Sega will release a similar Sega Genesis Mini 2 console in North America on October 27. The console will include more than 50 games, and some titles differ from the Mega Drive Mini 2 console.

Sega released the Mega Drive Mini console in Japan in September 2019, and in the U.S. under the name Sega Genesis Mini on the same day. Both versions of the console featured 42 games, although the games each console included differed.

The Mega Drive was Sega's third console, and Sega released the console in Japan in 1989. Sega released the console in the same year in North America under the name Sega Genesis. Sega withdrew from the games console market in 2001.

Update: Edited title and article to reflect "more" games as opposed to "last" games. Thanks, David Matoushek.
