Much like its predecessor, the Sega Genesis Mini 2 is a stellar mini console. Unlike the Genesis Mini, the Mini 2 was not sold in stores. In fact, it was only available to purchase via Amazon Japan, and Sega manufactured significantly less quantities compared to the original. Those decisions at least partially contributed to the Genesis Mini 2 flying under the radar when it launched in Fall 2022. That’s a shame because the Genesis Mini 2 comes with a superior controller and has more built-in games, including some Sega CD gems, previously unreleased games, and a few new ports. If all of that is of interest to you now’s a good time to add the Genesis Mini 2 to your collection.

Amazon is selling the Sega Genesis Mini 2 for $88.56 plus shipping. Though you get to place your order on the Amazon US storefront, the mini console will actually ship from Amazon’s warehouses in Japan. As such, the shipping cost is fairly high at $22.30.

The Sega Genesis Mini is loaded with 61 Sega games, including both Genesis and Sega CD titles. Some of the standouts: Sonic the Hedgehog CD, Sonic 3D Blast, The Revenge of Shinobi, Earthworm Jim 2, Golden Axe 2, Shining Force CD, and Super Street Fighter II – The New Challengers.

On the hardware side, the mini-console comes with a six-button Genesis controller and is compatible with the three-button controllers released with the original Genesis Mini.
