Analogue, already known for its sleek video game consoles compatible with Sega Master System and Super Nintendo, has announced a new, portable product: the Analogue Pocket, basically a luxury clone of the Game Boy. The Pocket is compatible with the Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance cartridges. Optional adaptors will allow you to also connect the Sega Game Gear, Neo Geo, Neo Geo Pocket Color and Atari Lynx cartridges, but only the original ones, meaning it won’t support ROM files. The Pocket was designed around a 3.5-inch, 615ppi, LCD display. With a 1600 x 1440 resolution, it has 10 times the resolution of the original Game Boy. The emulation of the original processor is engineered in FPGA (field-programmable gate array). With the optional dock, you can play your games on your HDTV via HDMI and connect controllers via wired USB or wireless Bluetooth. On top of all that, Pocket comes with Nanoloop, a music-making suite of tools, including a synthesizer and a sequencer. Pocket will launch in 2020 at USD200.

Circuit Breaker, Andrew Webster, “Analogue Pocket is a gorgeous, modern handheld for playing your old Game Boy games.”
