Hyperkin will unveil the RetroN 4, a console designed to play NES, SNES, Game Boy Advance and Sega Genesis cartridges, March 23 at the Midwest Gaming Classic trade show, according to a press release from the company.

The RetroN 4 will have cartridge slots for each system, two controller ports for each console and include a Bluetooth controller. The console will output video via HDMI and allow users to play both NTSC and PAL cartridges. The RetroN 4's "Perdana" operating system will allow players to select systems, reassign controller buttons and include other features that Hyperkin will announce at the console's public unveiling.

"As this is an ambitious project for Hyperkin, our goal for this system is to combine modern gaming convenience to not only cater to the retro gaming community, but to also introduce a new generation of gamers to the classic games that have shaped the present gaming landscape," said Steven Mar, Hyperkin's executive director.

Hyperkin currently sells the RetroN 3 console (pictured above), which is compatible with NES, SNES, Super Famicom, Sega Genesis and Mega Drive cartridges, includes S-video and composite video output and sells for $51.78 on Amazon.
