Celebrating its 60th Anniversary, Sega is continuing its trend of miniaturized retro consoles with the announcement of Game Gear Micro. This is one of the smallest console measuring just 80 mm wide and 43mm tall.
Sega is making available four color variants of the Game Gear Micro with each color variant loaded with four different preloaded games. This tiny console comes with a 1.15-inch display. There are a single mono speaker and a headphone jack. It charges over USB but can also run off two AAA batteries.
Just like you, we were also surprised how one will play games on a tiny 1.15-inch display. Don’t worry too much though – Sega is also selling a throwback magnifying glass attachment to make the screen easier to see.
Here goes the detail of each color variant:
The black model comes with:
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Puyo Puyo 2
- Out Run
- Royal Stone
The blue variant includes:
- Sonic Chaos
- Gunstar Heroes
- Sylvan Tale
- Baku Baku Animal
The yellow Game Gear Micro has:
- Shining Force Gaiden: Ensei – Jashin no Kuni he
- Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya
- Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict
- Nazopuyo Aruru no Ru
And the red version comes with:
- Revelations: The Demon Slayer
- Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special
- The GG Shinobi
The Game Gear Micro consoles are all available to preorder now in Japan for 4,980 yen (~$50) individually and will ship on October 6th. If you buy all the four consoles together for around 27,255 yen (approx $250), you will get the magnifying glass attachment in the box.
