Brawl on the go with the Super Pocket handheld – Destructoid – paynews

Launching with two editions: Capcom and Taito

The creators of the popular arcade handheld Evercade have announced their newest device, the Super Pocket. The handheld can fit in your pocket and will feature officially licensed arcade games built-in.

Furthermore, the devices boast compatibility with Evercade cartridges. There are two separate Super Pocket devices coming to retailers, each pre-loaded with their catalog of games.

The second device comes loaded with 17 games from the Japanese arcade giant TAITO. The games on this handheld are:

  • Bubble Bobble
  • Cadash
  • Chack’n Pop
  • Don Doko Don
  • Elevator Action
  • Football Champ
  • Growl
  • Kiki Kaikai
  • Legend of Kage
  • Liquid Kids

A few more cool features

The Super Pocket boasts an easy-to-use UI that lets you easily save or load games and toggle screen options. Furthermore, those who aren’t up for an old-shcool challenge can active an Easy Mode to lower the difficulty of the included games.

The device is small enough to fit in your pocket and has four face buttons, a start and select button, a menu button, and a new circular D-Pad. It can be charged via USB-C, and it features a 3.5mm headphone jack.

I have to admit, these seem like a pretty great value. We’ll have to see if the handhelds offer impressive quality and durability for the price.

Both the Super Pocket Capcom Edition and Super Pocket TAITO Edition are releasing in November 2023 for $59, €59, or £49. They will be available on Amazon and Funstock globally, at Best Buy and Video Games Plus in North America, and at Game and Argos in the UK.
