To commemorate Sega’s sixtieth anniversary, it has created a miniaturized version of its classic Game Gear console from 1990 titled “Game Gear Micro.”

The "Game Gear Micro" is a hyper-reduced version of the original 8-bit fourth-generation device, with a width that is no bigger than Nintendo's "Game Boy Micro."

The new console’s appearance resembles the original, with simple radial and duo-button controls, adjacent to a small backlit screen that displays 32 colors at a time, and a single mono speaker.

There are four color variants, including black, blue, yellow, and red, which come with four different preloaded games.

Since the Micro’s screen is so tiny, Sega is offering a free miniature version of the classic Big Window magnifying glass accessory for those who purchase all four color versions of the console.

Sega’s Game Gear Micro is set to launch at select Japanese retailers in October this year and is priced at approximately $45 USD.

Additional information about the new device can be found on SEGA’s website.
