After the SEGA Genesis mini’s success, it looks like we’ll be getting another micro-console from SEGA. During an interview with Famitsu magazine, about the future of the mini-console, creative producer at SEGA, Yosuke Okunari, said they are considering making a micro-console of the SEGA Dreamcast, the last system SEGA made before they became a third-party studio.
“For the next Mini, we are considering everything that has been imagined by everyone,” Okunari said in the interview. “I think for the next one, we may go with a concept close to the Mega Drive Mini. If I have to say some names, it could be an SG-1000 Mini or a Dreamcast Mini.”
When discussing the next micro-console, Okunari also mentioned that if they were to do another micro-console, it would be a project with a scope “much bigger as we gaze upon the world.” He added that it would be a year or two before we see another one.
The latest micro-console SEGA released, the Game Gear mini, is only available in Japan starting today. The SEGA Genesis Mini, on the other hand, was released on September 19, 2019.
