Meet Analogue Pocket.
A multi-video-game-system portable handheld. A digital audio workstation with a built-in synthesizer and sequencer. A tribute to portable gaming. Out of the box, Pocket is compatible with the 2,780+ Game Boy, Game Boy Color & Game Boy Advance game cartridge library. Pocket works with cartridge adapters for other handheld systems, too. Like Game Gear. Neo Geo Pocket Color. Atari Lynx & more. Completely engineered in *two FPGAs.

No emulation.

Believing is seeing.

Pocket is designed around a first-in-class 3.5”, 615 ppi, LCD. With a 1600x1440 resolution, Pocket has 10x the resolution of an original Game Boy. Yeah. We can hardly believe it, either. Pro level color accuracy, dynamic range, and brightness. The display is even made from Gorilla® Glass. There has never been a display this advanced in a video game system.

Pocket does it all.
Game Gear. Neo Geo Pocket Color. Atari Lynx.

Pocket is the ultimate tribute to portable gaming. We designed cartridge adapters for Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket, & Atari Lynx so you can explore portable gaming history with no compromises.

Analogue isn’t just for games anymore.
It’s for making music.

Pocket has a digital audio workstation built in called Nanoloop. It's a synthesizer and a sequencer. Designed for music creation and live performance. Shape, stretch and morph sounds. Capture music or play and sculpt live.

You can even connect Pocket to your Mac, PC or other hardware with MIDI & Sync cables.

Pocket to MIDI USB-A Cable
Connect Pocket to Mac or PC via USB-A and sync Nanoloop to any MIDI-enabled DAW or software
Pocket to MIDI IN Cable
Connect Pocket to MIDI and run Nanoloop in sync with external MIDI gear like keyboards, synths & more

Sleep & Wake

Press the power button and Pocket will suspend gameplay and enter a low power sleep mode. Press the power button again to wake and pick up where you left off.

Original Display Modes

Transform Pocket's display into the display on an original GB, GBC, or GBA. Quirks and all. Pocket's 615ppi display allows astonishingly accurate recreation of original hardware display characteristics like backlight LCD effects, pixel grid patterns and LCD subpixel patterns.

There is no better way to explore all of handheld gaming history than with Pocket.

Now you can help preserve video game history, too.

Pocket is designed for FPGA development. We added a second dedicated FPGA just for developers to develop & port their own cores. With access to Analogue's proprietary hardware and scalers - we think developers are going to do some amazing things.
