- Sega is releasing four versions of its iconic portable console with four video games on each
- You’ll have to buy all four to play the full16 titles, which include favourites like ‘Sonic’ and ‘Out Run’
Sega has announced it will release a micro version of its iconic portable console from the 90s, and when they say micro, they really mean it. The entire console will literally fit in the palm of your hand and not be much larger than a box of Tic Tacs.
The Game Gear Micro will feature a 2.9 cm screen, a mono speaker, a headphone jack and will charge via micro-USB. It is available for pre-order in Japan right now. The console will ship on October 6 and will cost 4,980 Japanese yen (~HK$355).
4 colours x 4 games
But here’s the kicker: They are actually releasing four colour-coded versions of the Micro, each with four different games. So if you want to play all 16 retro titles, you’ll have to get all four. They are also bundling all four colours with a “Big Window” magnifying accessory if you want to splurge and get them all in one go.
Here are the games that will be on each colour.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Puyo Puyo 2
Baku Baku Animal
Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya
Shining Force Gaiden: Ensei – Jashin no Kuni he
Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict
Nazopuyo Aruru no Ru
Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special
Revelations: The Demon Slayer
The GG Shinobi
Currently, there is no information about whether a Western release is planned on Sega’s Japanese launch page, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for this super portable blast from the past.
