The Hyperkin RetroN 5 is a magical gadget. It will happily play NES, SNES, Genesis and GBA cartridges – all in one handy console. Even more happily, it’s due to hit both North American and European territories before Christmas, so you can pop this one on your holiday wishlist.
Steven Mar is Executive Director at Hyperkin:
RetroN 5 will be the most amazing classic game console. We thank everyone who has been patient and supportive of Hyperkin during development.
The launch has actually been delayed – Hyperkin showed off the device at this year’s E3, and gamer feedback prompted “several key modifications” to the console. These changes include practical things like better ventilation, but also a tweak to the Sega Power Base Converter so the RetroN 5 will now also play Master System cartridges.
Hyperkin is shipping the RetroN 5 with an international power adapter including four variable head sockets and a voltage range of 110 to 240 volts.
More details will be released closer to the December 10th launch, but for now, stay tuned to Player Attack and Hyperkin.com.
