Sega Genesis Mini 2 Gets Rare Price Cut At Amazon

Sega's latest mini retro console didn't release in North America, but you can import it from Japan.

10 Comments

Much like its predecessor, the Sega Genesis Mini 2 is a stellar mini console. Due to its exclusivity to Japan, the Genesis Mini 2 has somewhat flown under the radar since launching last fall. Sega fans who are interested in the console should definitely take a look at Amazon today. The retailer is selling the Sega Genesis Mini 2 for $88.10 (plus $22.30 shipping), which is the lowest price we've seen. The shipping cost is high because you're importing from Japan.

It's worth noting that Sega only manufactured 10% of the stock versus the original Genesis Mini. Though it's a bit surprising to see it available again months after launch, we wouldn't be shocked if the console becomes hard to find for a reasonable price soon.

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.
