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:
Sonic the Hedgehog
Puyo Puyo 2
Baku Baku Animal
Revelations: The Demon Slayer
Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special
The GG Shinobi
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.
