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?
