Sega will launch in Japan a mini arcade that will touch the sensitivity and nostalgia of many: it will be like the one that was in the “files”, it will include 36 games and the possibility of save progress so we don’t have to start all over again if we lose.
Strictly speaking, it is a “shrunken” version of the Astro City, a 1993 arcade machine. It will have a micro usb and two USB-A ports to add controls beyond the lever and buttons that will bring.

The value of retroI don’t know: Sega goes through his past
Game Gear Micro. (Sega)
It is not the first announcement that aims to reconstruct the history of the great Japanese company. In early June, Sega surprisingly announced the relaunch of the Game Gear, a portable console that in the 1990s tried to rival the Nintendo Game Boy.
The problem was that they reduced it to a “micro” size so small that the networks were flooded with memes and jokes, but above all with questions.
The Game Gear “Micro”Will arrive in October with a minimum size: It will have a screen of just 1.15 inches and its launch is part of the celebration of the company’s 60th anniversary. The original had a 3.2 screen. It seems to be oriented exclusively towards collecting.
