1UP RETRO, first and foremost, is about celebrating our love of retro video games. Second to that, we are an up-and-coming e-commerce brand that manufactures and sells best-in-class retro game compilations, accessories and more.
Founder Jeremy Marshall discovered his lifelong passion 30+ years ago when he got his first gaming system – the Atari 2600. No other hobby or interest stuck. It was love at first cartridge. It was about “A Boy and His Console.”
He went on to compete in the Nintendo World Championships in the ’90s and was a semi-finalist (his wife likes to say he choked). He is sought after the world over for his mods, repro carts and console repairs. He is one of the most knowledgeable experts in retro gaming and its history. His personal collection is one of the largest in the U.S. (How many copies of Majora’s Mask can one man own!?) In other words, he knows retro gaming. His son’s friends think he is the coolest dad ever. His greatest dream is not to win the Powerball but to find the Nintendo World Championship cart out in the wild (#NeverGonnaHappen).
We don’t know why it took Jeremy so long to connect his passion with an internet-based business, but here we are, finally. Find us on Facebook and or at 1UpRetro.com. We hope to share our love of gaming with all of you through our latest video game-related products, game play videos, reviews, walkthroughs, and more. Our mission is to curate the best retro products for today’s gamers and deliver them with distinctively awesome customer service. If you’re not happy, we’re not!
So whether you play modern console games, Steam, or PC-based games (and we do), remember where it all started.
