Super Retro Trio plays NES, SNES and Genesis games in one hybrid console

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

The maker of the Retro Duo and Retro Duo Portable, two-in-one consoles that play classic NES and Super NES games, will release a three-in-one system this summer, according to an announcement from distributor Innex. The console sports three cartridge slots, supporting NES, SNES and Sega Genesis games.

Dubbed the Super Retro Trio, the console features six controller ports and comes with two game controllers. The $69.99 console supports S-video and AV output. The console will also be compatible with the Super Retro Adapter, a cartridge add-on that supports original Game Boy Advance games and works with an original SNES or "any third-party 16-bit console," according to Innex. The Super Retro Adapter retails for $39.99 .

A bundle, featuring both the Super Retro Trio and Adapter (pictured below) will retail for $89.99.

Retro-bit's multi-console solution will make its debut at this year's E3, which runs June 11 to 13.

The Super Retro Trio's feature set lags behind a competing offering, Hyperkin's RetroN 5. The RetroN 5 promises to support NES, Famicom, SNES, Super Famicom, Genesis, Mega Drive, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color and original Game Boy games. It also lists HDMI output for HDTV connection. The RetroN 5 was announced in March as a replacement for the RetroN 4.
