Is SEGA launching a new console?

SEGA has “shot out” one console after the other after the success of the Mega Drive, most recently the Dreamcast (1998). After that they stopped producing their own home video game hardware and just made more games. Mini consoles from Game Gear and Mega Drive followed. The Japanese company has now announced that it will unveil a “new project” – possibly a new one – next week on Friday 3 June 2022 new console.

A tweet on the official Japanese Sega Twitter account read: “Urgent notice! The live broadcast announcing Sega’s new project will air on June 3 at 8:00 p.m.

SEGA with a new console at the start? – Live stream next Friday

Hiroyuki Miyazaki and Yosuke Okunari will have their appearance in the live stream. In addition to the announcement, there was a Mega Drive controller as a chocolate cake on Twitter.

The presence of Miyazaki and Okunari suggests that this is a new one SEGA Mini-Console could act. Both were already present at the announcement of the Mega Drive Mini 2019.

Okunari is a producer at Sega and has worked almost exclusively on retro re-releases for the company for the past 15 years, including the Sega Ages 2500 series on PS2die Sega 3D Classics series on 3DS and the Sega Ages series on Nintendo Switch. He was also the content director for the Sega Mega Drive Mini console, released in 2019 (via VGC).

Miyazaki is currently Executive Manager at SEGA and most recently Project Manager at Mega Drive Mini. So everything would indicate that it is a new console acts. Maybe a Dreamcast Mini, which die-hard fans would pounce on. Okunari already mentioned the console to the Japanese Famitsu: “I think for the next one we might choose a concept that is close to the Mega Drive Mini. If I have to name a few, it could be an SG-1000 Mini or a Dreamcast Mini.”

At 13:00 next Friday 3 June 2022 we will know more: SEGA Japan’s YouTube channel will be used for the live stream. Above you can find the video we embedded.
