Analogue is the bespoke Neo Geo consoles to a retro gaming giant od the Nintendo’s Classic Mini NES and the following mini console craze, the Seattle-based company has created premium high-definition consoles based on the NES, SNES and Genesis, all of which have been extremely well received. It’s announcing its most ambitious project to date the Analogue Pocket.
The Analogue Pocket has a 3.5-inch 1,600×1,440-pixel LTPS LCD screen (with “10x the resolution” of the original Game Boy), USB-C charging and a lithium-ion battery, a standard headphone jack and stereo speakers. The separately sold dock will connect it to TVs and work with wireless 8bitdo controllers or USB-connected controllers. I want it. I want to play games on it. 2020 can’t come soon enough.
More specifically, it’s a 3.5-inch, 615-PPI LTPS LCD panel running at 1,600 x 1,440, which is handily exactly 10 times the resolution of the original Game Boy. The resolution choice means you can get a pixel-perfect, full-screen rendition of Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Gear games. Atari Lynx titles can also scale perfectly to take up the full height of the display; although the aspect ratio of that console means there will be black space at the sides. For the Game Boy Advance and Neo Geo Pocket Color, there’s no way to neatly multiply the resolution, but Analogue will offer its usual suite of display options across every system, letting you tailor how they look.
