Hyperkin was expected to unveil a machine dubbed the RetroN 4 at the retro games convention, but altered the machine when a fifth cartridge slot was added in the latter stages of its development.

RetroN, which also supports Famicom and Game Boy Advance software, enables users to run old Nintendo and Sega titles from their original cartridges, and play them using the original controllers.

The console hooks up to a television screen via HDMI and will upscale games to 720p. It will come with its own bluetooth wireless controllers, capable of syncing at up to 15 feet.

Hyperkin is yet to announce a release date for the RetroN 5, but it will reportedly cost around $100 (£65).
