Sega has finally confirmed the Sega Mega Drive Mini 2 is coming to Europe (as spotted by Nintendo Life). Up until recently, Sega had yet to confirm whether the console would ever get a release in the region, with doubts growing after it came to light the console would be in short supply.
But now, Sega has put those doubts to rest, announcing on Twitter that the console will be arriving on the same day as the Genesis Mini 2 in North America: October 27th.
The miniature console will contain 60 (+1) games, including ports of popular titles, games that have never been localized before, and even some Sega CD titles. There will also be some differences in the video game library between the Japanese and North American/European releases, with Nintendo Life having the full breakdown.
Perhaps the most baffling of all the announcements is Devi & Pii, an unreleased Mega Drive/Genesis title from Sonic Team's Takashi Iizuka, that has never been released to our knowledge, yet finds itself coming to all regions.
Devi & Pii seems to be a block-breaking title with a bat and child as a mascot. The goal appears to be to protect the child by completing tasks, such as freeing it from a cage or collecting its friends/clones as they fall. You can see a brief demonstration of the game in the video below (at 6:03).

Sad to see no Snatcher 😢
Overall the list is fairly decent, but
I cannot help but be a little disappointed.
Seems like many, many missed opportunities.
If it looks like the original Mega Drive II (my first console that still sits under a TV in my game room) then I’ll track one down at some point. The first mini is excellent and this one has some interesting additions. Since I modded a Wii I have 70+ Mega Drive games, plus those on the first mini, so the Mega CD games intrigue me.
Noice. Didn't play much of the first one tbh but it's very cute. Will probably get this one too as I'm a sucker.
Good that Desert Strike and Sewer Shark made the cut. Very disappointed Snatcher did not make it.
Just give me the EU preorder date already...
So pleased to see this heading to UK shores.
I’m pretty happy with the line up, everyone will always have a change here or there, but overall I think this is decent.
Thumbs up for Sega.
