Cyber Gadget, a Japanese company that designs video game console paraphernalia, has recently announced a new retro game system called Retrofreak. The details translate as follows:

Retrofreak will allow you to play video game software from no less than 11 different types of cartridges via an adapter that is compatible with retro games, all with a single machine. Note: games may not play properly in some cases. The 11 types of cartridges include:

  • Family Computer
  • Super Famicom
  • Super Nintendo Entertainment System (NTSC/PAL)
  • Game Boy
  • Game Boy Colour
  • Game Boy Advance
  • Mega Drive (NTSC/PAL) (Note: the Mega Adapter can be used to play Sega Mark III games)
  • Genesis (Note: The North American Mega Drive)
  • PC Engine
  • TurboGrafx-16 (Note: the overseas version of the PC Engine)
  • PC Engine SuperGrafx

Translator notes: the Family Computer, or Famicom, is the original name for what is known in the west as the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES. The Sega Mark III was released two years prior to the Sega Master System, and the two are almost identical in terms of hardware.

A release date for the Retrofreak has not yet been revealed.
