The Sega Game Gear is a handheld game console which was Sega's response to Nintendo's
Game Boy. It was the third commercially available color handheld console, after the Atari Lynx and the Turbo Express.

Work began on the console in 1989 under the codename "Project Mercury", as per Sega's policy at the time of codenaming their systems after planets. The system was released in Japan on October 6, 1990, in North America and Europe in 1991, and in Australia in 1992. The launch price was $149.99. [1][2] Sega dropped support for the Game Gear in early 1997.
