If you have fond memories of playing Tetris or Pokémon on a chunky '90s Game Boy, an upcoming console from American tech company Analogue is sure to appeal to your nostalgic side. That's because the Analogue Pocket can play classic Game Boy cartridges, and it makes them look better than ever before.

Given that the Game Boy inspired generations of creatives to make their own games and pixel art, this release is sure to go down a storm with readers of a certain age. After all, an emulator just isn't quite the same as slamming in a cartridge and giving your thumbs a good workout on a portable handheld system.
