Product Description

Description

The Retron Sq is a small, handheld box that’s just as much a delight to look at as it is to hold. Built from a lightweight, transparent plastic, it instantly evokes 90’s nostalgia, harkening back to an era when almost every Nintendo peripheral had a similar look. Fans of the retrowave aesthetic will further appreciate the Hyper Beach colorway, which features transparent teal plastic and magenta accent buttons on the front.

The plug-and-play nature of the Retron Sq is where it really shines. It features a single slot on the top that’s compatible with GameBoy, GameBoy Color, and GameBoy Advance cartridges, and inserting games has a familiar satisfying click. On the front are two large, circular buttons: one for power and one to reset the unit. Below that is a single USB port for the included controller, or for a wireless receiver paired with one of Hyperkin’s bluetooth controllers (sold separately). Unfortunately, it’s only compatible with Hyperkin’s own controllers, which means plugging in a Xbox Core Controller or DualSense or another third-party controller is a no-go.
