Hyperkin's Retron5 retro video game console.

Hyperkin Marketing Director David Yu exhibits the Retron5 on-camera for News10's Game Guys during E3 2013.

The Retron5, which is the follow-up to its Retron3 retro video game console, accepts NES, Famicom, SNES, Genesis, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and GBA game cartridges.  It then up-converts them to HD and connects to modern televisions via HDMI.

It accepts the original controllers for all of its supported systems, but for those who don't have any of those 20-plus-year-old pieces of gaming hardware, it also comes with its own wireless bluetooth gamepads.

According to Yu, the Retron5 will be released by the end of the Summer.  While an official price point has not yet been established, he says it will cost "less than $100."
