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.
The RetroN is an amazing system that we over here at Sega-Addicts have written quite a bit about. It’s a console that enables you to play Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis games while still accepting your old controllers. The addition of the VGA cables make it an even sweeter deal, so if you haven’t gotten one yet, you should definitely check them out.
A while back we reported about a new Famiclone console that played NES, SNES, and Genesis games called the RetroN 3. I picked one up and since these bootleg consoles can be a bit of a gamble, I thought I’d let you know how it works.
