Game date: The hand-cranked micro-console will go on sale next year

Panic Studio caused a surprise two years ago when it unveiled Playdate, a mini crank console that offers games based entirely on this little accessory (+ two action buttons). With its 2.7-inch monochrome screen, jack, and dynamo crank, the Playdate doesn’t look like much technically, but it makes up for it with a cute design. Despite the pandemic and global containment, Panic has managed to hold the bar: the introduction of the micro-console, which was originally planned for 2020, should now take place in early 2021.

In addition, you need to know more about it.

20,000 copies will be available at launch for $ 149 each, but the studio believes that starting inventory should run out quickly. For the recording, we remind you that a certain DOOM was adapted to the playdate a few months ago (and another medium …). The console crank was then used to operate the chaingun! Adorable.
