RetroN 5 — the console that allows you to play NES, SNES, Super Famicom, Genesis, Mega Drive, Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and GBA cartridges on one system — is now available for pre-order.

Priced at $99.99 for an Oct. 31 release, the Hyperkin machine was first announced back in March. It features cartridge slots for each system, two controller ports for each console and a custom Bluetooth controller. It outputs video via HDMI at 720p and allow users to play both NTSC and PAL cartridges.

The Hong Kong manufacturer's previous console, the RetroN 3 — NES, SNES, Super Famicom, Sega Genesis and Mega Drive cartridge compatible — is available from Amazon for $51.43.
