What is Sega Game Gear

The Game Gear is an 8-bit handheld game console released by Sega on October 6, 1990 in Japan, 1991 in North America and Europe, and Australia in 1992. The Game Gear primarily competed with Nintendo’s Game Boy, the Atari Lynx and NEC’s TurboExpress. The handheld shares much of its hardware with the Master System and is able to play its own titles as well as those of the Master System, the latter being made possible by the use of an adapter. Containing a full-color backlit screen with a landscape format, Sega positioned the Game Gear as a technologically superior handheld to the Game Boy.

Over 300 games were released for the Game Gear, although at the time of the console’s launch, there were only six software titles available. Prices for game cartridges initially ranged from $24.99 to $29.99 each. The casings were molded black plastic with a rounded front to aid in removal. Some titles for the system included Sonic the Hedgehog, The GG Shinobi, Space Harrier, and Land of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, which was considered the best game for the system by GamesRadar. Later titles took advantage of the success of the Genesis, Sega’s 16-bit video game console, with games released from franchises originally released on the Genesis. A large part of the Game Gear’s library consists of Master System ports. Because of the landscape orientation of the Game Gear’s screen and the similarities in hardware between the handheld console and the Master System, it was easy for developers to port Master System games to the Game Gear.
