Much like the NES Classic, Super Nintendo Classic, and PlayStation Classic, Sega is releasing their own retro bundle console using their most famous system. The Sega Genesis Mini aims to bring 40 classic games from the platform back and package them all into one place for the ultimate nostalgia trip.

So far, the full line up of games has not yet been revealed for the mini console, however, today Sega did unveil 10 more titles set to be included in the Sega Genesis Mini.

Among the new games announced, we find familiar faces from the Street Fighter and Mega Man franchises. Street Fighter 2: Special Champion Edition and Mega Man: The Wily Wars are both to be included in the miniature console.

Mega Man: The Wily Wars is a compilation game that remakes the first three Mega Man games from the NES, while Street Fighter 2: Special Champion Edition was a port of Champion Edition that also brought in all of the content from Street Fighter 2 Turbo.

Also included in the 10 games announced today for the Sega Genesis Mini are Beyond Oasis, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Golden Axe, Phantasy Star 4: The End of the Millennium, Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball, Vectorman, and Wonder Boy in Monster World.

Of the games announced so far, Street Fighter 2: Special Champion Edition, Beyond Oasis, and Comix Zone all utilize a six-button layout, but the Sega Genesis Mini comes equipped with two three-button classic Genesis controllers. Fortunately, Retro-Bit is collaborating with Sega to release their own six-button controller specifically for the Genesis Mini that will retail for $19.99 USD and is scheduled for an August release — the month prior to the mini console's launch.

The Sega Genesis Mini is due out in the U.S. on September 19th. It will come with a price tag of $79.99 USD, and includes a power cable, HDMI cable, and the two controllers.
