According to Gizmodo, the Super Retro Champ will top out at five hours of battery life — which is fine, and possibly enough for a satisfying on-the-go gaming session, although it isn’t quite the length of a cross-country flight. Luckily, the Super Retro Champ will plug into the wall and can be connected to a TV via HDMI, which means two players can compete using the console’s wireless gamepads. Hey nowwwww.
The device will cost you $110 when it appears later this year, but that’s about in line with other handheld versions of classic consoles. Although this one only plays cartridges; there’s no way to add virtual games via ROM files. And plus: it’s basically two consoles in one not-exactly-svelte package.
A handheld console that plays carts from the Genesis and the SNES. Behold, the magic of technology! The future is amazing. And the past is never very far away.
