Sega's Mega Drive Mini 2 launched last week, and, if you were lucky enough to snag a Japanese model, you might have noticed something interesting about the packaging.

On the inner flap of the box, you'll find a web address / QR code, along with a 4-digit password. This takes you to an online questionnaire which covers a wide range of questions, such as where you purchased the console, how you heard about it and what other mini-consoles you currently own (thanks, gosokkyu).

The most interesting question relates to future mini-consoles from Sega. Asking "which classic Sega hardware replica would you like to see next?", Sega gives you the following options:

  • SC-3000
  • SG-1000/1000 II
  • Mark III/Master System
  • Saturn
  • Dreamcast
  • MD Mini 3
  • Game Gear Micro pt.2
  • non-Micro Game Gear
  • arcade (a la Astro City Mini)
  • other (specify)
  • not particularly interested

Interestingly, another question asks "if a remake or sequel to a classic Sega IP were to be released, would you buy it?", while other questions ask what you'd want from a 'revival' series.

Sega has already released the Mega Drive Mini, Mega Drive Mini 2, Game Gear Micro, Astro City Mini and Astro City Mini V as part of its 'mini console' series.
