Game Gear Micro is a miniature handheld video game console by Sega. It was conceived after the success of the other miniature consoles by Sega, the Sega Genesis Mini. It was released in Japan on October 6, 2020.

It was sold in five models in four colors with four built-in games each (five in the special edition white version), running on an emulator created by M2, and was designed to resemble the Sega Game Gear portable video game console. Each had a tiny screen as well as a directional pad and two buttons, as well as a start button that resembles the original system. A miniature version of the Big Window accessory was available with the purchase of all four models to make the tiny screen easier to see.

Development

On May 27, 2020, Sega stated that a big announcement would be coming soon. On June 2, 2020, Sega announced that the Game Gear Micro console would be sold in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Sega Game Gear.
