The love of retro games seems to be particularly strong in the Nintendo fanbase. As a result, there are so many different custom systems by different companies, all of which seek to provide a cool, new experience to breathe some fresh life into the games of “ye old times.” A company called My Arcade has developed a new device called the Retro Champ which also falls into this category.
The Retro Champ has the benefit of being able to play both and NES and Famicom titles. Better yet, it rocks a built-in 7″ screen, thus making it rather convenient. It can still be hooked up to another display if you prefer something larger.
If this sounds like something that’s your speed, then a Retro Champ can be had for $79.99. Check it out over on My Arcade’s official website.
