Analogue’s Game Boy-Esque Handheld Console Gets A Stunning Transparent Twist
By Nicole Rodrigues, 26 Sep 2023
Analogue, known for its retro gaming innovations, has unveiled the Transparent Analogue Pocket, a translucent version of its popular handheld console. Drawing inspiration from Nintendo’s iconic Game Boy, the original Analogue Pocket gained a devoted following upon its 2020 release with a modern version of the handheld console. After releasing a glow-in-the-dark version, this see-through iteration levels up the gaming experience.
The clear colorways pay homage to the clear Game Boy models of the late ’80s. They will come in various tinted versions, including classic clear and shades like gray, red, blue, orange, green, and purple.
True to the Analogue Pocket’s legacy, it is compatible with Game Boy and Game Boy Advance cartridges, allowing gamers to revisit their favorite titles from yesteryears. Fans can also use original Game Boy accessories with the new gadget.
The Pocket provides 10 hours of gaming on a single charge, built-in speakers, a USB-C charging port, and a 3.5mm audio jack for an immersive gaming experience.
Nevertheless, this amped-up piece of nostalgia is accompanied by a slightly higher expense. Priced at US$250, the Transparent Analogue Pocket is a US$30 upgrade from the original, which has already sold out.
The Transparent Analogue Pocket will be available for limited released on Friday, September 29, at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET, available exclusively on Analogue’s website.
