The Analogue Pocket will let you play Game Boy games in HD

by October 17, 2019 0 comments

A few companies these days have been trying to revive vintage games. Among them, Analogue is one of the leading companies, which has built modern consoles in which you can insert your old cartridges. The modern processors in these consoles allow the players to play the games in HD. Now Analogue is taking this experience to the handheld and portable vintage games with the Analogue Pocket. 

The Analogue Pocket will be able to run all the games from the Game Boy library including Game Boy, Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Color, that too natively and without emulation. But that isn’t all it will be able to run. It will also run games from Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color, Atari Lynx and more using an adapter and the cartridges of the games. 

But not everything is vintage. The hardware is as modern as it can get. The display is a 3.5-inch, 1600×1440 LCD display that provides a very high-resolution 615 ppi, which is probably one of the best on any dedicated gaming device. The Analogue Pocket achieves this using FPGA. They also have a second dedicated FPGA to enable developers to build and port their own cores. This goes well with the minimalistic design of the device, which complements the modern aesthetic.  

But gaming is not the only thing Analogue Pocket does. It also makes music. It is also synthesizer and a sequencer with a built in DAW called Nanoloop which can also be used for live performances. 

It will also come with a dock, called the Analogue Dock (sold separately) which can be connected to any HDTV. This will enable you to play your games on the big screen with any wireless Bluetooth controller from 8BitDo.
