Tiger Electronics Is Bringing Back Its LCD Games With Sonic And More
Relive your childhood memories of not having a Genesis.
Defunct for decades since their heyday in the '90s, Tiger Electronics has become a fond-but-distant memories for many. Ahead of this year's Toy Fair event in New York, however, owner Hasbro announced it's bringing back the company's classic LCD video game systems, with a lineup of classic games coming later this year.
Coming this fall for $15 each, the Tiger Electronics LCD Video Games line will consist of four titles: Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Disney's The Little Mermaid, Transformers Generation 2, and Marvel X-Men Project X, all of which are now available for pre-order.
As with the original versions, the games feature screens with pre-drawn backgrounds and elements like heroes and bosses that light up to simulate movement. It's not the most advanced system today, but the colorful shells and charming sound effects have a retro appeal.
"Each game will bring gamers and die-hard retro fans back to the '90s with the design and technology created with the original game unit in mind," Hasbro added in a press release.
All of the games require two AA batteries to play, and they feature multiple stages filled with obstacles and enemies. With the recent release of Sonic the Hedgehog in theaters, the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 game is sure to be popular, and a Little Mermaid live-action remake is currently in the works.
Tiger Electronics produced a ton of LCD games, many of which were simplified versions of console and arcade titles. They included Battletoads, Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest, and Ecco the Dolphin, along with several based on cartoons and movies.
