Game Kiddy is back with a new retro gaming handheld console, the GKD Plus, for mobile gamers who prefer nostalgia over modern titles offered by modern handheld consoles like the previously mentioned GPD WIN4.
Billed as the ultimate retro game console with joysticks, the GKD Plus boasts over 25 emulators that open up a catalog of over 2,500 retro games. It further features a dual joysticks design, a 4:3 aspect ratio high-resolution IPS screen, and supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
With BT, you can listen to in-game audio in private, so you won’t bother fellow commuters when you street fighting away on the train or bus. Or when you are home, you can up the immersion by connecting it to speakers.
With Wi-Fi, it lets you pair up with friends and battle over Wi-Fi, so retro gaming is never lonely again.
The device is powered by an RK3566 processor with a 1.8 GHz clock speed and 1 GB RAM, and it is outfitted with a 3,000 mAh battery good for over 8 hours of retro gaming.
All this goodness is packed in an ergonomic, classic Game Boy-style design. You can learn more about the new GKD Plus Handheld Retro Game Console over at Kickstarter where it is being crowdfunded.
If you are down, you may secure a unit for US$139 or more by pledging for a product. But you have to act on it fast because the campaign is down to 8 days. The campaign has met its funding goal and so a pledge for a product is pretty much a pre-order which will be fulfilled sometime in January 2023.
