This is the RetroFreak, a brand new multi-system console from Japanese peripheral creators Cyber Gadget, (who you may be aware of for bringing us this entirely necessary accessory for the 3DS). Earlier this year, all eyes were on Hyperkin’s Retron5 multi-system console, which revolutionised the concept of a multi-system console with HDMI output and an on-screen interface.
However, as you can see from the diagram above, CyberGadget are planning to expand on this concept even further, providing support for the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 and the Japan-only PC Engine SuperGrafx, providing a pretty comprehensive library for anyone who doesn’t own loads of retro consoles, or is just looking to save space.
Along with this, the RetroFreak introduces a microSD-based backup-making system, enabling you to save your games onto an SD card for play without the need for a cartridge; handy if you’re overwhelmed by carts for 11 different systems. To top it all off, USB ports allow you to use your PS3/PS4 controllers, and a range of adapters are set to be released by CyberGadget enabling you to use genuine controllers for many of the consoles featured, not to mention the upscaling features to ensure you get a crisp picture even on newer TVs, where older systems tend to suffer visually.
If this sounds enticing to you, then you can head right over to NCSX and place a pre-order now!
