Retro Gaming Company Analogue to Drop Game Boy-Inspired Console, the Pocket
A modern take on an ’80s classic.
Last year, retro gaming company Analogue unveiled a modern take on Nintendo‘s iconic Game Boy dubbed the Pocket. Described as “a multi-video-game-system portable handheld,” the console will finally be available for pre-order next week.
The Pocket is compatible with more than 2,780 games from the cartridge library of the original Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color, Atari Lynx and more. The design of the upcoming device features an updated 3.5-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1600×1440. Powered by a 4,300mAh lithium-ion battery, the console can last up to 10 hours per charge. Rounding out the Pocket is the micro-SD slow, a USB-C charging port, a 3.5-millimeter audio port and a special Dock, which allows you to connect it to your TV.
The Analogue Port retails for $200 USD and will be available for pre-order on August 3 at 8 a.m. PST (11 a.m. EST) via the company’s website.
