A new handheld is set to release next year in the same vein as the iconic Game Boy handheld. It’s called the Analogue Pocket and it not only looks sleek but it also does way more than 1989 handheld. More within…
Retro products have become a massive industry, over the last few years. With fans wanting to get that nostalgic feeling, companies have produced everything from the NES/SNES Classic Editions to SEGA Genesis Minis and so on. Heck, Nintendo just also released a wireless SNES controller for their Nintendo Switch.
The point is, it’s a great time to be alive if you’re a retro game, and a new device is making it even better. Tech Innovator Analogue and English studio Kenyon Weston designed and produced a new handheld device that introduces the classic Game Boy to the modern era.
They call it the Analogue Pocket and it’s designed to play every classic Game Boy game ever produced, along with Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advanced. Plus, it employs a bevy of new hardware that would make the original Game Boy blush. Hardware like rechargeable batteries, a 3.5-inch LCD screen, and an HDMI dock that’s playable on your television with Bluetooth controllers.
However, don’t call the Analogue Pocket just a new handheld gaming device, because it does way more than that. You can also create music with it, via the Nanoloop App that’s built into the system. That means you can create all the classic Game Boy-era music your nostalgic heart can muster.
The Analogue Pocket will release next year for $199. Visit the Analogue site for more information.
