Hyperkin has set December 10, 2013 as the official release date for the RetroN 5
“The RetroN 5 plays NES, SNES, Genesis and GBA cartridges all in one convenient console. The US and European consoles will be released at the same time with the price points of $99.99 in the US and €89.99 in the European territories.
Hyperkin explains the delay in release was due to several key modifications made to the console shown at E3. The shell design was changed to allow for better ventilation, as well as accommodations to use the Sega Power Base Converter allowing users to play Master System cartridges on the console.”
All versions of the RetroN 5 will come with an AC adapter with four variable head sockets to fit multiple regions with the voltage ranging from 110 to 240 volts. There was a release date rumor of October 31st that was leaked and has been confirmed as a placeholder timeline.
