Sunday, July 5th, 2015

The unofficial hybrid retro machine known as the RetroN 5 will get a system expansion thanks to a new adapter that allows it to play Game Gear games.

Hyperkin’s product manager Paul Leung confirmed that work on the Game Gear adapter is already underway and it is due for release by the end of the year. No exact release date or pricing has been revealed at this time.

The system already allows you to play NES, Famicom, SNES, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games out the box. Master System games can also be played with the assistance of a Power Base Converter. While the machine is powered by console emulation instead of the actual guts of the systems it supports, it actually offers some of the best emulation available on these hybrid machines and offers 720p output as well as a save state feature.

How’s this for left-field? The recently announced RetroN 4 console is a hybrid console that allows you to play NES, SNES, Mega Drive and Gameboy Advance cartridges on one system. The console is also equipped with a HDMI output and supports both NTSC and PAL cartridges.

The console’s developer Hyperkin is expected to make a full announcement on March 23rd at the Midwest Gaming Classic trade show in Wisconsin.

The developer’s previous console (the RetroN 3) is pictured above and already available. This console allows you to play NES, SNES and Mega Drive cartridges, but only offers S-video or composite video output.
