We all know about the NES Classic Mini, Nintendo’s short-lived, plug-and-play clone of the famous 8-bit home system that revived the fortunes of the video game industry and turned the Japanese company into a global powerhouse.
However, that particular device had serious limitations (outside of its being impossible to find in stores); it only came with 30 games and didn’t have any support for original NES carts or NES controllers.
The Hyperkin Retron HD aims to fix that. It’s an unofficial clone of the NES which not only has a cartridge slot and two ports for pads, but also outputs in 720p via HDMI which is something other cheap clone systems have lacked in recent years.
- HD audio and video (720p)
- High compatibility for NTSC AND PAL cartridges (via bottom case switch)
- 16:9/4:3 aspect ratio switch
- Premium classic-style Cadet NES controller (10 ft. cable)
- 3 ft. HD cable
- 6 ft. Micro USB charge cable with USB AC Adapter
- Also includes AV ports with AV cable
