One version would be branded as Capcom with the inclusion of 12 built-in games, while the other would include seventeen games from Taito. In addition to the built-in games, the handheld features a cartridge slot that allows it to play all Evercade cartridges. The initial expected launch window was October 2023 with pre-orders opening immediately upon announcement.[3] The Super Pocket would be the first console by Hyper Mega Tech!, a brand of Blaze Entertainment.[4]


The Super Pocket has overall form factor dimensions of 3 x 0.49 x 0.98 inches (7.8 x 1.25 x 2.5 cm) at a weight of approximately eight grams, with a similar design to the original Game Boy. It includes a 3.5in headphone jack and a USB-C charging port.
