Last Updated on: August 18th, 2021
The Sega Game Gear is a handheld video game console that was released by Sega in 1990. It was designed as a competitor to the Nintendo Game Boy and featured a full-color backlit screen, as well as a number of other features that were not available on the Game Boy.
The Game Gear was powered by 6 AA batteries and featured a library of games that were similar to those available on the Sega Master System console. It also had a TV tuner accessory that allowed it to receive TV signals, and an add-on accessory that allowed it to be connected to a Sega Genesis console and play certain games on the Game Gear’s screen.
Some of the most popular games on the Game Gear included titles like Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, and NBA Jam. However, the Game Gear struggled to compete with the Game Boy, which had a larger library of games and longer battery life.
Despite its relatively short lifespan, the Game Gear is remembered as an important console in the history of handheld gaming and a precursor to modern handheld consoles like the Nintendo Switch.
