26 February 2009 @ 8:44Retro Duo Twin NES/SNES Gaming System

I mentioned the Yobo NES Clone not too long ago as a replacement for your ailing NES. If you’re looking to replace both an NES and a SNES, then the Retro Duo Twin NES/SNES Gaming System might be what you need. Reviews of the Retro Duo Twin are mostly good, but with some complaining that the sound quality is not quite as good as the Nintendo-branded consoles.

Product Features
* Game Console Plays Old Nintendo SNES and NES Games
* Two slots allow you to plug in an SNES or NES cartridge
* Switch chooses from NES (8 Bit) or SNES (16 Bit) mode
* Connects to your TV via standard composite video out or s-video out
* Stereo sound (depending on game)
* Comes with two SNES style controllers
* Plug compatible with original SNES controllers
* Plays most Japanese import games
* Main console measures a compact 16cm x 17cm x 4.5cm high

    nice system… Guinness World Records recently declared Super Mario Kart (the game cartridge pictured), is the most influential video game of all time, placing its importance above the Super Mario Bros series, Final Fantasy VII, Grand Theft Auto, Street Fighter 2 and even Pac-Man.

    the stereo sound is only supported on SNES games. All NES games output in mono-only.the controller input pins prevent certain NES games from being playable, mostly the ones involving the Zapper (Duck Hunt, Hogan’s Alley). Also… I know how to “mod” the system to play all Japanese SNES games. :)

    Cool! Thanks for the insight.

    Maybe you could share the “mod” with us.

    Oh, the mod involves removing(breaking) some plastic tabs from the inside of the cartridge slot. I’m not sure if this model even has those, sice the specs say it will play most Japanese import games.

    I’m really digging the color palette, but I believe I came up with a better one than that two days ago.
