Europe in 1992. The story follows bounty hunter Samus

to differentiate it from her standard suit on the Game Boy's

Game Boy 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
