This Limited-Edition Analogue Pocket Glows In The Dark

Analogue Introduces New Limited Edition Analogue Pocket Glow

Analogue has recently unveiled a limited-edition version of their highly acclaimed Analogue Pocket, the retro handheld console that supports Game Boy cartridges. This new version, known as the Analogue Pocket Glow, features a unique glow-in-the-dark shell that sets it apart from the regular edition. By absorbing light from sources like light bulbs, sunlight, or blacklights, the handheld can emit an eerie glow for up to eight hours. While this may be useful during a blackout, having it near your head while trying to sleep might not be ideal.

The Analogue Pocket Glow will be available for pre-order on September 1 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET on Analogue’s official website, with shipping scheduled to begin on September 5. It’s important to note that this limited-edition model is expected to sell out quickly, given the popularity of Analogue’s other gaming consoles upon release.

A Modern Handheld Gaming System with Unmatched Features

If you’re looking for a fresh way to experience your Game Boy library, the Analogue Pocket is undoubtedly one of the best handheld gaming systems available today. It boasts a stunning 3.5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1600×1440, which is ten times higher than the original Game Boy. The console also comes with customizable filters and a compact size reminiscent of Nintendo’s beloved portable gaming devices. Additionally, this FPGA-based handheld supports a growing number of Cores for playing retro games.

In the GameSpot Analogue Pocket review, Steven Petite praised the device, saying “The Analogue Pocket is a stunning tribute to the Game Boy, thanks to its elegant design and brilliant display. It offers the ultimate way to play authentic Game Boy cartridges, reviving decades-old classics and making them feel brand new. For those nostalgic about their favorite childhood Game Boy model, the Pocket allows you to adjust the display to match the original consoles…Just like Analogue’s home consoles, the Pocket shines as a premium device that combines versatility with authenticity.”


If you’re a fan of classic Game Boy games or simply appreciate a high-quality handheld gaming experience, the Analogue Pocket Glow is definitely worth considering. With its unique glow-in-the-dark design and exceptional features, this limited-edition console is expected to be in high demand. Make sure to mark your calendars for the pre-order date to secure one for yourself. Happy gaming!
