Hyperkin Announces Handheld Console Compatible With Genesis® and Mega Drive Cartridges

January 12, 2024 (Los Angeles, Calif.) Los Angeles-based video game hardware developer, Hyperkin, has

with a display dock that outputs at 720p HD via HD cable that includes two controller inputs so you can
challenge anyone who dares to try.

Features:
• Compatible with Genesis®/Mega Drive cartridges
• 5-inch screen with 4:3/16:9 aspect ratio button
• Type-C dock with TV output (720p HD) and 2 controller inputs
