We hand-restore old consoles and upgrade them with modern tech
Pit yourself against 12 laser-blasting speedfreaks across 12 looping, coiling, corkscrewing rollercoaster racetracks. If you've never seen a cyber-cycle take a stinger missile up the tailpipe during a blistering halfpipe you're about to get a rush of adrenaline. Racing to the Nth degree through gravitational extremes. Surfing the knife edge between G-force and burning wreckage! If gravity's a law, then this is a felony.
Extreme-G is a racing video game developed by Probe Entertainment and published by Acclaim Entertainment. It was released for the Nintendo 64 in 1997, and was ported to Japan for release on May 29, 1998. A sequel, Extreme-G 2, was released in 1998.
The gameplay of Extreme-G consists mainly of fast-paced racing through an array of futuristic environments. An array of defensive and offensive weapons are available on-track. These include multi-homing/reverse missiles, magnetic/laser mines, and shield-boosting power-ups. Special weapons can also be found such as invisibility, phosphorus flash and the mighty Wally-Warp which if not avoided, can instantly transport a bike right to the back of the pack.
As with all Extreme-G games, futuristic racing pilots race plasma-powered bikes in an intergalactic Grand Prix at speeds over 750 km/h. The emphasis is on speed and racetrack design, with tracks looping through like roller coasters.
Nintedo 64 game cartridges restored by RetroSix come with all the gold contact pins cleaned and polished to give good first-time loading. The cartridge case is cleaned and brought back to life as best as possible. The cart stickers may have wear and tear or fade, depending on stock. We choose the best condition games we can, but do expect a few wear and tear marks on the games due to their age. Photo is for representation purposes only.
So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business. We are aiming at the small, limited quantity, but hand-build and restored market.
All work, restoration, modifications, improvements and so on are done in the UK, in-house by hand and all attention to detail and care is taken for every order. You can be assured that your order has been inspected not only by a real person but someone who knows about and is excited by gaming and retro, and no sub-par product leaves our doors.
In 2020 we partnered with Handhend Legend in the USA. I believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer. Check them out at https://handheldlegend.com
RetroSix is a small team of people who have been in the gaming industry and retail business since 2013, and sold consoles, controllers and even designed our own controllers and consoles.
Putting that expertise to good use, we decided to start RetroSix; a small team of people passionate about retro gaming, and restoring original consoles to like-new, adding our own twist and style to them and in general bringing a modern twist to retro.
Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
