The Gear-to-Gear Cable, known as the VS Cable (対戦ケーブル) in Japan, is an accessory for the Sega Game Gear. It allows two systems to be linked together and play multi-player games together. It plugs into a special port on top of the system. To use the cable each player must have one cable, two systems, and two copies of the game (like other handhelds at the time).
