Hasbro Is Bringing Back Tiger Electronics

Hasbro has decided to bring back a little '90s nostalgia in gaming as they will release a new set of Tiger Electronics handheld LCD video games. There will be four games released in total, each one costing $15 a pop. They are Sonic The Hedgehog 3, Disney's Little Mermaid, Transformers' Generation 2, and Marvel's X-Men: Project X. To be clear, these are not brand new games, they're all old-school games that were once released. I myself owned the X-Men one you see here. Hasbro is simply bringing them back as a new line, which will debut at the New York Toy Fair this weekend. We have info on all four below, which you can already pre-order as they'll be out sometime this summer.
