Recently we wrote about the pending arrival of the Ninetendo’s NES Classic Edition system bringing back a slew of their old retro video games. Now we have news of a rival system that looks to bring back MORE retro video games.
Since 2007, Retro-Bit® has been at the forefront of the retro gaming world, introducing innovative and exciting platforms to re-experience a classic gaming era. Continuing with that tradition, Retro-Bit aims to bring all the great aspects of old school gaming to the modern gamer, specializing in manufacturing third party accessories for all of your favorite Retro gaming consoles. With systems and hardware to support the NES®, SNES®, and Genesis® entertainment system, Retro-bit brings the classics to real time.
This past June, Innex Inc®., an exclusive distributor of Retro-Bit® unveiled the brand’s newest product at the 2016 E3 Expo – Retro-Bit Generations, a plug and play console loaded with more than 100 classic retro games estimated to be available in the Fall of 2016 for $59.99*.
Unlike the previous Retro-Bit consoles, which ran and read gaming cartridges, Retro-Bit collaborated with world-renowned gaming developers like Capcom, Data EastTM, Jaleco LTD., IREM and more to provide a full-fledged roster of titles easily recognized and admired by the retro-gaming community such as, Ghosts’N Goblins™, Gun.Smoke™, Kid Niki Radical Ninja, Kung-Fu, Captain Commando™, Kickle Cubicle, Rival Turf, Super R-Type, The Super Bases Loaded Series, Knights of the Round, Brawl Brothers, Ring King and more!
Along with a catalog of popular gaming titles, the Retro-Bit Generations is accompanied with two USB retro-style six button controllers and designed with a sleek user-friendly interface and AV and HDMI ports. The console also includes an SD card slot allowing users to save or transfer archived game progress to other consoles.
“Retro-Bit has been known to make products for the hardcore retro gaming crowd, and we are thrilled that Retro-Bit created a product that is aimed at a wider audience. We believe that the Retro-Bit Generations is a fantastic introduction for beginners into the world of retro gaming, however, it includes a lot of titles that resonate with experienced gamers.” Said Ron Pang, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Innex Inc.
With the success of Retro-Bit’s previous consoles (Super Retro-Trio® and the Retro-Duo®), which operates on gaming cartridges, the Retro-Bit Generations opens retro gaming to new patrons of all ages. Retro-Bit continues to make great strides to bridge the gap of between gamers past and present.
Retro-Bit Generations is expected to hit stores in September or November for $59.99.
