RetroN 5 Delayed by Hyperkin, Will Come Out in 2014

By   /   2 years ago

Hyperkin’s much salivating gaming machine RetroN 5 was supposed to be launched on December 10 but due to some faulty connectors, the console will not make it to under the Christmas trees this year.

RetroN 5 will be released in the first quarter of 2014, according to a post on the company’s official blog.

“We apologize for the inconvenience, said Lawrence Lee, Project Manager at Hyperkin. “Hyperkin would like to thank you for all the support you have given us throughout the development of the RetroN 5. We are looking forward to its release, estimated to be within the first quarter of 2014, as soon as the issue has been resolved.

Had it not been for the faulty pins found in some of the packaged units that were nearly ready to be shipped, we would have received the device in a period of 10 days – albeit faulty.

What sets RetroN apart from other systems is that it has slots for NES, SNES, GameBoy Advance, Genesis/Mega Drive, and Famicom cartridges, both NTSC and PAL. This means that there will be a lot of options for you to choose between.

Other than this, the device comes with its own Bluetooth based controller as well as support for original peripherals for NES, SNES and Genesis.

RetroN 5 was revealed at Midwest Gaming Classic trade show in March this year.
