With No interruption of Service, Our Digital Downloads Are Back!

We are proud to announce that we were able to come to terms with our Cloud Server provider, and the digital downloads are back! Although there was no interruption for current customers of both individual Raspberry Pi image files and Retro Games Cloud subscribers, we were unable to offer these products on the website any longer. We were told that on March 15th, the account would be closed and all files removed from their servers. Continue Reading With No interruption of Service, Our Digital Downloads Are Back!

Brand New RetroBat Hard Drives Aimed at Japanese Retro Gamers!

Starting today we are offering two new RetroBat Emulation Hard Drives to cater our Japanese fans! We’ve received recently a lot of inquiries from fans from Japan about collections catered to them. Many of them have some level of difficulty with the USA and European localized games, and they want to play their classics in Japanese.

Typically, for example, if we can include a game like Metal Gear Solid for the PlayStation, or a Final Fantasy game, it will often be the US version of the game. We feel that this is unfair to our Japanese-speaking friends, and we decided to create the collections that have all these games in their native language on the versions released in their country!

So, by popular demand, we now have a “RetroBat PlayStation 1 and 2 12TB Complete Collection” that includes absolutely all games released for these platforms in all the 3 major regions and also Korea and India. It’s over 11,000 PS1 and PS2 games for everyone to enjoy! However, if you only want games in English, you can still go after our original PS1 and PS2 5TB drive that has only the USA releases and translated games.

Take a look:

And the most sought-after collection of them all for Japanese speakers only, is our all new “16TB RetroBat Complete Japanese Hard Drive Collection”. It’s all systems released in Japan, with only the titles released in Japan. All these collections are complete, meaning this is the definitive collection for our friends from Japan!

We’ve even customized the theme to have expressions in Japanese to make it even easier for Japanese citizens!

All our previous hard drive collections still stand, so if you only want games that are played in English,

Digital Collections temporarily not being offered – UPDATE: THEY ARE BACK!

Dear Retro Mini Store fans and clients,

We are sadly announcing that we will no longer have the capacity to offer digital purchases on our website for the time being.

If you have made a digital purchase for a Raspberry Pi or Flash card collection, you have until March 15 to download your purchases.

UPDATE: DIGITAL DOWNLOADS ARE BACK! Click here for more information!

Free Digital Collections no longer being offered on Physical Purchases plus some other announcements

Hello Retro fans! We are going through a restructuring process here at Retro Mini Store and the first big action we are taking is removing free access to digital collections when you make a physical purchase. We started to offer this late last year as a stop gap for the Post Office’s shortcomings. We’ve had a number of packages lost, undelivered and returned to us, and many customers would be waiting weeks for their purchases in that mixture of Post Office defunding by the Federal Government due to the elections and pandemic issues with most of it’s aging workforce not being able to work.
