Sega’s Power Base Converter sports a funky form factor and Hyperkin has done a great job designing the RetroN 5 to ensure that the peripheral fits. No word yet on whether the RetroN 5 will support other classic gaming add-ons like Nintendo’s Famicom Disk System, but we’re sure to hear more on additional compatibility from Hyperkin as a release date grows closer. The company has stated that the RetroN 5 will see release sometime in the first quarter of 2014.
