Fantasy Zone
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Landstalker
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Space Harrier 2
  • Shining Force
  • Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
  • ToeJam & Earl
  • Comix Zone
  • Altered Beast
  • Gunstar Heroes

 

For me, the Mega Drive Mini is annoyingly tempting yet incomplete.  I'd rather have the coin-op versions of Golden Axe, Altered Beast and Ghouls 'n' Ghosts, though I can't deny they were all a big part of the Mega Drive experience at the time.  Virtua Fighter 2 is something I'd prefer the true Model 2 port of, either on Sega Ages or a Sega Home Arcade stick, and as for SFII with 3-button pads... :p.  I said when this was first announced that it'd be better if it was about 80 games - greedy, I know, but these mini consoles need to be definitive as you can't add games to them.  Seems a shame not to have Streets of Rage 3 in particular.
