3DS Game Gear Launch Catalog Gets Official

Hold onto your retro butts, people, because I’m about to lay down some sweet Game Gear nostalgia.

This is the Game Gear launch lineup for the 3DS:

  • Sonic & Tails 2
  • Sonic Drift 2
  • Columns
  • The GG Shinobi
  • Dragon Crystal: Shirani’s Maze

Feels like I’m back in the early 90s, unwrapping that shiny new Game Gear all over again. Except the games aren’t as good as the ones I had then. There’s still time!

    Nothing like buying a state of the art $250 handheld system so I can play this on the go.

    Sonic Drift is a total bore, but I heard Triple Trouble was pretty good somewhere. Anyone play it?

    The Incredible Crash Dummies and Prince of Persia were some of my favorites. I remember having a lot of fun with sonic back in the day as well. The game gear was my one and only foray into Non-Nintendo waters. The color screen did it for me. I do recall horrible memories of being hooked up to the car port and my parents turning the car off and “poof” there it goes.
