We've seen Nintendo NES clones come and go, so much so that the term Famiclone has become an accepted entry in the retro gaming bible. Although these imitations often display low quality characteristics, that's all about to change thanks to Analogue Interactive's newly announced Analogue Nt - an aluminium cased NES for both the videophile and audiophile.
This all new offering of the timeless console is not only set to outperform the Chinese-based Famiclone imports, but also the Nintendo NES itself. The Analogue Nt sports an added RGB output for pixel perfect visuals, two cartridge slots for both Famicom and NES cartridges, along with four player functionality - all features not present on the original console.
Analogue Interactive have said very little in their recent press release regarding the Analogue Nt aside from the aforementioned features other than it's cased within precision fabricated aircraft grade aluminium. Similar to their premium wooden Neo Geo CMVS consoles, expect nothing but the definitive alternative to the Nintendo NES.
More details on the Analogue Nt, along with a release date and price are expected at the end of March.
