The Analogue Pocket is coming out finally. Buyers interested in the hardware-emulated Nintendo handheld, with its beautiful 3.5 inch 1600×1440 pixel display, built-in Nanoloop music production software, and ability to run Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games natively will be able to preorder the game on the official website starting August 3. The Analogue Pocket itself is $200. The dock, which will support the HDMI out and up to four external controllers, is $100.
The people at Analogue have used the time between the Analogue Pocket’s reveal and the upcoming preorder period to tweak the design somewhat and put some accessories together. The gadget start and select buttons have been displaced from the lower right-hand side to the bottom center. There’s a transparent hard case available, which guards the Analogue Pocket while allowing people to see how gorgeous it is. There are also a series of cartridge adapters that allow Atari Lynx, Neo Geo Pocket Color, and Sega Game Gear games to be played on it.
