Sega announces the Game Gear Micro

Sega’s continuing to make the most of the boom in interest for miniature versions of retro consoles that has spiked in the last couple of years, now announcing the Game Gear Micro, a genuinely tiny remake of the Game Gear in honour of Sega’s 60th anniversary.

Each console will cost around $50, although they’ve so far only been announced for sale in Japan, but that pricing needs a bit of caveating. For reasons that we can’t fully fathom, beyond tempting collectors into spending a bit more, each colour that the Game Gear Micro actually contains a different quartet of games from the others:

  • Black: Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo 2, Out Run, Royal Stone
  • Blue: Sonic Chaos, Gunstar Heroes, Sylvan Tale, Baku Baku Animal
  • Yellow: Shining Force Gaiden: Ensei – Jashin no Kuni he, Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya, Shining Force
  • Gaiden: Final Conflict, Nazopuyo Aruru no Ru
  • Red: Revelations: The Demon Slayer, Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special, The GG Shinobi, Columns

Sega is selling a four-pack so that you can buy all them in one go, though, and will also throw in a bonus “Big Window” attachment if you do buy that package – a magnifying glass that’s pleasingly retro even as it acknowledges the challenging size of the screen.

The Game Gear Micro will be available in Japan in October, though, and we’ll be keeping an ear out about a potential European or North American release.
