Authentic Arcade Experience without the need of quarters

Unlike many products in the retro gaming market, which often include a limited number of games, home console ports, knockoffs or just rom rips, the Super Pocket stands out by delivering the actual arcade games you know and love, fully licensed by their publishers. 
You can relive the thrill of the games that once emptied your pockets with endless coin-ups and conquer the challenges that captivated you in your youth anywhere you go. With its small size : 78mm x 125mm x 25mm and a high quality 2.8” IPS Screen with 320x240 resolution the device is easy to take with you and store as the name suggests in your pocket or bag.  It boasts four face buttons, a start and select button, a menu button, and a specially designed circular D-pad, optimized for the Super Pocket. The device also includes four rear buttons for games that require expanded controls. The whole thing is charged via a USB port so no fumbling with batteries or proprietary cords needed.

The Super Pocket Capcom Edition arrives with a dazzling lineup of 12 amazing games from the legendary publisher. Dive into classics such as Street Fighter II’: Hyper Fighting, Final Fight, 1942, and the home console version of the original Mega Man. All these games come pre-loaded on the Super Pocket, presented in a vibrant Capcom-inspired color scheme that adds an extra touch of retro charm. 

For enthusiasts of TAITO's iconic games, the Super Pocket TAITO Edition is a dream come true.

Intuitive User Interface and Enhanced Features 

 Building on their experience with the Evercade brand it will not be a surprise that the Super Pocket features an easy-to-use User Interface (UI) that allows you to effortlessly select your desired game, save or load your progress, and customize screen ratios and pixel-perfect options on the vibrant IPS display. But the excitement doesn't end there! One remarkable feature of the Super Pocket UI is the ability to activate "Easy Mode." This innovative addition lowers game difficulty, enabling you to conquer challenging levels with ease or providing a more accessible gaming experience for younger players. If you are pure of gamer heart you can ignore this option, but accessibility is such an important thing to include, and we are happy to see it.

Perhaps the best surprise packed with this little device is that in addition to the pre-loaded games, both Super Pocket editions are fully compatible with Evercade Cartridges. As some of you might already know , these cartridges, designed for Blaze Entertainment Evercade systems, feature legally licensed games from multiple publishers. By inserting these cartridges into the Super Pocket's cartridge port, you can expand your gaming library to over 500 titles. The complete range of Cartridges is supported, offering endless possibilities for retro gaming enthusiasts.  With the recent news that almost 90% of games published before 2010 are now largely unavailable it is great to see renewed efforts to bring them back legal and affordable to the public.
