Besides those two never-before-seen titles, the Genesis Mini 2 features a few Sega arcade games that are being “ported” to Genesis-level hardware for the first time. These include:
Fantasy Zone: The cute-and-cuddly side-scrolling shooter gets ported to the Genesis by the same team that ported Darius on the first Genesis Mini, with a brand-new Easy Mode that wasn’t in the arcades.
Space Harrier and Space Harrier II: While the sequel was already technically native to the Genesis, these new ports use “modern technology” to provide a much smoother sprite scaling function than was previously possible on 16-bit hardware (it’s unclear if these new ROMs could run on a standard Genesis).
Spatter: A little-known 1984 maze game featuring a clown on a bouncing tricycle.
Super Locomotive: A 1982 train game focused on switching tracks to avoid collisions.
VS Puyo Puyo Sun: A competitive two-player-exclusive “demake” of the third game in the popular color-matching puzzle series, with “new rules not found in the original version.”
