GuliKit reveal SNES styled dock for Steam Deck and other handhelds

By - | Views: 24,693

Still in the market for a dock for your Steam Deck or whatever other handheld you have? At Gamescom, GuliKit revealed a pretty slick looking SNES styled retro dock for you.

It's not on the market yet, so you can't buy one. Although it is due to release sometime soon but they're not saying exactly when or giving a price just yet. The wide compatibility is nice as they say it works across the Steam Deck, ROG Ally, Nintendo Switch and Ayaneo handhelds.

Pictures from GuliKit:

Dock Features:

  • USB-C Out
  • USB-C In
  • 3 x USB 3.0
  • 1 x HDMI out
  • Gigabit Ethernet

Looks pretty slick, and is mighty tempting me even though I have many docks already. But one more couldn't hurt when it looks this cool right? Collecting random tech is not a problem is it? Don't answer that.

It also has a fun cover and space to store some memory cards as well:

You can follow for their news on the GuliKit store.

Cool, however it's the wrong kind of SNES.

What would be amazing is if someone could figure out a dock that could raid the microSD cards so we could get a large storage base! This is pretty cool looking for sure!

Yeah, I'd love to know if they're also planning on offering one based on the design used in Japan and PAL regions.

Feels like a missed opportunity to put a couple of the USB ports on the front where the SNES controller ports would have been.

I imagine a lot of companies doing these docks (there's freaking loads of docks now), are using some sort of pre-made boards for it without much chance for customization like that - which would bump up costs.

Pity, though - with how kind time has been to (for example) the Nintendo 64, I'd imagine a dock resembling that console, with four USB ports on the front, would go down well with a fair few people!

Looks right to me!

I've noticed that the peril of releasing something retro-looking is it can never be retro-looking enough.

Four USB ports in front would be nice even if it had to reroute a USB port in the back for it.
Two back USB ports would be enough perhaps.
As much as I have nostalgia in the SNES I would like to see a Sega Genesis/Sega CD/Saturn styled one some day.

I suspect the price will be a bit high though so can't say I'd impulse buy one but if it's compact enough I could find it useful in travel.
