Yeah, the unit is surprisingly capable. Not a powerhouse by any means, but 3D is possible and can be judiciously employed for rotating objects. We used something similar for the rotation of the surfboard to make it feel as smooth as the crank.

It's an ESP32 and I assume you develop on your PC and you can upload and test on the device itself.
With commercial consoles you would have to buy a development kit with SDK to create the game, this console comes with an SDK and you can run the created games directly on your handheld.
Correction: next to the ESP32 there is a main CPU: STM32 F746 (180MHz).
