Analogue Pocket: mother of all Gameboys announced, slated to arrive in 2020

That is over 2,780 games, and there are cartridge adapters too, so you can play Game Gear games, Neo Geo Pocket Color games, Atari Lynx games, and more. FPGAs are essential highly-customizable circuit boards, and it's these that allow the clever folk at Analogue to essentially recreate the hardware of retro games machines, and run their games natively rather than under emulation.

A microSD slot on the side allows for some expandability (and perhaps, even the option to store game backups, though Analogue stipulates the system isn't created to play ROMs out of the box).

"The 3.5" LCD screen with 615 ppi and 1600×1440 resolution boasts color accuracy to the game being played and a much-needed improvement to brightness. However, the handheld also doubles as a music maker through the use of a built-in app called Nanoloop. There will also be a Cyclone 10 FPGA to allow developers to do their own core development if they wish. Nintendo seems to be virtually the only company that might take this on in a serious way, most of the other manufacturers who dabbled in the handheld market were driven out of it by Nintendo's unstoppable Game Boy juggernaut in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Though we've only renders to go on, the Pocket's svelte design is already turning heads.

The Pocket comes in either a matte black or a crisp white, with a screen that stretches the entire width of the device.

Features for the upcoming handheld include many upgrades from the original Game Boy, including an HD display, USB-C charging, improved battery life, and fully mappable controls.

When it's first released the Analogue Pocket will most productive bustle cartridges for the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance. So you could potentially play all of your old-school Game Boy games on your HDTV. The dock also includes Bluetooth, which will allow you to use supported Bluetooth controllers from 8bitDo. The Dock has no price as of yet, and no release date either, so we can expect some time in-between these two devices.
