He vintage has been installed as one more part of the world of gaming since, it is natural, that as the years go by, many want to relive old emotions around those titles that, in the 90s or 2000s, gave color to his childhood. So in the heat of that nostalgia, countless products have emerged that are capable of not only restoring the luster to your old cartridges, but also improving them. As is the case with the Analog Pocket.
Analog Pocket is a console that was launched for the first time in December 2021 and that lives off selling its units with a dropper, which they are made and sold out almost instantly. The secret of its success is that it is able to reproduce our old Game Boy cartridges (and Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket, Atari Lynx and Turbografx 16 with an adapter) in a completely native way, without emulating anything for which the experience He is incredibly faithful. That, without forgetting its extraordinary screen, which it improves any memory that we have in mind about any video game that we remember.
now glow in the dark
Until now, this Analog Pocket marvel has been sold in two colors: black and white. There was no alternative to having this console with another tone but there is nothing that ingenuity can avoid, and proof of this is this variant that they have invented called Glow in the dark. Basically it is the same device that we can buy in the other shades except for one detail: it glows in the dark.
And no, we are not joking. You only have to go to the manufacturer’s website to see how seriously they have taken this version capable of being seen when we are in the dark: «The casing is made of a high-quality, proprietary photoluminescent plastic containing phosphorescent compounds that absorb and store ambient light. These compounds emit a unique chalky, starry glow in the dark, slowly releasing stored energy in the form of visible light, with 8 hours of glow duration when fully charged with light.”
Price and availability
As with every Analogue Pocket in the world that has been sold thus far, we will have a date from which it is possible to reserve this model, and pray that in a few hours there will be units left. It is true that in recent times the company has made a titanic effort to maintain stock always available in the store digital, but in this case of the Glow in the dark surely they can break it.
The dates of Reservations will begin next Friday, September 1 at 8AM Pacific time (that is, at 5:00 p.m. in Spain) and the shipments will begin to go to the buyers’ homes on Tuesday the 5th at the same time. So in about a week you could boast on your social networks of having bought a machine for which many fans of the vintage they sigh daily.
And why do they do it? Well, why? It is not a device suitable for all pockets or quotes, since the prank will cost you $249.99 for the machine plus shipping and fees. So you can easily go up to 300 euros.
