My Arcade's Retro Champ plays your NES and Famicom cartridges on it's 7” screen or your TV

My Arcade Retro Champ
It's very big, kind of awkward, and way more fun than it should be!
I've been monitoring the My Arcade website for over a year, waiting to see when this contraption would be released. The Retro Champ is here! I saw this last January and fell in love with it's awkwardly large size, but also it's Famicom compatibility.

I snapped a few quick pictures to post for this article, but they did not come out well. These pics are not an accurate representation of the screen's display. It looks really good on the built-in screen!

With the end of the 3DS and the higher cost of a Switch, I don't see nearly as many people out in the wild with their handhelds these days. I'm dying to chill on a bench at the mall playing some Paper Boy or Contra on this beast! It's always fun to see how people react. :)
