10-in-1 Retro Console Retron 5 Launches Today
Hyperkin’s 10-in-1 console is now available to solve most of your retro gaming needs.
IGN reports that Hyperkin has started shipping its retro game-playing Retron 5 console today. The Retron 5 plays the following cartridges: NES, SNES, Famicom, Super Famicom, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance. Sega Master System games are also playable on the Retron 5 but an additional converter is required.
Even better, the Retron has an HDMI output and features multiple video settings, allowing you to play older games at a max output of 720p. While its included peripheral looks like it could be a Wii U accessory, it is a fully functional Bluetooth controller. The Retron 5 also has controller ports for its various consoles, so if you have a Genesis or SNES controller lying around, you can actually use it. The Retron 5 is available at its website for the price of $140.
