The Sega Genesis Mini 2 will be released in North America on Oct. 27, the company announced Wednesday. The second edition mini console is now available for preorder exclusively on Amazon

Fans will be able to play over 50 classic games and CD titles on the updated console, and current Sega Genesis Mini controllers will be compatible, Sega said. The company previously revealed the new console in June for sales in Japan, but only confirmed Wednesday that it would be available in the US in October. 

The new mini console will come with a six-button control pad. Sega said that the Mini 2 has a "bigger and more impressive lineup" of games than the Sega Mini, as well as a "never-released" bonus game. Some of the classic CD games that users can play are Sonic CD, Shining Force, Silpheed, Mansion of Hidden Souls, Night Striker and The Ninja Warriors.

Preordering the Sega Genesis Mini 2 from Amazon costs $103.80 and $21.99 shipping, for a total landed price of just under $126.
