    During CES 2024, Hyperkin announced the Mega 95, a hybrid console that has a portable and TV mode. The console can play both Mega Drive and Sega Genesis games. According to The Verge, the console is equipped with a five-inch display that has a toggle to switch between 4:3 and 16:9 modes, and a battery that Hyperkin says should last 10 hours per charge.

    Also included in the box is a USB-C dock that allows owners to play games on their TV. The dock features two ports for external controllers. At the time of writing, the specs, release date, and pricing of the Mega 95 is currently unknown. However, Hyperkin will likely reveal more details about the console in the coming weeks and months.

    Hyperkin has previously made a retro device that supports Sega Genesis and Mega Drive cartridges. One major example is the MegaRetroN HD. The MegaRetroN HD costs $59.99. Additionally, Hyperkin has also made a portable console that supports SNES games. That console costs $119.99. It is likely that the Mega 95 will land somewhere between the two consoles.

    CES is an annual event that focuses on electronics, hardware, and more from select companies. Recently, Sony held an event that featured a first look at a new Patapon game and a Gravity Rush movie. The company will likely reveal more about both in the coming months.

    Lastly, Hyperkin will likely confirm more details about the Mega 95 in the near future.
