The Mega Drive Mini 2 will come with a catalogue of 50 games. At the time of writing, Sega have only revealed 11 games that will come pre-installed, with the inclusion of Shining Force CD, Popful Mail, and Shining in the Darkness being notable for RPG fans. The full list of the 11 games revealed so far is as follows:

Currently, we don’t yet know if the Mega Drive Mini 2 will release in the West, but seeing as the first iteration released worldwide it seems somewhat likely that the mini console will make its way here.
