Analogue Interactive Announce RGB Ready Nintendo NES Console Cased In Aluminium

Analogue-Nt-Nintendo-NES-RGB-FamicloneWe'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.

The NES. Often called the most iconic video game system of all time. Today to experience its greatness, options are limited and riddled with compromises. The Analogue Nt sets a precedent. It opens a door to the highest quality way to experience the NES and Famicom. With a library of nearly 2000 titles, the NES and Famicom are home to some of the most significant games ever created. A rich and diverse history is waiting to be explored. We created the Analogue Nt to experience this pivotal part of gaming history with the quality and justice it deserves.

The Analogue Nt is designed around the heart and brain of the original NES. We've completely reengineered the original NES while remaining true to the original hardware. This means you’ll be experiencing the NES with the hardware it was designed to be played with. No emulation.

The Analogue Nt is precision fabricated from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum. Engineered with an uncompromising attitude to quality. There has never been another video game system like it.

Sounds like they took Viletims RGB mod and put it in a nice case, though the twin cartridge slots are a nice touch. I love how Analogue pedal these as ideal for HDTVs when all they do is basically add RGB out :)

Well, ever played something over RGB on an LCD? It's indeed pixel perfect.
I still can't imagine how anyone ever played Saturn Bomberman's 10p mode with any other setup.
I rather wonder if it also has the Famicom's extra capabilities, like supporting Konami's soundchips

If this puppy could play Famicom Disk System disks as well, I would for sure get one. 3-)

It's definitely something I'd like to get, but I hope it's not too expensive. Looking at the other Neo Geo console they sell for $600 has me worried.
