Priced at $199, the Analogue Pocket can run your physical copies of Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games right out of the box. It also comes packed in with a “digital audio workstation” called Nanoloop that enables users to create and hone their own music. If you grab some system-specific adapters, you can add Game Gear, Atari Lynx, and Neo Geo Pocket Color functionality as well. Finally, you can even grab a dock to experience your handheld favorites on the big screen.
