mClassic Graphics Upscaler For Retro Gaming And Switch Is Back On Sale At Amazon

The mClassic is a very cool accessory for Nintendo Switch and retro gamers.


Nintendo Switch and retro gamers can pick up the mClassic graphics upscaler for $80 at Amazon. This deal had disappeared after Cyber Monday but has returned once again. Normally $100, the mClassic is one of the coolest and most practical gaming accessories around. This plug-and-play dongle upscales the resolution of your games. This is extremely useful for older consoles that generally look pretty abysmal displayed on modern TVs. It also offers a slight visual upgrade for Nintendo Switch games.

As mentioned, it's also a wonderful accessory for retro gaming on modern TVs. So if you want to play consoles like the GameCube, Super Nintendo, or N64 without a CRT TV, the mClassic is a great option. Retro consoles without HDMI ports can utilize the mClassic by picking up an HDMI adapter (such as this one for classic Nintendo consoles).

While we've found the mClassic to work great for the Switch and retro Nintendo consoles, your mileage may vary based on which console and TV you're using. That said, regardless of which console you play on, the mClassic will certain help display crisper textures and a clearer picture for retro games, making them highly playable on modern TVs.
