Beep! MegaDrive (ビープ!メガドライブ) was a monthly magazine sold within Japan that focused on the Sega Mega Drive. It was the successor to Beep!, a multi-format magazine which had given significant coverage to the Sega Master System at a time when most other Japanese publications focused almost solely on the Famicom.

The magazine continued until 1995 when it was rebranded Sega Saturn Magazine and focused on the Sega Saturn.
