SEGA Mega Drive Mini in Asia gets Sword of Vermillion and OutRun 2019 as exclusives

SEGA will also be selling the SEGA Mega Drive Mini in Asia, they promised the same amount of games as the rest of the regions. 40 games. SEGA is only planning on selling the units as one SKU in that area with two controllers. So far Japan is the only place to have a cheaper, single controller bundle.

Here are the games announced for the SEGA Mega Drive Mini Asian version will have a lot of the games found in the Japanese version including Space Harrier II, Wrestleball, Shining Force, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Gunstar Heroes, Castlevania: Bloodlines, Puyo Puyo Tsu, and Comix Zone. The two exclusives (so far) to the Asian version are Sword of Vermilion and OutRun 2019.

Yeah, I didn’t expect OutRun 2019 to be included in this collection. Very meta, considering its coming out this year… in 2019. The future is now!

SEGA Tunes: Outrun 2019’s Victorious and Feel the Beat

Screw the people who criticized the Genesis’s sound capabilities: they’ve clearly never heard Outrun 2019. This is the sort of soundtrack you want to listen to when your cruising down a road at 500 miles per hour! 2019 is one of the better examples of Genesis music I’ve heard, but I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. Outrun has a heck of a legacy when it comes to video game music, especially since the original game probably has one of the best SEGA arcade soundtracks out there.

Hope you enjoyed Victorious! Please go below the fold for another awesome track, Feel the Beat.
