Friends, this is the Mercedes of retro gaming.

The Analogue NT is a slick system that plays Nintendo Entertainment System and Famicom games (for those who aren’t up in their history, those are the U.S. and Japanese versions of Nintendo’s landmark 8-bit console). The region-free system has four controller ports and supports every accessory for both systems (even the Famicom’s Disk System).

Of course, this high-end machine isn’t cheap. You can preorder one for $500. That’s the same price as a new Xbox One. Buying an HDMI adapter will run you an extra $50. Plus, the Analogue currently has a vague release date of summer 2014.

Still, something about that clean, modern design makes me wish I had the half grand to throw at this hardware. Of course, feel free to preorder one for yourself if this retro masterpiece strikes your fancy.

Nintendo of America is consistently amazed and humbled by the passion and loyalty of our fans. Our hope is that this Page can be a place where that excitement can live, thrive and be shared.... All Nintendo news »
