Today, June 3, is the anniversary of the founding of Ole Sega, which will celebrate its 60th anniversary in2020! Congratulations indeed!
Sega's influence on the video game and entertainment industry is immeasurable, with its many classic video game titles, classic game hardware, toys, and casinos.
Sega has announced the " Game Gear Mikro," a smaller version of the legendary " Game Gear," a handheld video game console released in 1990.
What is the "Game Gear"?
The "Game Gear " was Sega's only handheld game console released in 1990.
Unlike the Game Boy, which was already on the market, the Game Gear had a color LCD and backlight, and could be played in dark places, making it the object of children's dreams at the time. Those who had one were rich families....
The fact that it could also be used as a portable TV by attaching a dedicated external TV tuner also makes it a futuristic machine.
It consumes a lot of electricity and requires 6 AA batteries to run, and even if you use alkaline batteries, it only runs for 3 to 4 hours.
For more detailed specifications, please check the "Sega Hardware Encyclopedia" on the official Sega website!
Game Gear Mikro" beyond the Mini is now on sale!
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Game Gear in 1990, the micro-sized "Game Gear Mic ro" has been announced!
The size of the microscopic body is less than 40% of the original, at 80mm x 43mm x 20mm (W x H x D), which can be said to be the size of the palm of your hand. It is very cute.
Whereas the original required 6 AA batteries, it can be powered by 2 AAA batteries and can also be powered via Micro USB for long hours of play!
In addition to the mono speaker, there is also a headphone jack for stereo output, so you can enjoy sound to the fullest.
The Micro USB 2.0 comes in four colors: black, blue, yellow, and red, and each color will contain four different titles!
The titles that will be included are...
Game Gear Micro Black Included Titles

There is a special offer if you buy all colors at the same time!
For those SEGA fans who have looked at the titles included and realized that they have no choice but to purchase all the colors!
If you purchase the four-color set, you will receive the " Big Window Micro ", which is a micro version of the " Big Window ", an optional unit that used to magnify the Game Gear screen using a lens!
If you're worried about playing on a micro-sized screen, don't worry!
I'm glad to know that my eyesight is not as good as it was when I was a kid!
