While modern gaming is fun, adventurous, and in-depth, sometimes, we want some simple. Retro-gaming consoles have been quite popular over the past few years, and the good folks over at Analogue are making some of the best. Analogue is a company that specializes in retro gaming consoles and peripherals. They return with their latest creation: The Pocket. The company describes the device as “a multi-video-game-system portable handheld.”
The device reimagines the Nintendo Game Boy while offering support for more than 2,780 games across the classic Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance libraries. When paired with the different cartridge adapters, the handheld can also support games from other systems, including Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color, and Atari Lynx. The device features a sleek and minimalistic approach, rocking a 3.5-inch 615-PPI LCD screen with a resolution of 1600×1440. That’s ten times the resolution of the original Game Boy.
The device even doubles as a music maker, thanks to the Nanoloop digital audio workstation. If that wasn’t enough, the company is also launching the Analogue Dock, which connects your Pocket to an HDTV. The Analogue Pocket will retail for $200 USD, and its set to arrive sometime in 2020. There are no details as of yet for the Analogue Dock.
Check out the device in the images below and head over to Analogue to find out more immediately. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the tech sector coming soon.
