RetroN3 NES, SNES And Genesis Compatible Console To Launch At E3



Hyperkin are a videogame peripheral company founded in 2009 that offer add-ons to consoles such as cheaper controllers, memory cards and 18-in-1 DS accessory kits. They also manufacture their own retro consoles. Two of these include a portable Genesis system and the Retro Twin Video Gaming System, which plays NES and Super Nintendo cartridges.


Their latest system, the RetroN3, however, adds Genesis support. It costs about $70, so if you’ve amassed a giant collection of older games and / or don’t own a Wii, you now have a way to play them. The system comes with two wireless controllers, but also has two original controller ports on board for each system it supports. Just keep in mind the system only supports S-video and composite AV inputs.


Hyperkin plan to launch the RetroN3, which they say was developed through feedback and suggestions they received from consumers, officially at E3 this year.
