SEGA Announces Game Gear Micro
As part of the company’s 60th anniversary, SEGA has announced the Game Gear Micro, a miniature version of its 90s-era handheld system.
These micro consoles will be be available in 4 different colors (black, blue, yellow and red), each with its own set of 4 different games.
Here’s the breakdown of the games:
- Out Run
- Puyo Puyo Tsu
- Royal Stone
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Baku Baku Animal: Sekai Shiikugakari Senshuken
- Gunstar Heroes
- Sonic & Tails
- Sylvan Tale
- Nazo Puyo: Arle no Roux
- Shining Force
- Shining Force II
- Shining Force: Final Conflict
- The G.G. Shinobi
- Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible
- Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special
The Game Gear Micro will launch on 6 October in Japan for ¥4,980 (approximately $45). There is currently no word on a western release. However, considering that many of the games above were never localized into English, the selection will possibly be different if a western release does come to pass.
Those who preorder the full four-color set for ¥29,980 will also get a miniaturized Big Window Micro accessory, modeled after the screen magnifier for the original Game Gear model from the 90s. Can we get an enlarged version of the casing and buttons too?
