You do not even need to be a gamer to know about Sega as the famed Japanese game company is one of the most well-known names in the industry and has been around for decades. This time, it is going handheld with the Game Gear Micro.

The Game Gear Micro comes in four different color variations, and interestingly enough, each color comes with its own unique set of games.

Are you excited about the Game Gear's micro-sized return?

As for pricing, Sega is charging $50 for each one. Audio is provided through a mono speaker or headphone jack, and power is provided by two AAA batteries, but you can also use a USB cable (included) with a USB plug (not included) to power the tiny handhelds. It also provides save states for your games, which means you can cheese even the most hard sections of your favorite retro titles.

The Blue model includes Sonic Chaos, Gunstar Heroes, Sylvan Tale and Baku Baku Animal. The yellow edition features Nazo Puyo, Shining Force, Shining Force II, and Shining Force: Final Conflict, while the red edition gets Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible, Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special, G.G. Shinobi, and Columns. The latest mini retro console, isn't just mini, it's micro.

This time around, it's the Game Gear Micro, a miniaturized version of the Game Gear, the portable console released in 1997 in Japan and in 2000 in the west.

Sadly there's no indication that Sega is bringing the hand-cramp inducing console to other territories yet, but if it proves popular in Japan and the demand is there, we could all be squinting at a tiny, barely visible version of Sonic the Hedgehog soon.
