Hasbro to revive Tiger Electronics with rereleases, including Sonic the Hedgehog 3

I’m reminded of the monkey paw segment of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror when I report the news that we are getting a rerelease of Sonic the Hedgehog 3, but it’s the Tiger Electronics version. That’s right, Hasbro is bringing back the sort of playable LCD games with the return of four games, including SEGA’s own Sonic 3. Other titles include The Little Mermaid, Transformers: Generation 2 and X-Men Project X. The games are coming this fall for $14.99 each, and are up for pre-order right now at GameStop.

What Tiger games would YOU like to see revived? What modern games would you like to see turned into a Tiger game?

    For the simple handhelds, Aladdin would probably be my top choice for a release followed by Carmen Sandiego. Those two handhelds I remember being replaying the most.

    Though, if the rerelease the more interactive units than the Sonic Underground handheld would be my top choice. That one actually had you flicking a switch as you played. This switch would send a marble through a plastic tube that encircled the handheld. The faster you made the marble move through the tube the faster Sonic moved.

    My second choice for the more interactive ones would be the Pokemon Poke Ball Electronic Ball Game. This one had a built-in gyroscope that you used the tilt the device which impacted all the battles you would undertake. And the battles had you going aginst Team Rocket and the entire Kanto gym league. This one would be neat to see rereleased as gyroscope technology has come a long way since then. So, hopefully it would be more responsive as I remember this game being hard to control as the gyroscope would not always recognize your movements. When it worked, it was really fun. When it didn’t work it was really frustrating. Look up some videos on this one in action, it was really creative and unique for its time.

    I had Sonic 3 as a kid, and play it to death. Then I got a Genesis and never played a Tiger handheld again. If these were less than $10 (more like $5) they’d get way more sales, but I’m guessing their target demo here outside those of us that HAVE TO HAVE IT for nostalgia, is parents that have kids too young for a proper game system but don’t want them handling their phones.
