Nintendo has always been a leader in the retro gaming market, with offerings like the Super NES Classic and the wildly popular NES Classic keeping those classic titles alive and well. Recently, two new retro gaming devices have made their way onto the market: the PocketGo S30 and its bigger brother, the S30 Plus. Unlike other retro gaming options on the market, both of these devices feature a unique design that is essentially an SNES controller with some additional features.
At just 8″ long, 4″ wide, and 2″ high, the PocketGo S30 is one of the smallest game systems on the market. The handheld device fits comfortably in your hand while still being able to fit plenty of games thanks to its internal storage capacity of up to 32GB. This allows gamers to enjoy several different classic game titles with ease.
The device itself also includes two joysticks for directional control as well as four face buttons for action (A, B, X and Y) and two shoulder buttons (L1 and R1). It may not have every button found on an SNES controller but it does have enough for most classic games. As if that wasn’t enough, you can even add a second player by connecting another PocketGo S30 or by connecting one of Nintendo’s official SNES controllers!
Retro Games Collection
The real selling point for this device is its games collection. It runs all SNES-era games including classics like Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past, Street Fighter II Turbo and many more. All these games look great on the PocketGo S30’s 3-inch LCD screen at 480×320 resolution. There are also plenty of third-party emulators available so you can play even more
