Retro-bit announces a few new pieces of hardware | Nintendo Wire

There are many companies around these days that are targeting the retro enthusiast crowd, and Retro-bit is one of the most prominent. With its variety of multi-purpose consoles and handhelds to replica accessories like controllers, adapters and even the N64 Expansion Pak, they have the growing audience covered.

Now the company has announced a few more pieces as distributor Innex shows them off at the on-going CES event in Vegas.

First up is the Super Retro Boy, another all-in one handheld that plays Game Boy, Game Boy Color and GBA games. Perhaps its biggest advantage over the original systems is the inclusion of a back-lit LCD screen, something that didn’t come around till a later revision of the GBA SP. The Super Retro Boy is expected to retail for $79.99 this August, and it will come bundled with a 10-in-1 Game Cartridge featuring games from defunct developer Jaleco, detailed below:

Finally Retro-bit has also received various Capcom licenses and will be producing a variety of retro-themed USB controllers for PC and Mac, emulating the look of NES, SNES and Genesis pads. Each will cost $19.99 and are expected to release this April.

That makes quite a few retro options for classic game fans this year! Let us know if you plan on picking any of them up.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.

    Where can I find replacement pins for the Super Retro Trio? I may have gotten a bad system or something because after only a few uses, the pins appear damaged, broken or missing. Any help would be great.
