You will be able to play all your Nintendo Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, and Game Boy Advance titles on a big screen TV.
The tiny console accepts the original cartridges from the handheld systems through a slot on top, and then pushes them out in 720P, courtesy of emulation, to your flat-screen TV. It’s a way to re live the childhood experience.
The RetroN Jr. includes composite video connections on the back for connecting the console to an old-timey CRT TV and also a HDMI Port. External power will be required. It will use USB-C, so you can use the chargers you’re already laying around.
The RetroN Jr. will ship with a matching controller. Hyperkin hasn’t decided if it will be wired or wireless yet. The front of the console will include an old headphone jack, however you can easily plug in a Bluetooth adaptor if you’d like to use your wireless Headphones.
The most exciting feature Hyperkin plans to add, however, is the Game Boy’s original Link Port connector does that mean it will be able to connect via the link cable to another device! However the company wouldn’t say if it will facilitate head-to-head gaming or simply be used for game data transfers like Pokémon transferring Pokémon from red, blue, yellow!
Pricing and availability are unknown at this point, but the RetroN Jr. will hopefully arrive sometime in 2020.
