SEGA has decided to unveil one of its projects related to its 60th-anniversary celebration. It's not the rumored Dreamcast Mini that some may have been dreaming of, but SEGA is releasing a retro throwback system, in the form of the absolutely tiny Game Gear Micro. The teaser website is scant on details, but more information is to come on June 3rd at 13:00 Japan Standard Time (GMT+9).

[UPDATE]

Pricing details and more information has been given. The Game Gear Micro will cost 4,980 yen, and is planned to release on October 6th in Japan. Multiple colors of the Micro will be sold, each with different games on them. The standard black version will have Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo, OutRun, and Royal Stone. A blue variant will come with Sonic chaos, Gunstar Heroes, Sylvan Tale, and Baku Baku Animal. There is also a yellow one which has Shining Force Gaiden, Shining Force: The Sword of Haiya, Shining Force: Final Conflict, and Nazo Puyo Arle no Roux. Lastly, the red Game Gear Micro will come with Revelations: The Demon Slayer, Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special, Shinobi, and Columns. M2 is in charge of porting the games.

The Micro measures in at 80mm x 43mm x 40mm. It'll also run off AAA batteries, or can be charged through a USB cable. Since it's just so tiny, SEGA will also be selling the "Big Window Micro", a magnifier that clips on and makes the screen size larger.

Seems that most tempers miss out in its purpose as a collectible novelty item. Well, either that, or they just like CAD-tier jokes about lobsters.

And it'll have all sonic games except sonic 3 because they don't want to deal with the headache of michael jackson's estate. Or just the handheld versions, which makes more sense. I wonder if it'll be for 20, 30, or 50 bucks.

I can’t tell if this is a sign of the darkest timeline, or that the world is about to get better.

If only. I'm just trying to get out of debt so I can sit the rest of this shitty year out. Politics stay the fuck out of my private life hopefully afterwards!

I'd bet that console is gonna cost a bunch ($50-70?) and half of em will get lost since they're so tiny. I don't even know how you're supposed to see that screen, this was clearly built for novelty rather than for comfortable retro gaming.

hopefully SEGA won't use AT GAMES. Oh wait, most likely too late?


or is this thing too little, too late?
sorry couldn't help myself based off of everyone else's serious demeanor/
