To celebrate its 60th anniversary, Sega is releasing four Game Gear Micro retro handhelds in Japan on October 6.

Each handheld comes in its own color and contains four built-in games from the original handheld running via emulation. Each Micro retails for 4.980 yen (approximately $46). A Collection package featuring all four handhelds and other items will also be available for 27,255 yen (~$250).

Sega Game Gear Micro Colors/Games

Black: Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo 2, OutRun, Royal Stone

Yellow: Shining Force Gaiden, Shining Force Gaiden 2, Shining Force Final Conflict, Nazo Puyo: Aruru no Ru

Blue: Sonic & Tails, Gunstar Heroes, Sylvan Tale, Baku Baku Animal

Red: Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible, Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special, The GG Shinobi, Columns

The Micro's screen is only 1.15 inches diagonally, and if that's too small for you, the Big Window magnifier accessory is available if you pre-order all four Micros.

The Game Gear Micro has not been announced for release outside of Japan.
