Post date:Fri, 10/30/2020 - 08:20
It seems like 2020 is a big year for strange collaborations too. We've already shared the news about Novation teaming up with Aphex Twin for the AFX Station, but now Teenage Engineering has revealed a unique partnership of their own. The Swedish synth company that first launched their Pocket Operators in 2015 is bringing out a new series and this time they will be themed around the popular Mega Man and Street Fighter licenses by Japanese gaming giant, Capcom.
The new Pocket Operators not only has cosmetic changes but also comes loaded with original sounds from the Mega Man and Street Fighter games. The Street Fighter Pocket Operator is based on the PO-33 while the Mega Man Pocket Operator is based on the PO-28. With the Street Fighter Pocket Operator, you get 40 seconds sample memory and a built-in microphone for instant sampling. It also features 16 Street Fighter sound tracks and genuine samples from the arcade game. The Mega Man Pocket Operator is a live synthesizer and sequencer with parameter locks, glide control, and punch-in effects. It also comes with 16 Mega Man sound tracks that are based on the Capcom video game series of the same name.
Both the new Pocket Operators will be selling for a wallet-friendly $89 and is set for release on December 2, 2020.

We would love to see a collaboration with Konami for some Castlevania themed Pocket Operators, so let us know in the comments below what would be an instant purchase for you.
