Remember RetroBlox? It’s got a new name – Polymega

Retroblox makes a glorious return

Some of you might remember when we covered the Retroblox! A brand new modular emulation console that aimed to bring the most polished Retro Gaming experience ever created. The announcement was met with rampant curiosity and praise, as it was clear that the team behind the project would be able to make good on their claims.

So what of that little modular console? News has been a bit silent, with a few FAQs and posts here and there. It’s clear why they’ve been so quiet about things, however, as the Retroblox has now been rebranded as the Polymega. While we prefer the Retroblox as a name, the Polymega looks downright fantastic.

Check out the system interface video they released to get a clear view of just how fantastic it is looking.

The more interesting factoid about the Polymega beyond their new name and controller reveal, is the fact that we can expect to see CD support. A feature that many questioned when they first announced the console. Seems like the powers that be put their heads together and will be delivering that CD feature we all clamoured for.

One of their first CD reveals is the infamous Neo Geo CD, a hallmark classic for many. And as most of us know, a system that does not get a lot of support of multi consoles, or any really. The Polymega will serve as one of the first ways you can play Neo Geo CD games in quite a long time. Given the impressive library that the Neo Geo CD has, it’s a welcome addition and you can find out more about the system by checking out their video on the subject down below.

One of the more frustrating aspects of the Neo Geo CD was the loading times, but Polymega have thought of this as well and you can watch this video that compares the load time for the games back in their heyday, and them running on the Polymega. Needless to say, it’s pretty darn good.

Not much else is know about the Polymega for now, but expect to see some more information from the little console that could very soon!
