The Game Gear served as Sega's first and most successful foray into the handheld gaming market. Launched in the spring of 1991 in North America, the Game Gear benefitted from capitalizing on a variety of popular franchises first established on it's home counterpart, the Sega Genesis. The Game Gear utilized cartridge media, and add-ons such as a TV tuner and extended battery pack were offered during it's lifespan.
