Analogue Pocket delayed, but there’s good news on the horizon

Last year, Analogue revealed the Pocket, its newest retro console. Like the Super Nt and the Mega Sg, the idea behind the Analogue Pocket is to give players a modern way to play retro games - in this case, handheld games from systems like the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance.
