Sonic Blast was released for Game Gear in conjunction with Sonic 3D Blast (aka Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island) for Genesis/MD and Saturn. It boasted similarly rendered character sprites and colorful backgrounds. The game was yet another addition to the series, plus Sega had hoped it would be a boost to the dying Game Gear's title selection at the time. Brazilian based TecToy re-released the game for Sega Master System in 1997, a year after the initial release (while many may think this is a pirated title, TecToy is indeed licensed to produce and release games under the Sega name).

Kid's Gear label

Because Sega of Japan officially discontinued support for the Game Gear in 1995, the company released this game under their toy division "Kid's Gear". Because of this the Game Gear got an additional 12 months support. G Sonic is the last title to appear under the Kid's Gear label, and it's also the last official game that was released for the Game Gear in Japan.
