Sega has now revealed the full details of its announced GameGear microportable console – or, I must say, consoles. It turns out that the four color variants are different systems with four different games pre-loaded, leaving collectors with no doubt buying them all.
Here’s what you get on each one.
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 is preloaded with:
- Revelations: The Demon Slayer
- Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special
- The GG Shinobi
The hardware itself is 80mm x 43mm x 20mm with a 1.15-inch display. There’s a single mono speaker and a headphone jack. It charges over USB but can also run off two AAA batteries.
You may be wondering how you mean to play on a 1.15-inch display, which makes the Gameboy Micro’s 2-inch panel look huge compared to the competition. Well, if you want to drop 27,255 yen (~ 250) on a pack of four consoles, Sega includes a smaller version of the Big Window Magnifying Glass devices.
Remember, this is the same company that released the inactive plastic Sega CD and 32X Advance for Mega Drive Money. What better way to celebrate her 60th birthday?
GameGear micro consoles are individually available for pre-configuration in Japan at 4,980 yen (~ 50) and will ship on October 6. There is no word yet on Western release.
