SEGA Game Gear Micro Coming Out This Year

The Game Gear was a handheld gaming system back in the day and was released by SEGA to rival the Nintendo’s Game Boy. It had some really awesome games in color and comes with different attachments, but it ultimately failed. I’m sure it didn’t help that it required 6 AA batteries to run and they only run for a max of 5 hours. Well, it still has a cult following though, and to honor SEGA’s 60th anniversary, they’re releasing the Game Gear Micro. Which looks awesome and comes with preloaded awesome games.

Each Game Gear Micro is a different color and features 4 different games:

  • Black:

    • Sonic the Hedgehog

    • Puyo Puyo 2

    • Out Run

    • Royal Stone

  • Blue:

    • Sonic Chaos

    • Gunstar Heroes

    • Sylvan Tale

    • Baku Baku Animal

  • Red:

    • Revelations: The Demon Slayer

    • Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special

    • The GG Shinobi

    • Columns

  • Yellow:

    • Shining Force Gaiden: Ensei – Jashin no Kuni he

    • Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya

    • Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict

    • Nazopuyo Aruru no Ru

Each Game Gear Micro will come with a 1.15-inch display and cost 4,980 yen ($50). Of course, the screen is very small and SEGA’s answer is to offer the 2-inch version of the Big Window accessory if you buy all four models in a bundle that costs 27,255 yen (~$250). I’m not so sure that’s worth that much of money but it does have collectible value and diehard fans will line up to get them all. The Game Gear Micro is set to release in Japan on October 6 there is no date for the rest of the world release date.
