Megadrive Mini - Emulation by M2, Menu Music by Yuzo Koshiro, 42 Games (Listed in 1st Post)

Any updates on this’ll? Thinking the jap MD with 6 button pads is the one to get, assuming there’ll be a language select to English in the menu?

I wonder what they'll do with the Genesis release and Mega Man the Wily Wars? I'm pretty sure there isn't a US 60hz rom and the PAL version was pretty awful.

 

If anyone sees any retailers selling the JP six button pad please post em up.

Will those pads be 100% compatible with this then?

 

Fucking hope so. Also it's official and USB so it'd be pretty fucking stupid for them not to be but then it is Sega so I get your reservations.

some great games added, but the addition of stretfighter II makes the decision of 3 buttons pads utterly ridiculous!

I don't think it's hyperbolic to say that all the versions of Wily Wars are pretty awful when compared with the modded / improved / bugfixed versions that exist nowadays. Street Fighter II is another one which won't be such a pleasure if you're more recently used to playing audio / video patched versions.

 

And why Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle? Miracle World needs to take its place as a secret Master System game, surely?

 

These are niche concerns though in the scheme of things.

That blue one you linked to is the actual Megadrive compatible one rather than the USB one though, which is here:

They’ve added Street Fighter II but not three extra buttons to the controllers we’re getting with it.

It’s fine, you can switch between kick and punch with the start button if using a 3-button pad.

 

Spoiler

lol

Vectorman is the most bland shite, I never understand why it keeps getting ported. Terrible game. Alex Kidd on MD is a load of crap compared to Miracle World.


Still not a terrible list but definitely worse than the previous 10.

Never played Vectorman in its day, but I remember Mean Machines Sega raving about it.

 

Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle is indeed a bit meh, but the rest of that list is a great selection imo.

Yep - I agree. Disappointing 10 all in all. Spinball suggests to me that we aren't getting Sonic 3 and S&K. MWIV would be the better Wonderboy game.

 

With only 10 left now I am not convinced we will get the remaining excellent Treasure games (Dynamite Headdy and Rocket Knight Adventures), no EA so far, and not sure Strider and Revenge of Shinobi will both make it.

... They really need to produce something special to get noticed which means no Flicky, no shitty 2d Virtua Fighter 2 and certainly no bloody Vectorman! 

:doh:

With Koshiro making the menu music, there'd basically be bloody murder if Revenge isn't on this. But yes, the other titles are not looking quite as likely now. :(

I played Championship Edition with a 3 button for like 10 years/until Street Fighter 4. It's fine when you don't know any better. :wub:

It had a US release on the SEGA Channel modem service thing, so a US version exists.
