While we were all anticipating the RetroN 4′s reveal at the Midwest Gaming Classic trade show, Hyperkin have thrown a curveball in revealing the RetroN 5 instead. What differentiates it from its unreleased predecessor outside of an additional Famicon slot we can’t be entirely sure, but it follows up on the 4 by including Gameboy Advance in the series of retro gaming hybrid consoles that already featured Genesis, SNES and NES compatibility.
We were big fans of the RetroN 3, so hopefully this will be even better. It’s personally a first day purchase for me on the HDMI alone – all it needs now is Master System and I’d be complete.
Anyone else excited?
Hyperkin, predominantly sellers of third party accessories, have announced their follow up to the hugely popular RetroN 3, a series of hybrid retro consoles. In addition to previously being able to play SNES, NES and Genesis games, the new console now allows the play of GBA too, though one of its most exciting new features is the HDMI output – allowing you to finally have a tidy set-up, at least in my case.
As well as those, it boasts a new operating system inviting you to change the controls and pick platform, with more to be announced. Otherwise it carries a similar design to its predecessor with cartridge slots for each console, two controller ports each and a wireless Bluetooth pad.
