Can it do better than its predecessor?
Retro-Bit has been highlighting a number of products at CES 2017 that we've been covering throughout the day. The final part to cover is the Retro-Bit Generations Portable, which is expected in July for $69.99. If the name sounds familiar, that's because this is a handheld iteration of the Retro-Bit...
A ten foot cable on the cheaper option
If the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition (Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe) has a big flaw, aside from being out of stock in many places, it's those darn controller cables. Some put forward theories for why the cables are so short, but in reality it's possibly just...
"A unique piece of furniture"
You'll have seen 'Retro-Bit' in quite a few of our headlines today, and we're not done yet.

HDMI or bust
Retro-Bit is updating its Super Retro Trio console with HDMI output, it has been confirmed.

Three pronged thriller?

Over 100 titles, HDMI support, SD card slot and 6-button controllers
Ever since the Retron 5 and Retro Freak arrived on the scene clone hardware maker Retro-Bit has fallen a little silent. The company's last major release - the Super Retro Trio - was seen as a rival to Hyperkin's hardware, but lacked HDMI su
Dubbed "Mascot Edition", for obvious legal reasons
The Retro-Bit RetroDuo clone console may have been surpassed by Hyperkin's Retron 5 and the Super Retro Trio, but it's still a neat little system which allows you to play your old Nintendo games without having to have multiple consoles conne
One clone to rule them all?
We've covered quite a few clone consoles here on Nintendo Life over the past few years, and it's clear that these systems have carved out a healthy niche in the market. Retro-Bit and Hyperkin are two of the leading lights in this particular field, with the latter looking to release the eagerly-awaited RetroN 5 at some...
NES, SNES and Mega Drive on the move
