Sega has teased what could be the best news the Earth has ever received: the possibility of a Dreamcast Mini.
In an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Sega’s Yosuke Okunari explained the future of the company’s mini console line following the release of the Game Gear Micro in Japan.
“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…,” Okunari said via the translated words of Siliconera.
Unfortunately, the creation of a new mini console will take a while. Okunari revealed that the next mini project would be a huge undertaking for SEGA with the device going worldwide instead of the Japanese only release of the Game Gear Micro.
“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,” Okunari.
There’s only one thing that’s certain then: if SEGA makes a SG-1000 Mini instead of a Dreamcast Mini, I’m going to cry.
