SEGA’s Yosuke Okunari teases future mini console projects after the Game Gear Micro, including a possible Dreamcast Mini

    In the latest issue of Famitsu, SEGA’s Yosuke Okunari teases future projects involving mini consoles. SEGA has been in the market with their own mini-consoles since the SEGA Genesis Mini, leading up to the Game Gear Micro. Okunari talks about SEGA’s plans for a new mini console and here’s what he had to say:

    • “For the next Mini, we are considering everything that has been imagined by everyone.”

    • “Of course, it doesn’t mean we can realize all of them. We are also thinking about projects that nobody has imagined.”

    • “The projects are moved by a substantial amount of money, so we’re working first on the one that, realistically speaking, has the highest possibility.”

    • “The Game Gear Micro is only sold domestically in Japan. When we do the next one, I feel like the project scope will be much bigger as we gaze upon the world. So we won’t be able to release it at this time the next year or two years after the Mega Drive Mini. We can’t make it that quickly. (laughs)”

    • “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…”

    It will probably be a while before SEGA fans get a Dreamcast Mini but the hope and interest from SEGA is definitely there. In the meantime, stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news!
