As the world of gaming continues to evolve and expand, HyperMegaTech has launched the Super Pocket, an (as they put it) revolutionary handheld gaming device set to redefine the experience of retro gaming. Fitting comfortably in your pocket, the Super Pocket enables you to take your arcade gaming experience wherever you go.
The Super Pocket, set for release in October 2023, will be priced at £49, $59, and €59, making it a budget-friendly addition to any gamer's collection. As a testament to the device's affordability, pre-orders will commence on Friday, July 14th.
Officially Licensed from Capcom and TAITO
This innovative handheld is officially licensed by both Capcom and TAITO, the gaming giants renowned for their immersive arcade and console games. This guarantees that the Super Pocket features not only the top-quality arcade games but also a couple of iconic home console titles loved by many.
High-Quality Screen and Games
The Super Pocket boasts a 2.8" bright IPS Screen with a resolution of 320x240, ensuring sharp, vivid arcade sprites no matter where you find yourself gaming.
For the budget-friendly price, the Super Pocket provides an impressive line-up of arcade games. You won't encounter 8-bit arcade ports on this device; instead, you will experience the high-quality arcade games that defined the industry, such as Street Fighter II’: Hyper Fighting, Space Invaders, Final Fight, Bubble Bobble, Ghouls ‘N Ghosts, and Rastan, among others.
The Super Pocket Capcom Edition comes with 12 games, and the TAITO Edition is loaded with 17 games, providing a broad spectrum of licensed arcade games not found on other retro gaming devices at this price.
User-Friendly Interface and Controls
Featuring an intuitive user interface and simple controls, the Super Pocket offers a comfortable and engaging gaming experience. Equipped with a USB-C Charging port and a 3.5m headphone jack, gamers can enjoy their favorite games on the train, in the park, or during breaks at work.
The Super Pocket also introduces an 'Easy Mode', reducing the difficulty level of the games, making it perfect for all age groups without encountering frustrating difficulty spikes.
Compatibility with Evercade Cartridges
This is the biggest selling point for me. In a strategic collaboration, the Super Pocket is also compatible with Evercade Cartridges from HyperMegaTech's sister brand, Evercade. This compatibility provides access to over 500 games by the end of 2023 on Evercade Cartridges. Each cartridge is priced at £17.99 | $19.99 | €19.99, making the Super Pocket a gift that continues to offer more to its users.
The Capcom Edition of Super Pocket features 12 games from the legendary publisher, including 11 arcade games such as Street Fighter II’: Hyper Fighting, Final Fight, 1942, and the home console version of the original Mega Man.
The TAITO Edition of the Super Pocket comes with 17 games, including seminal arcade classics like Space Invaders, Elevator Action, Bubble Bobble, The NewZealand Story, Rastan, and the home console game Space Invaders ‘91.
An interesting prospect that I may dive into. The Super Pocket stands out as a unique, budget-friendly handheld device that promises to bring the nostalgia of arcade gaming right into your pocket. Whether you are an avid gamer or a beginner, Super Pocket is the gateway to an exciting world of retro arcade gaming.
