The Sega Genesis Mini is now up for preorder with a slated release date of September 19. 40 games will be pre-loaded onto the console. The full list of games can be found in our “Everything You Need to Know About the Sega Genesis Mini” article. All reports indicate that Sega is going to do this release right. According to our own Seth Macy, “if you have emulation worries, Sega has M2 working on the emulation for its mini console. If you’re unfamiliar with M2, it handled the excellent Sega Ages Collections and also the delightful Sega 3D Classic collections for Nintendo 3DS. It would be hard to find a developer with a better pedigree to handle the software for the first-party Sega Genesis Mini.“
