Retro gaming collectible manufacturer My Arcade has brought out a game-changer for those of us who are still holding onto a mountain of 16-bit cartridges: the Super Retro Champ console. Moreover, they're also debuting a neat new mini-arcade for fighting game fans featuring Street Fighter II: Champion Edition.
Kicking things off, a press release details the Super Retro Champ gaming console. Much like the company's Retro Champ, the Super version combines multiple consoles into one unit. Specifically, it can play cartridges from the following systems, all in the same unit:
- Super Nintendo Entertainment System
- Super Famicom
- SEGA Genesis
- SEGA Mega Drive
Set to debut later in 2020, the Super Retro Champ features a kickstand, two controllers, and five hours of battery life. No need to worry about flipping the switch on your antenna splitter and bugging mom to play on the television!

As if their new retro gaming console wasn't cool enough, My Arcade has also cooked up a neat officially-licensed product: the Street Fighter II: Champion Edition Micro Player.
The Street Fighter II: Champion Edition Micro Player is exactly what it says on the tin: a miniaturized arcade machine featuring Street Fighter II: Champion Edition. Standing at 7" (≈17.78 cm) with a 3.5" (≈8.89 cm) screen, this 1/10th scale replica of the original game's cabinet looks pretty darn cool.
It's not just a showpiece, though — it really does have a working version of Street Fighter II: Champion Edition on it. Even better, you can connect it with another Micro Player cabinet and face off against your friends.
You'll be able to get the Super Retro Champ sometime later this year at the price of $109.99 or your regional equivalent. The Street Fighter II: Champion Edition Micro Player will also be debuting later in the year at a price point of $49.99. If you're at CES this year, you can see these new products in person at South Hall #20906.
