    If you were around in the 1990's, you might remember those old Tiger Electronics handheld games. At least, the company is hoping you remember them fondly, as they'll be bringing back those nostalgic little devices later this fall. Classic black-and-white games such as Transformers, X-Men, and The Little Mermaid will be available, looking exactly as they did when they originally released, all those years ago. They've even remaking the Sonic 3 version, so while SEGA may pretend the game doesn't exist anymore, Tiger Electronics is here for all your Sonic 3 re-release needs. You'll be able to buy each of these at GameStop, for $14.99.

    I had a few of these growing up but I have always much preferred the Game & Watch games and hope nintendo does the same for them eventually as I still want a complete set without having to search through ebay for new in box ones.

    While I was not old enough/born to remember these brands of these.."games". I remember playing other versions of these pieces of shit in early 2000's. I hate them so much.

    15 dollars is a lot of money.

    Never liked those things. Tried it a long time ago when I was teenager and found that it was the ugly I ever played. It was horrible little thing! What were they thinking ? bring it back ? Ugh!
