What Mega Drive Mini 2 games do you want?

By on July 2, 2022 0

The Mega Drive Mini 2 is an interesting little device, offering a new roster of Sega Genesis and Sega CD classics that goes a bit deeper in the library than the first. We have already seen some of the titles unveiled! But there is still a lot to do. What game do you most want to see? Here are our picks.

You know what would be cool? If the Mega CD version of Shin Megami Tensei appeared on the Mega Drive Mini 2. I know that’s probably more unlikely than some other games. Not to mention that the game is more strongly associated with the Super Famicom. But this version had additional demons! Like, you know, Skuld, Urd and Verdandi. It’s pretty cool! — jenny

I don’t have much of a Mega Drive/Genesis connection, being one of the “Nintendo kids” at my elementary school. Still, I looked longingly at the Sega CD games that the Sega kids would brag about. Among them were the crop of more “mature” cinematic titles that used FMV and other fancy pants techniques of the time, like Night Trap. It would be fascinating to be able to play a game that helped spark a moral panic in its day on a machine that looks a bit like the original hardware of the time.

That being said, Night Trap is already available outside of the Sega CD, so failing that, I’d ask for that console’s version of Thief. — Josh

While Sega has done a great job slapping the Genesis games onto whatever hardware it can access, the CD content is a little harder to find. Especially the rare releases! So why not bring fun and originality Keio Flight Squadron? One of the few super-Japanese games of the era that didn’t get a total overhaul in the West, it’s a game we could enjoy even if the title (or the console itself) does not see a western exit. Many other gems are much text heavy. — Graham
