Don’t get too cranky
An update is on the way for Panics Playdate, the handheld-with-a-crank that definitely captured our imagination when it was announced.
The Playdate update will be broadcast on June 8 at 09 PT on Playdate’s YouTube channel. In addition to details about the first season and future games, there will also be news about future pre-orders for the cranky console.
Although there will be some surprises in store, Panic says not to worry. Pre-orders do not start immediately after the video ends, and there will be “plenty of warning” before they go live. The team also slipped some details ahead of the show: the final price for Playdate will be $ 179, the internal storage has doubled to 4 GB, and they have doubled the number of Season One games for Playdate to 24, all for free with the purchase of Playdate.
It may seem like news, but back in the original announcement, Playdate had names like that Katamari Damacy‘s Keita Takahashi and the creator of Get over it with Bennett Foddy Bennett Foddy continues to contribute games to the system. If this update is impressive, I might just end up trying to catch one and see what it’s all about.
