The Retron 5 is a “clone console” that can play NES/Famicom, Master System, Genesis/Mega Drive, Super Nintendo/Super Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games via 720p HDMI and using their original controllers. Yeah, this is actually a real thing.
Now that we are all grown up and can afford these fancy toys, shouldn’t our retro systems grow up too? With the RetroN 5, you will now be able to play all of your favorite games from nine different systems on one convenient console in full HD glory.
