Game Gear is here!
Originally we were told SEGA's Game Gear would reach Europe in mid-March, but after a minor delay the portable is coming to the continent this Thursday. The GG games aren't the only Virtual Console goodness as Wii gets a long-awaited 8-bit blaster too.
3DS Virtual Console
Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble (Game Gear, SEGA, £4.50/€5) — Sonic's first Virtual Console appearance on 3DS is this 8-bit exclusive, introducing Nack the Weasel for the first time. It's not a bad little game, as our Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble review explains.
Dragon Crystal (Game Gear, SEGA, £2.70/€3) — A difficult roguelike made more enjoyable by the Virtual Console's save point systems, it might not have aged brilliantly but if you're after a stern challenge it's not bad for £2.70. Our Dragon Crystal review explains.
Mega Man 5 (NES, Capcom, 500pts) — At last, the Blue Bomber returns to Virtual Console with this typically enjoyable side-scrolling blaster. Read through our Mega Man 5 review while you're waiting for Thursday.
Will you be picking up some GG goodness this week?
