Hyperkin’s retro gaming machine the RetroN 5 has been delayed to Q1 2014.

Set to launch in December, the company found that some packaged units had faulty pins, and is now delaying the product to correctly resolve the issue.

The RetroN 5 has slots for NES, SNES, GameBoy Advance, Genesis/Mega Drive, and Famicom cartridges, both NTSC and PAL, and features its own Bluetooth controller alongside support for original NES, SNES, and Genesis peripherals.

Another key feature in the retro device is its ability to output through HDMI, which would allow people a relatively easy way to play their old games on modern television sets.

“We apologize for the inconvenience,” said product manager Lawrence Lee. “Hyperkin would like to thank you for all the support you have given us throughout the development of the RetroN 5. We are looking forward to its release, estimated to be within the first quarter of 2014, as soon as the issue has been resolved.”
