Ahead of a full reveal later this month, Hyperkin has begun talking about its latest system, the RetroN 4. This bad boy has slots for NES, Super Nintendo, Genesis, and Game Boy Advance cartridges, as well as six controller ports (two for each console) and HDMI output.
Both NTSC and PAL games are supported, in addition to Bluetooth; the RetroN 4 is said to have a redesigned wireless controller. Finally, there's a "digital user interface which opens a wide variety of modern gaming features such as selecting systems, button reassignment and other features" that will be announced on March 23 at the Midwest Gaming Classic.
I've yet to come across any images of the console, but based on its predecessor, I'm not expecting it to look pretty. That's okay, though -- assuming it all works, and most games are compatible and run well, I'll take functionality over form.
