Posted by Drew Steimel - DKOldies.com on Apr. 16th, 2014

The Retron and FC2 replica systems are great consoles that allow you an easy entry point into retro gaming, at an affordable cost. It is important to note that there are some game titles that will not work properly and we've listed them below. If you are interested in playing any of these particular titles, you will want to purchase an original NES system

The following NES games are not compatible with Retron and FC2 systems:

  • Bandit Kings of Ancient China
  • Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse
  • Cheetahmen II
  • Challenge of the Dragon
  • Crystal Mines
  • Dirty Harry
  • Gauntlet
  • Gemfire
  • Jordan vs Bird: One on One
  • Laser Invasion
  • L'Empereur
  • Mad Max
  • Nobunaga's Ambition II
  • Paperboy
  • Pipe Dream
  • Rad Racer II
  • Romance of the Three Kingdoms II
  • The Krion Conquest
  • Uncharted Waters
  • WWF King of the Ring
  • WWF WrestleMania Challenge

The following SNES games are not compatible with Retron and FC2 systems:

  • The Incredible Crash Dummies
  • Batter UP
  • E.V.O.: Search for Eden - Cannot save or delete save files. (Disputed.)
  • Street Fighter 2 Alpha - The S-DD1 chip does not function.
  • Star Ocean - Another S-DD1 dependent title.
  • Kirby Super Star - Due to Nintendo SA-1 Coprocessor built into the Cartridge
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - Another Nintendo SA-1 dependent title. (Disputed)
  • Super Bomberman 2 - The game starts up but the control pad does not function.
  • Super Scope 6 - Gun will work but you cannot use the controller
  • Terminator: Arcade, Metal Combat - cannot play 2 player mode
  • Games marked as (Disputed) have been found to work some of the time.
  • At times, different copies of the same game can behave differently in the Retron 3.This can be explained by a game title having multiple different cartridge chip types. Some copies of Dragon Warrior or Super Mario Bros. 2, for example, will not work in a new retro system; while different copies of that same title will operate with no issues in that same machine. In other cases, the system simply does not function with certain expansion chips, such as those in Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse.

*The FC Twin has Super Nintendo Controller Ports and you can use original SNES accessories, and you can not use NES accessories.
