Hyperkin RetroN 5 Console Could Be A Retro Gamer’s Dream System


The world of technology continues to evolve at an impressively fast paced, and the same is equally true when it comes to gaming tech. While we live in a world of life-like visuals, sometimes you just want to kick tter and an enjoy a classic game or two.

There are many ways to go about this. You can download emulators for your computer or mobile device, you can even own and maintain the original classic game hardware. Or you can enjoy those original cartridges on your TV using a modernized game player. That’s where the Hyperkin RetroN 5 gaming console comes in.

This unique system could be perfect if you have a collection of cartridges laying around but the system hardware no longer seems to work like it should. Additionally you could just want to reduce clutter by having one system that can do it all.

The RetroN 5 is capable of playing NES, SNES Genesis, Japanese Nintendo Famicom, Gameboy Gameboy Advance and Gameboy Color cartridges all on the same system. Even cooler, it has HDMI for upscaling to 720p, or an AV port for those with older televisions. The package will also include two modern gaming controllers that use Bluetooth wireless technology.

The positive-side to this device is that you get one system that plays all your older favorites on a modern TV. The downside is that you don’t get the original controller look/feel. Still at a price that is expected to be under $100, this could be perfect for a retro gamer.

No word on when it is coming for sure, though it is supposed to be available sometime after June. What do you think, interested in this one or not?
