Not by name perhaps – but this thing sure looks familiar.
The updated landscape version of the LDK is now available to order. Housed inside a similarly chunky looking shell, the LDK Landscape is more of an iteration than an upgrade.
This thing appeared on Tieba today, and from the comments it looks to be a prototype of a new revision LDK Game.
One of the problems with last year’s BittBoy is that many of the systems it can emulate require use of shoulder buttons, which weren’t implemented on the portrait oriented version from last year.
The PocketGo looks to be the same hardware as the BittBoy (AllWinner F1C100S) but re-jigged in to landscape mode to allow for a more versatile layout.
The RetroMini was released back in November 2017 and despite its good looks and authentic 240×160 Game Boy Micro LCD, it never really found its feet. The problem for the most part is that the factory firmware is very poorly implemented making many GBA games painfully slow or plain unplayable.
It’s been a good few years since I did this, and a few people have asked. Below is a table of some of the more obscure handhelds that are currently available. I’m sure this list isn’t exhaustive, indeed I have purposely left out all of the Famiclone style devices and some of the older machines …
I was kindly sent one of these a couple of weeks ago, though I wasn’t asked to review it and I have no retailer or other beneficiary to promote in this post – just so you know!

Nobody panic! The RetroMax is not the successor to the RetroMini after all.
7 months ago a thread on reddit started by the “creator” of the RetroMini promised us a follow up device with improvements in almost every area.
