Hyperkin’s Mega RetroN HD!?


As you may or may not know CES went down recently and Hyperkin got a ton of press on their Ultra Gameboy which we covered. Something that went under the radar was this little guy, Mega RetroN HD confirmed by Hyperkin on Facebook with a unknown release date.

They also confirmed that the Mega RetroN HD will not be emulation but pure hardware baby! So that means the sound should be close to, if not spot on. I assume that also means better compatibility.

Kickstarter: NESmaker


NESmaker is a cool little project I found out about the other day. Basically you get a software that will help you build games on your PC without any knowledge of coding or programming. This was done years ago on the Playstation One with RPG Maker but this NES project seems very cool and appealing. One of the tiers for backing on Kickstarter is getting the software, a rom board, rom flasher, and cart to make your very own playable NES cart for your Nintendo Entertainment system. Let’s say you make a game you can upload the rom online to share. If it gets good feedback you can essentially buy a ton of rom board and blank carts and make your own games to possibly give away to friends. A pretty rad concept and an excellent reason to buy. When I found out about the project they we’re about $20,000 in on their $32,000 at the time of writing this article, they’ve smashed their goal and heading right around $40,000 with 27 days left. This project has my attention and possibly my backing. To support NESmaker Check it out HERE.

Hyperkin’s Ultra Gameboy


CES has been going down all week and one of the head turners was the Ultra Gameboy by Hyperkin. Hyperkin is hoping to resurrect the Gameboy in 2018 with a price tage of 100 dollars or less. While the design looks pretty nice and it boasts some interesting features such as backlight lit black and white screen a 6 hour lithium battery that charges with a USB-C cable, stereo speakers which is odd because Gameboy games only output mono sound but this is apparently for the audiophiles that make chiptunes with their Gameboy. I’m not too impressed by this considering I can buy an SP or DS for 20 bucks any day of the week and those are in color! EIther way an interesting device that has us interested.
