The Chessmaster, called Sega Chess in Brazil, is a simple chess game for the Sega Game Gear. A Sega Mega Drive version was originally set for a physical release in the second half of 1992[4], and then March 1993[5], before finally being released as a Sega Channel exclusive.

The Chessmaster is part of the Chessmaster series, and, given its age, is likely an adaption of the 1989 game, The Fidelity Chessmaster 2100, the second major entry in the series.
