SEGA Announces Game Gear Micro, Launches in October

It seems that SEGA is coming up with everything in the framework of the celebrations for its 60th anniversary and a few hours before the company started the celebration, which is officially on June 3, the surprises have begun to arrive, this time with a relaunch of the SEGA Game Gear Micro version.

In recent hours, SEGA opened its official site on the occasion of the 60th anniversary and the celebration will begin at 1:00 PM Japan time of June 3, with the disclosure of details of the Game Gear Micro, a console inspired by a portable hardware that the Japanese company designed and launched on the market in 1990 in competition with the Nintendo Game Boy.

So far, the official site reveals nothing more than the image of the console, which fits in the palm of one hand, and apparently will follow the trend of mini collector hardware, which has a library of preloaded classic titles and that they run on an emulation system.

Judging by the image, the Game Gear Micro will respect the design of the original version, including its color combination, although due to its size it has a subtle difference in the size of the pad and buttons.

This is a tiny console with dimensions of 80×43×20mm and with a 1.15-inch display. There is a speaker and a headphone jack. The Sega Game Gear Micro charges via USB, but can also run on two AAA batteries. By the way, if the screen seems small, you can buy a magnifying glass, adapted for the console body.

Game Gear Micro will be available in four colors, with each characterized by its own set of four built-in games. For example, the black console includes Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo 2, Out Run, and Royal Stone, etc.

It was also confirmed that Game Gear Micro will release on October 6 in Japan for 4,980 yen, which converts to approximately $50 USD.
