Retro Freak for North America?

Postby VideoGameCritic » June 8th, 2017, 4:53 pm

I've been keeping an eye on the Retro Freak console for a long time, if only to be able to run Supergrafx games.
On PlayAsia.com they only have the Japanese version. The region-free version seems to be permanently out of stock.

Recently I noticed there's a UK version:

This would probably work for me, but I'd need a special power adapter.

Which begs the question - when is a North American version of this thing coming out??

I just got done reading the tech specs for it (thanks for the link, by the way), and I gotta say that I hope that this will be released in North America sometime soon. This sounds like every retro gamer's dream come true.

Dave, here you go: https://www.amazon.com/Cyber-Gadget-Ret ... B00ZZ70KMG

According to the Q&A, the power adapter that comes with this will work fine here in the USA.

Yeah I know the power adapter will work, but this model only plays Japanese games.
I want the region-free model.
