The Most Beautiful NES You’ll Ever See
Ryan Simmons / 2 years ago
Designed from a “single, solid block of 6061 aluminum”, this is perhaps the prettiest Nintendo Entertainment System you’ll see. Inside and out, this NES tribute is a finely crafted retro gaming dream.
The Analogue Nt is different to other console re-imaginings as it is built largely from the original hardware. It includes the original Ricoh 20A3 and Ricoh 2C02 processors included in the original NES and Famicom and is compatible with all original controllers and accessories – including the Zapper and the Famicom Disk Drive.
Of course, if it supports the Disk Drive, it should support Famicom games too – indeed it does. The console is completely region-free and plays both NES and Famicom games. It will also let you play them in HD, as the console features a HDMI output, upscaling games to 720p or 1080p.
You can pre-order the console now for $499.00 with it shipping in February 2015. While that is expensive, it can get even more costly if you want controllers, HD upscaling and different colour casings.
