Hyperkin Retron 5 | The glory of nine historical consoles in a single box

Whether you’re a gaming fanatic or just nostalgic for those titles that have made it into the history of the most popular consoles, Hyperkin has something for you. Retron 5 aims to be the Messiah of retro gamers, a time machine that can bring the modern TV and connect it back to an era eager to return to the vintage flavor of those video games that could not have been loved more. It is a real console, complete with accessories which brings together in a single system different gaming experiences as they were known twenty years ago. Certain titles which have been talked about are not lost. There are emulators and ROMs exist so someone has painstakingly preserved the old console and cartridges, a gesture more than praiseworthy. Retron 5 brings together all in one in a convenient way with a device connected to our TV.
