Analogue's (Unofficial Game Boy) Pocket Delayed

The longer the global shortage of chips continues, the more products it impacts. The latest company to announce a delay is Analogue, which was set to ship its modern take on the Game Boy in May, but not anymore.

In a blog post, Analogue announced that Pocket is now delayed and won’t start shipping until October. The company explains there has been “sudden and severe electrical component shortages as well as logistical issues leading to a domino effect of challenges for nearly everyone in the industry.”

The $199.99 handheld was already in huge demand, with initial pre-order stock selling out very quickly. Anyone who was lucky enough to secure a pre-order will be receiving an email explaining the situation. The option is also available to cancel your order for a full refund, but I doubt anyone will be taking that option.

When it does finally launch, the Pocket promises to play Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance cartridges without emulation, but with a trio of adapters (sold separately) you can also play Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket, and Atari Lynx Games. The included 4,300mAh battery allows for between 6-10 hours of play time, and an optional $99 dock offers access to HDMI output, two USB ports (for wired controllers), Bluetooth, and 2.4GHz wireless connectivity.
