it was just an example of back in the day. No one said anything about playing Genesis versions of MK or SF.

Yes, I know that- what I'm saying is, take away the fighting games and there's not really much else that uses it (to the point of being gimped without the extra buttons) that we're going to see on this collection.  Regardless, it's just dumb that they're releasing different pads in different regions.

The d-pad on the 6 button was pure sex.

I still really have no interest in this, but it is nice to see them going beyond the same 40 or so games that have been on every Genesis/MD collection since the PS2 days.

They're gonna get my money for this, unlike Capcom with their ridiculous logo-thing.

Is there a SD card slot on it?  The At Games portable has one so all you need to do is just slap the ROMs on one.  Sega's always seemed to have a pretty lax attitude about emulators and ROMs.

No, but AtGames has proven their emulation is dogshit

SNES's internal emulator is really good, and with M2 my hope is their emulator is just as good.

It does have USB slots so at most you would probably be able to plug in a USB stick

I'd be shocked if it doesn't make it. They already licensed Mickey Mouse for two games.

Next ten games were revealed in Japan:

- Ghouls 'n Ghosts
- Street Fighter 2 Special Champion Edition
- Mega Man: The Wily Wars
- Golden Axe
- The Super Shinobi (aka Revenge of Shinobi)
- Phantasy Star IV
- Story of Thor (aka Beyond Oasis)
- Puzzle & Action: Tant-R
- Party Quiz Mega-Q
- Yu Yu Hakusho: Makyou Toitsusen

Safe to say the last three probably won't be on the American version

Also it was confirmed that the Mini would support USB hubs for multitap gameplay (for the 4 player games)

Damn, that's pretty awesome.  I wonder if SF2 will make it onto the other region versions with those three-button pads.  Wily Wars being released would be pretty big since it would technically be the first time it's ever gotten an American release outside of the Sega Channel!  :o

The Yu Yu Hakusho game is made by Treasure and is a precursor of sorts to Guardian Heroes.  It's too bad that will never be officially localized.

I would think SF2 would still be put on the western versions, since the name itself is pretty big and Capcom seems to license it out pretty cheaply since even some of the AtGames clones had it.

RoS almost never gets included on Genesis compilations, but it was on the latest one for XB1/PS4/Switch with all of the bootlegged/licenseed characters altered.

Most of the casual players this is aimed at probably wouldn't notice the difference.  I know when people come over to my place and play the A1UP SF cabinet, they just basically mash the buttons.

They still had Spider-Man due to Sega having the license at the time, which they don't have now.  Also it still used Sonny Chiba's digitized face from the intro to Shadow Warriors and I think the Godzilla boss was still Godzilla and not a skeleton.  A fully infringement-fee version (which makes Spider-Man pink) didn't come out until the Wii Virtual Console/PS3/360 download.  The latest Genesis collection was the first time it was included on a compilation though, maybe Sega doesn't think enough people like the game to include it.

http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/the-revenge-of-shinobi/

Shows that all the licensed stuff and even the title screen did end up getting changed out, so that shouldn't be a problem.

It was on the Dreamcast Sega Smash Pack and then not again until the recent PS4/Xbone/Switch compilation.  That's crazy!

EDIT: It also got released stand-alone on XBLA and PS3, plus mobile, so it has been around recently.

I would totally go for that, even if it didn't use the discs.  I was looking to get a Sega CD, but the prices for a system in decent working condition and most of the games are insane right now.  I can put the games on my modded SNES Classic, but I would gladly give money for a new version of the system.

That was the case last year when AT Games was still involved, at least, dunno if things have changed since Sega took over the whole development themselves.

I believe even the Sonic 3 part for the lock-on is entirely (like for 2) on the & Knuckles ROM. If there's problems of some kind with Sonic 3, there will be with & Knuckles.

Though on Steam they didn't separate them, it's just Sonic 3 & Knuckles: https://store.steampowered.com/app/71162/Sonic_3__Knuckles/

Shadow Dancer would be better for this collection's variety than Revenge of Shinobi.

Why is Vectorman on every Genesis compilation ever. Did anyone ever give a shit about that game?

I'm guessing Sega owns the game so it's an easy freebie or something

And Golden Axe 2 >>>>>> Golden Axe 1. 
I'm still shocked they put Thunder Force III on there over IV.  I'm probably the only person in this world that prefers 3 over 4.  I mastered that game.
I'm not really getting this trickle feed of game reveals of late.  Sony pulled the same shit on it's PS1 mini.   If it's licensing, then just wait to reveal it all.  Or here's an idea... Take a poll and let the consumers decide what their top 40 games are and roll from there.

It's actually pretty good, both updates were sweet and all at once would've maybe undermined some of the additions.

True... they seem to actually put some effort into putting actual classics on there than the crap no one cared about like Kid Chameleon, Greendog and Bonanza Bros..  (probably just jinxed this thing)

For the remaining (10 is it?), here's my preferred list..
- El Viento
- Phantasy Star 2
- Road Rash
- Shining in the Darkness
- Shadow Dancer
- OutRun
- SOR1
- SOR3
- Valis III
- Aladdin

It sold enough back in the day to warrant a sequel.  The gameplay was always subpar, the only reason it was semi-popular was because of the graphics.  I never liked either game and they have not aged well.
