The Mega Drive Mini 2 is an interesting little device, offering a new slate of Sega Genesis and Sega CD classics that reaches a little further into the library than the first one. We’ve already seen some of the titles revealed! But there’s a lot more to go. What game do you want to see the most? Here are our picks.
Know what would be cool? If the Mega CD version of Shin Megami Tensei showed up on the Mega Drive Mini 2. I know it is probably more unlikely than some other games. Not to mention the game is more strongly associated with the Super Famicom. But that version did get extra demons! Like, you know, Skuld, Urd, and Verdandi. That’s pretty neat! — Jenni
I don’t have much connection to the Mega Drive/Genesis, being one of the “Nintendo kids” of my elementary school. Still, I did look with some envy on 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 day, like Night Trap. It would be fascinating to be able to play a game that helped launch a moral panic in its day on a machine that somewhat resembles the original hardware of the time.
That being said, Night Trap is already available outside the Sega CD, so barring that, I’d ask for that console’s version of Snatcher. — Josh
While Sega has done a great job of slapping Genesis games on any hardware it can access, the CD stuff’s a bit tougher to come by. Especially the rare releases! So why not bring on the fun and quirky Keio Flying Squadron? One of the few super-Japanese games of the era to not get a total overhaul in the West, it’s a game we could enjoy even if the title (or console itself) doesn’t see a Western release. Many other gems are a lot more text-heavy. — Graham
