Analogue’s Pocket Is A Modern HD Love Letter To Retro Handheld Gaming

There are quite a few brands out there that make retro-inspired video game devices for modern players. But few have the pedigree and talent that the folks at Analogue have. And that’s just been further solidified by their first foray into handhelds with the aptly-named Pocket.

Clearly — with its iconic rectangular silhouette, d-pad, and a quartet of buttons — this device was heavily influenced by the Game Boy. But it’s also severely upgraded, including an HD 1600×1440 resolution 3.5″ LCD screen (10x that of the original Game Boy). It can also, out of the box, play 2,780+ Game Boy, Game Boy Color & Game Boy Advance game cartridges and can be modified to play those from Atari Lynx, Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket, and more. It also has a separate mode for audiophiles and musicians that turns it into a sequencer and synthesizer. Best of all, it can be plugged into the new Analogue Dock which allows you to play your device on your full-sized TV screen (complete with an HDMI output) and is compatible with 8bitdo wireless controllers. Available in early 2020, the Analogue Pocket is priced at $199.

Purchase: $199
