Nintendo 64 Support Teased For A Future Hyperkin RetroN Console

Company teases an E3 reveal
The Hyperkin RetroN 5 is shaping up to be the most impressive "clone" system ever created; it has support for NES, Famicom, Genesis, Mega Drive, SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance all in one box — but it would appear that Hyperkin is already thinking about how it can improve on this platform.
Speaking to Gamnesia at SXSW, Hyperkin's Chris Gallizzi gave this reply when asked if N64 was planned for an upcoming console:
Yeah, but if you really want an insight I can tell you: check us out at E3, you'll see something there. That is an exclusive, actually; I have not told anyone else, any other media, or any press that. If you really are big about the N64, you will see something at E3.
Could Hyperkin be planning a stand-alone N64 clone system, or will the RetroN 6 feature all of the systems supported by its predecessor, as well as Nintendo's 64-bit system? We'll find out at E3, but in the meantime, it would be nice to get our hands on the RetroN 5 — which still hasn't been released after missing its Christmas 2013 release window.
