Hmmmm. Metal.

Remember the wooden Neo Geo MVS console we showed you a while back? Well, the company behind that truly elite piece of gaming hardware — Analogue Interactive — is back with something a little more Nintendo-themed: The Analogue Nt.

Essentially a NES in a sleek aluminum casing, this system will run both NES and Famicom cartridges, and unlike modern clone consoles — like the Super Retro Trio — it's based on the original hardware. Expect peerless AV connectivity and the chance to use four controllers without the need for a multi-tap accessory.

More details — as well as the chance to order one of these bespoke beauties — will be coming later this month. We'll be moving heaven and earth to make sure we get our hands on one of these, but in the meantime, be sure to check out the press release below.

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 aluminium. Engineered with an uncompromising attitude to quality. There has never been another video game system like it.

We know there are lots of questions and we can't wait to share all of the details with you. We've got features and details that are going to blow everyone away. We promise we won’t disappoint. We’ll be unveiling all the fine details and taking orders at the end of March. Stay tuned.
