Gamers nostalgic for the golden era of handheld gaming are going to love the latest project to satisfy not only the gaming needs but having something new to add to the collection! Imagine having a device where you can plug in your favorite carts from other systems to play on the go that also serves as a built in digital audio station built in called Nanoloop.
Late last year, retro gaming company Analogue unveiled its latest passion project: a Game Boy tribute with modern-day tech. Named the Pocket, the handheld device is now finally open for pre-orders, with a delivery date scheduled for May 2021.
Pocket is the Nintendo Game Boy’s spiritual successor, designed to both resemble the nostalgic handheld and also run the games we loved and remember. Aside from original Game Boy games, the device can also run Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Game Gear, Atari Lynx, and Neo Geo Pocket games, extending its inventory to cover a whopping 2,780 titles. It features an updated 3.5” LCD screen with an impressive 1600×1440 resolution and is powered by a 4,300mAh lithium-ion battery capable of lasting up to 10 hours per charge. Its buttons are fully mappable, and sound comes from its stereo speakers. Other features include a micro-SD slow, a USB-C charging port, and a 3.5mm audio port. It can even work in tandem with a special Dock, allowing you to connect it straight to your TV.
