We remake old console hardware and parts for the new age
Enjoy a power up boost while gaming with a SNES inspired heat change mug! Featuring artwork from a classic fan favourite of the 16-bit era - Super Mario Kart - just add a hot drink to see the image 'load' up in front of your eyes for the perfect piece of retro-cool Super Nintendo memorabilia.
A great gift for gamers and lovers of all things retro, the Super Mario Kart Heat Change Mug features the classic box artwork from the original game - instantly recognisable to fans of one of the most popular games released on the iconic 90s console.
The SNES, (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) was Nintendo's second home console after the original NES (Nintendo Entertainment System), and is one of the best loved and biggest selling consoles in gaming history. A legend in the industry, the SNES was first released in Japan in 1990 and produced some of the most iconic gaming franchises still going today, including Super Mario, Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda, and the classic Metroid series.
The Super Mario Kart Heat Change Mug is an officially licensed Nintendo product.
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Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
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, instead with the aim of perfection. Recreating moulds of original shells, casting them from quality ABS, redesigning hardware such as power supplies, USB-C, audio and more, to upgrade your consoles to the highest quality available. No cheap junk sold for profit.
All restoration work, 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 Hand Held Legend in the USA, and Himitsu Kichi in Japan. 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.
