きのうHyperkin社より発表があり、Retron 5の発売日は12月10日になると告知されました。なお値段は99ドル99セントで、こちらは変更ありません。

なお米Amazonでは先週よりRetron 5の予約販売受付が始まっていましたが、こちらもすでにアクセス不能となっています。現在、hyperkin社ではAmazonと発売日変更に関して交渉しているとのことですので、近々AmazonでもRetron 5の販売に関するページが再登場するものと思われます。

Hyperkin社では発売延期の理由を、いくつかの重要な仕様に変更が生じたためと説明しています。具体的には本体内の通気性の問題が挙げられており、またセガのPower Base Converterへの対応も改めて検討しているとのことです。

Hyperkin to Release RetroN 5 on December 10, 2013

Leading video game peripherals company to release the RetroN 5 during holiday season.

EL MONTE, CA (SEPTEMBER 2013) – Hyperkin has set December 10, 2013 as the official release date for the RetroN 5. The RetroN 5 plays NES, SNES, Genesis and GBA cartridges all in one convenient console. The US release will coincide with the European release, with the MSRP set at $99.99 in the US and €89.99 in the European territories.

Hyperkin explains the delay in release was due to several key modifications made to the console shown at E3. The shell design was changed to allow for better ventilation, as well as accommodations to use the Sega Power Base Converter allowing users to play Master System cartridges on the console.

All versions of the RetroN 5 will come with an AC adapter with four variable head sockets to fit multiple regions with the voltage ranging from 110 to 240 volts.

Hyperkin also confirms that the release date of October 31, 2013 listed on Amazon was a placeholder, and that Amazon has been contacted to correct the release date.

“Retron 5 will be the most amazing classic game console.” said Steven Mar, Hyperkin’s Executive Director. “We thank everyone who has been patient and supportive of Hyperkin during development.”
