Analogue’s New “Pocket” Portable Supports Game Boy, Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color, and More

Retro-console revitalizer Analogue has announced its latest product, the fittingly named Analogue Pocket. Coming in 2020, it’s a system designed to satisfy any old-school portable fan, regardless of what handheld they grew up with.

Utilizing cartridge adapters, gamers can play Neo Geo Pocket Color, Atari Lynx, and other libraries on top of the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games that are supported right out of the box. All titles are perfectly scaled to 10x their native resolution (160×144) thanks to a special LCD screen.

The Pocket’s 3.5-inch LTPS LCD screen is the most expensive component in the device “by a long shot” according to Analogue head, Christopher Taber. Claims of “pro level color accuracy, dynamic range, and brightness” tell some of the story, but more critical is the fact that the screen delivers 615 ppi at 1600×1440.
