Is Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 Going to be Worldwide
Sega Mega Drive Mini 2? Currently, there are no specific plans for a worldwide release date for the Sega Mega Drive Mini 2. Sega Genesis Mini 2 is expected to be the name of the North American edition.
Sega’s newest mini retro console was unveiled in Japan, but an interview that aired immediately afterward appeared to confirm plans for an international launch, which appears to include Europe and the United States.
The Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 will be available in every country.
However, the North American and European versions of the system, which we may assume will come after the Japanese version, have yet to be officially confirmed by the business.
Sonic CD, Thunder Force 4, and Virtua Racing will all be included in the Sega Mega Drive Mini 2’s 50-game library when it goes on sale. There will also be exclusive Sega CD-ROM games in the list, as well as games that were launched for the Sega Gensis CD-ROM add-on. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also be able to purchase an adorable Sega CD tiny accessory for your Mega Drive Mini 2, but it won’t provide any functionality. In Japan, the Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 and the Sega CD adapter will cost a total of 9,980 (about $75). It’s all you’d hope and features one of the best game lineups of any retro consoles, we wrote in our review of the original Sega Genesis Mini when it launched in 2019. Let’s hope that the second one is even more impressive.
According to VGC, these are the games that have been confirmed thus far:
Two brothers from the Bonanza family (Mega Drive)
The Fantastical Area (because Fantasy Zone never hit the Mega Drive, this version is a port based on Super Fantasy Zone)
Taruruto, the Magician (Mega Drive)
In the Shadows: A Glow (Mega Drive)
Fourth Generation Thunderbolt III (Mega Drive)
Athlon Sports (Mega Drive)
The House of Secret Souls (Mega CD)
Inflated Mail (Mega CD)
CD of Shining Force (Mega CD)
“Silpheed” (Mega CD)
a Sonic CD (Mega CD)
Q1: How are Sega Mega Drive 1 and 2 different?
The first Mega Drive is superior in every way compared to the second. Improvements in video and sound encoding, improved PCB design, and more. Using RGB SCART on an MD1 will be easier and more visually appealing than using it on an MD2. Because Model 2s are slightly newer, and employ slightly fresher capacitors, I believe they will survive longer.
Q2: Can I play Genesis games on my Sega Mega Drive 2?
Is it possible to play Mega Drive games on the Mega Drive 2? Yes, and no There are two exceptions to this rule: any game from 1988-1992 (with the exception of two titles from 92) will work on any region’s console. You can play PAL games in the same way you play Genesis games because they are the same size and shape.
Q3: Is Mega Drive 2 a type of home video game console?
As a result of the Mega Drive II’s redesign in 1993, both manufacturing and retail costs were reduced. Compared to the original, it was significantly smaller and square in shape. In addition, there was no volume control or RF TV output on board.
Q4: Is it possible to play Mega Drive 1 games on Mega Drive 2?
Although the cartridges are physically compatible, running import games requires hardware modification. In order to play Japanese Mega Drive games, you must remove some plastic from the cartridge slot and change the region setting.
Q5: Are Genesis and Mega Drive the same?
Sega’s third console, Genesis succeeded the Master System as the company’s third console. Sega released the Mega Drive in Japan in 1988 and the Genesis in North America in 1989. Virgin Mastertronic distributed it in Europe as the Mega Drive in 1990, Ozisoft in Australasia and Tec Toy in Brazil as the Mega Drive.
