Super Retro Trio Plays SNES, Genesis, NES and GBA Games

The RetroN5 has a challenger
It would seem that 2013 is going to be a big year for new gaming hardware — not only will we see the PlayStation 4 and Next Xbox, but we've got two new retro systems to look forward to as well. Hyperkin's RetroN 5 will be joined by the Retro-Bit Super Retro Trio, which plays SNES, Genesis / Mega Drive, NES and (with an adapter) Game Boy Advance titles.
The system comes with three cartridge slots — SNES, Genesis and NES — as well as six (count 'em) controller ports for use with authentic, original pads. The console also comes with two controllers of its own. However, unlike the RetroN 5 — which boasts HDMI — the Trio is limited to S-Video and composite AV.
The cost? A very reasonable $69.99, but you'll need to lay out an additional $39.99 if you want to play Game Boy Advance games as they require an adapter, which is pictured below. A bundle which includes the Trio and the adapter will be available for $89.99.
Distributor Innex is showing the system at E3 this year, and we're looking to secure some hands-on time as soon as possible.
