RetroN 5 All-In-One Vintage Gaming Console Delayed Until After The Holidays
However, the good news is that the RetroN 5 exists, and you’ll be able to have one early next year. The primary upgrade from the RetroN 4 to the RetroN 5 concerns the addition of a fifth cartridge slot for Famicom games.
This is in addition to slots for NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, and Game Boy Advance games, as well as the ability to pop in Super Famicom, Mega Drive, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy cartridges. Further, Hyperkin is using a new chipset to eliminate region locks and compatibility issues, and CIC lockout chips and FX chips should no longer a problem.
The RetroN 5 supports the use of up to four wireless controllers at a time (as well as ports for six original wired controllers), and there’s an HDMI port, too.
You are now vindicated for hanging onto those boxes of old video games.
