In celebration of its 60th anniversary, Sega launches its tiniest retro console yet: the Game Gear Micro. The company didn’t just launch one but four variants of the portable console each with four different games pre-loaded.

Stocked in the black variant are Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo 2, Outrun, and Royal Stone.

On the blue micro, there’s Sonic Chaos, Gunstar Heroes, Sylvan Tale, and Baku Baku Animal.

Meanwhile, the yellow console features Shining Force Gaiden: Ensei – Jashin no Kuni he, Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya, Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict, and Nazopuyo Aruru no Ru.

Lastly, the red version comes with Revelations: The Demon Slayer, Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special, The GG Shinobi, and Columns.

The console is tiny at 80mm x 43mm x 20mm dimensions and a 1.15-inch display. For ports, it has a headphone jack and a USB-A port for charging. You can also use two AAA batteries to power the tiny console.

Because the display is small to play games on, Sega is also offering a Big Window magnifying glass.

The Game Gear Micro is available for pre-order in Japan for 4,980 Yen each (around P2,200).
