The Yobo FC3 Plus is a clone console manufactured by Yobo Gameware which allows the user to play Sega Mega Drive, Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo Entertainment System cartridges. It also claims to be compatible with "G-Factor" cartridges. It was notably the first clone console to contain three cartridge ports and is sold at a recommended retail price of $59.99.

The FC3 Plus is an improvement over Yobo's previous products, the GN Twin (Mega Drive and NES) and FC Twin (NES and Super NES), with higher compatibility rates and the obvious extra cartridge slot. Unlike the newer RetroN 3 console, games can only be played with the shipped six button controllers. It also ships with a light gun, though this will only work with CRT television sets.

Unlike previous attempts, the FC3 plus is compatible with the SNES's Super Game Boy cartridge and Super FX games, and will also run titles such as Super Mario RPG perfectly. The Mega Drive's sound has been improved and the NES section can now run more awkward games such as Paperboy 2.

There is also another version produced by Hamy that lacks the FC3 Plus branding, with a model number of C-11.
