Sega could also be launching a mini model of its 1998 console; the Sega Dreamcast if feedback by Sega Japan artistic producer Yosuke Okunari are something to go by.
Mr Okunari was talking in an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu (noticed by Ryokutya2089 and translated by Siliconera) through which he was speaking concerning the current launch of the Sport Gear Micro earlier this 12 months, and requested on what mini-consoles the group would possibly work on subsequent.
He started by stating the group have been “considering everything that has been imagined by everyone” however went on to say that “It doesn’t mean we can realize all of them. We are also thinking about projects that nobody has imagined.” Nonetheless, he did add “I believe for the following one, we could go together with an idea near the Mega Drive Mini. If I’ve to say some names, it could possibly be an SG-1000 Mini or a Dreamcast Mini…”
It is definitely no assure, after all, with Okunari reminding us that “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.” He additionally famous that we could also be ready a bit of longer for the following one, because the Sport Gear Micro is solely at present offered in Japan, saying: ” 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.”
The Dreamcast launched again in 1998 in Japan and in 1999 within the West, in addition to being the console that introduced us Sonic Journey, Jet Set Radio, Loopy Taxi, Shenmue and lots of different a lot liked video games, it was additionally distinctive for having what was often known as the Visible Reminiscence Unit or VMU—a kind of reminiscence card that included a display screen and buttons that would play mini-games when used with sure titles. Whether or not this might translate in any respect to a mini-version of the console is, after all, anybody’s guess at this level.
We’ll have to attend and see if something comes of this, however we would definitely be up for some traditional Loopy Taxi motion.
