This is not a drill people, our dreams have come true – GoRetroid is officially making a metallic Retroid Pocket 3+.
If you know anything about Retro Dodo or me specifically, then you know that we are entirely obsessed with metal shell handhelds.
Specifically, we are well known for asking for them from our favorite handheld makers. Even going as far as to demand it a couple of times.
I shamelessly ran a campaign for a metal shell Anbernic RG351v for over a year before giving up on that dream of mine.
Check out my post about that here:
We were so close to getting an awesome metal shell vertical with the , but that console turned out to be quite a bummer.
So if we can’t get a metal shell vertical handheld anytime soon, the next best thing would be to get it on one of the most popular handhelds of 2022: The .
We have always ranked the RP3+ quite high, even giving it a pretty decent spot on our best of 2022 list.
So if you gave us a wish list of consoles to choose from to get a metal shell, that would certainly be on the list.
Well, we can now cross the Retroid Pocket 3+ off our metal shell wishlist. Dreams really do come true!
Retroid Pocket 3+ Metallic Edition
GoRetroid dropped the big surprise on us today on their Youtube channel with their official announcement of the Retroid Pocket 3+ Metallic Edition.
In GoRetroid’s own words: “This special edition of the RP3+ will feature a metal shell, and Hall effect analogue sticks.”
So not only the metal shell, also those drift-proof Hall joysticks that are in style.
