Sega Game Gear Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was released on November 17, 1992. At this time in gaming history, Nintendo's Game Boy dominated the handheld market, but Sega's fast, blue mascot carved its own niche in the platform-heavy days of the early '90s. And while no one has truly labeled the Sonic Game Gear games as classics ( Sonic CD is still great), someone out there was willing to track down a brand new copy of a retail store, decades later it should probably be relocated to the used area.
This comes from Polygon, who also thought about someone still having the game in stock and brand new, let alone finding it and buying it. The data comes from Mat Piscatella of the NPD Group, an industry analyst who has the odd details of selling video games in mind.
