That is a link to Streets of Rage 4 that's imminently due.

But, a Saturn mini would be ace.

Now this I would be interested in. Never had much to do with the Saturn so would love to give some of them a bash.

While it would be nice, I doubt it would ever happen. You'd need to get the Saturn emulation just right and even then besides Japan, there's no mainstream nostalgia for the Saturn like the Mega Drive had for people to day one it, and even the curious will probably fine the 3D visuals dated (Even though it was more a 2D machine, but how could you do one without including Nights?). Getting the emulation right is just not worth the time and money for something that might do well in Japan but would likely flop everywhere else for SEGA.

Least with a Dreamcast Mini, graphics won't be an issue and more players would know titles like Sonic Adventure 1+2 and Crazy Taxi alone to sell.

Nights, Daytona USA and Radiant Silvergun have been given HD reboots and the Virtua Cop games and Sega Rally Championship have done the rounds on other systems as well.

They dont feel right though

I cant be the only one that thought NiGHTS HD was to much to look at
The PS2 in Japan
We never got a port of the third Virtua Cop game

Like with other mini machines I probably wont buy one

Back in the day I’d have probably given a limb for a Saturn with Shin Shinobi Den, Burning Rangers, Deep Fear, Keios Flying Squadron and D2.

Sadly I imagine a Saturn Mini would be missing all those games and instead have Virtual Fighter 2, Shining Force, Sega Rally probably Exhumed as Saturn has the best version, Bomberman games, Sports game and Panzer Dragon.

Looks like I will need to buy a pal Saturn to play my Pal Keios Flying Squadron

Kinda defeats the purpose of reliving the Saturn though. Even the PS1 Classic used the original version of FFVII instead of the PS4/XBONE/Switch version that looks a little better (Granted, that does not excuse using the PAL versions, but originals none the less.).

I suppose a Japanese version would have Sakura Wars too, which would be a great excuse for SEGA to translate it but ehh......

It'd probably be the only mini I'd acctually buy as theres always a worry in the back of my mind that the disc drives will clapout and there wont be any parts.

Fun fact, Segata is acctually back, he's in adverts for Nissin UFO noodles and while reffered to as 'The Legend' it's pretty apparent it is Segata Sanshiro returned from space.

No idea, I can't find the ad where he reappears, just the one where he's in his new supersuit and transforms into a motorcycle (yes I am on drugs, no I am not making this up),I only found out about it when looking up some new Ramen to try.
