Remember those ancient days gone by when you couldn't save your games? When you just had to start over and over (and over and over...) again?
And depending on the level of difficulty – OMG! How many times did we have to go over the same screens...?! Aaargh!!
Today, of course, we're really spoilt: just make a quick save before the final boss and refresh your life bar too. But oh... how brilliant would it have been if that was possible with classics like Super Mario World
Tada! Check out the Hyperkin RetroN 5
– here to make your old-time gaming dreams come true. This multi-console is kind of 9 x old consoles in one. That means you can use all your old cartridges with it and play the games on a (hopefully) big screen. Epiiiiiic! Choose between black or grey.
These are the lucky systems supported by the Hyperkin RetroN 5:
- NES (Nintendo Entertainment System)
- SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System)
- Famicom (Nintendo Family Computer)
- Super Famicom
- Sega Genesis
- Sega Mega Drive
- Game Boy
- Game Boy Color
- GBA (Game Boy Advance)
- in addition you can connect your Sega Power Base Converter to play Sega Master System games
So, apart from bringing your beloved old games back into your life, what's the best thing about the Hyperkin RetroN 5
That's simple: you can save your game at any point and load where you got to later on! Yay!!
But that's not all: the Hyperkin RetroN 5 can do more. Check it out:
You can customize any game just how you like it – change colour and sound for example.
And if you want the same old screen ratio, like on your old Game Boy, for example? No problem!
The resolution is automatically up-scaled via HDMI up to 720p.
Choose your screen format – 4:3 or 16: 9.
Both PAL and NTSC cartridges can be used.
Built-in cheats! Yay! And they can be used during the game at any time (though there might be some games that don't support this feature). Just refill your life bar, or enhance your equipment. Or take some extra points and skip a level (tho that's not cool anymore!).
The RetroN 5 comes with its own wireless Bluetooth controller with a great retro design. Besides the analogue stick and the six usual buttons on the top, start and select, it has a home button which brings you to the menu, and two shoulder buttons. In addition there're two mappable macro buttons. The controller is charged via the included micro USB cable, pluggable directly into the console. And no need to play alone, nor even do you need to buy any additional controller(s), as there're slots for original controllers: 2 for every platform, makes 6 altogether (2 x NES, 2 x SNES, 2 x Sega). The enhanced controller has a range of up to 9 metres.
If you don't want to game alone with your Hyperkin RetroN 5
anymore, then grab the additional controller
. You can use the old original controller from NES and Co, of course. But this controller, wireless via Bluetooth, is much more comfortable. Not to mention that back in the day we sat right in front of a tiny screen and so the short cables weren't an issue like they are today!
And it's so simple to get started. You just need to do two things: dig up your old cartridges and plug* in the console...
Now it's time to rewind the mind and get on the retro highway for a reunion with Donkey Kong, Sonic or those lesser-known, but still so beloved by some, figures like Psyduck :)
*The plug has different adapters so the Retro N 5 can be used all around the world.
There was an issue with the Hyperkin RetroN 5 deleting old game saves. This problem was solved with one of the last software updates. The newest updates can be found here
, just download them at your computer and transfer them to the console via SD card.
