What you see here is a handheld retro gaming console called Handheld Game Station Arcade Game Console, also known as Powkiddy A19 Pandora’s Box in China, made by Chinese company Powkiddy.

It is somewhat like a Nintendo knock off, but clearly (and surprisingly) sleeker. It lets you play tons of old school titles from across several old school consoles like Dreamcast, PS1, N64, MAME, Famicon, GameBoy Advance (GBA), GameBoy Color, Sega Mega Drive to newer console like the PSP and more.

It features a 3.5-inch IPS display (640 x 480 pixels), an analog stick, a non-traditional D-pad, and a bunch of buttons. Strangely though, it appears not to sport any shoulder buttons because, it was supposed to emulate games from devices like PSP which games do need the shoulder buttons.

Handheld Game Station Arcade Game Console is powered by MediaTek MT6580 featuring 4x 1.3 GHz ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and ARM Mali GPU.

Handheld Game Station Arcade Game Console is being sold on AliExpress for $89.99. If, for some reason, you are not comfortable in buying from AliExpress, you can find it on Amazon selling for $99.99.
