The Sega team could launch a Dreamcast Mini in the future. This is now indicated by a person in charge of the company. Accordingly, Sega is currently thinking about which console could get a new edition. The lesser known SG-1000 also came up here. The Dreamcast has sold over 10.6 million times worldwide.
In an interview with the Japanese Famitsu, a person in charge of Sega indicated the publication of a mini re-edition of Dreamcast. Yosuke Okunari spoke here about the company's future plans. After the "Mega Drive Mini" was launched in 2019 and players in Japan recently enjoyed the "Game Gear Micro", it now seems to be the turn of a console again.
"I think next we'll be pursuing a concept that is closer to the Mega Drive Mini. If I have to say a few names it would be an SG-1000 Mini or a Dreamcast Mini…"
It is very likely that Sega would prefer the Dreamcast Mini here. The SG-1000 was released in 1983 at the same time as the Famicom (NES) by Nintendo in Japan – with almost 1.6 million units, however, it was unable to match the success of the NES with 61.9 million units. The SG-1000 was never marketed anywhere in the world. The Dreamcast has sold 10.6 million times worldwide. Fans would have to wait a little longer for a mini version.
According to Yosuke Okunari, it is not possible for Sega to bring the console onto the market in a year. Retro fans can have their hopes, however. Dreamcast's most successful games include titles like Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, Shenmue, Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Virtua Fighter, and more.
