The original Sega Game Gear was released 30 years ago and turned out to be a failure – it could not compete with the Nintendo GameBoy console. Despite this, in 2020, the company announced a restart of the console in a more compact body that fits in any pocket.
Game Gear Micro does not have a slot for cartridges, so you can only run pre-installed games – the console will be released in four colors, each will have its own set of four games. In the black and blue version, of course, there are games about “Sonic” – this is the main symbol of Sega.

Otherwise, the updated Game Gear is no different from the original model, except for the size of the case. To control there is a standard cross and two buttons, there is a small speaker.
Most likely, Game Gear Micro will be sold only in Japan, the price is 4980 yen, or about 3 thousand rubles at the rate. The start of sales is scheduled for October 6.
This console is primarily intended for Sega fans, collectors, and those who love to be seduced. Chinese manufacturers have long learned how to make portable game consoles with built-in emulator of classic games Sega, Nintendo (“Dandy”) and other companies.
