“It’s very frustrating for us, too.”

Analogue has announced that its upcoming Analogue Pocket, the legacy console that can play virtually any Game Boy, Game Gear, and other cartridge-based portable software, will be delayed. The handheld was initially set for a May 2021 launch, but May, June, July, and August have all come and gone with no sign of the device. Now, Analogue has revealed that Pocket will begin to ship this December.

Here is the full statement from Analogue:

Pocket pre-orders will be shipping at the latest in December. Unfortunately, due to new Covid restrictions with our assembly partners, their capacity to deliver within our agreed timeframe has been affected. This has created a domino effect of delays beyond our control in what would otherwise be a seamless process.

Pocket will have some hands-on features and reviews coming before it ships. After the holiday season, Pocket and all accessories will be restocked and shipping immediately.

We understand how frustrating this is. It’s very frustrating for us, too. We are excited to get these amazing devices in your hands as soon as possible.

An email is being sent to everyone who pre-ordered Pocket.

Thanks for your understanding and as always, please feel free to email customer support at if you have any questions about your order or would like to cancel for a full refund if you’d prefer not to wait.

COVID-19 has once again led to a delay, something that has become all too common in the video game industry (and in every other facet of life, of course). Analogue has been very open throughout the process of getting Pocket to market, so hopefully everything will work out and the handheld will begin to ship late this year and into 2022. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and update you all as we learn more.
