My Arcade’s Retro Champ isn’t the only portable NES / Famicom console on the market, but it’s one of the first we’ve seen that accepts real cartridges and has a built-in 7″ display. You’ll be able to test out cartridges on-the-go (garage sales, etc.) or enjoy the classic couch-side experience by connecting it to an HDTV and pairing it with up to two Super GamePad wireless controllers that are included with the premium bundle. We know how dusty those old games can get, so there’s even a built-in cleaning kit to help keep them in tip top shape. Product page. Read more for a hands-on video and additional information.
Its compact design is more portable than lugging around the original consoles, and when combined with its built-in rechargeable batteries and 7” screen, make it the perfect travel companion for retro enthusiasts. When fully charged, you can expect between 3-5 hours of continuous playtime. Gamers can toggle between two aspect ratios, classic 4:3 and 16:9 widescreen, with the flick of a switch. The retractable game cartridge cleaning kit includes cotton swabs and a vial that users can fill with their cleaning solution of choice. Users can sync two Super GamePad wireless controllers for co-op or solo play.

We wanted retro gamers to enjoy their vintage game titles with friends and allow them to easily connect the console to modern TV sets. To that end, we’ve made the Retro Champ compatible with our Super GamePad wireless controllers for multiplayer gameplay in TV or desktop mode. We feel strongly that this console will resonate with the community, whether you are an avid collector or simply want to play those old cartridges lying around your garage,” said Amir Navid, SVP Product Development and Creative Director at My Arcade.
