 Anbernic RG505 Specs Anbernic has teased their next device on YouTube... the Anbernic RG505 (RG-505) and it looks like a classic and recognizable Anbernic aesthetic.  The video shows the device running PS2 level emulation although not optimally.  https://youtu.be/ECqi11cNtvo The device looks to be in the development stage, so there's no word yet on the release window.  Some rumors are pointing towards this device having a RK3588   Unisoc T618 SoC with 4GB RAM.  https://twitter.com/RetroGameCorps/status/1558889920071999488?t=EMBZl8eRgGO3FG3hCb7XbA&s=19 Here's what we know or can assume so far:  Form Factor: Horizontol  OS: Android  Architecture: ARM 16:9 4.95" OLED Touchscreen (Same Size as RG-503) 960x544 Resolution (222.91 PPI) D-Pad: Upper Cross Thumb-sticks: Lower with L3/R3 Face Buttons: 4 Shoulders: 4 Horizontol  Shell: Black (Plastic)

Upcoming Handheld Game Consoles (December 2020/ January 2021)

2020 has been an exciting time for emulation systems and it looks like we'll be headed into 2021 with some momentum to with a few systems still yet to be out before the end of the year. Here's what's likely available soon:  Digidock 2 Gameforce RK3326 DragonBox Pyra GKD Mini FunKey S ESP32 Mini Game Box RG351M (Rumored Dec/January) GPD Win 3 (Pre-Orders start in January).   I'd love to test them all but if I was choosing interest just for myself personally I'm keeping an eye on the Digidock 2 mainly for the DIY factor where you can set it up with your choice of hardware and software.

There's a couple events where text is an issue on the RP2 but nothing game breaking. The game uses a classic JRPG battle system with standard turn based elements but also "hate" mixed in which causes the enemies more rage based on th
