People who played videogames in the 1980s should remember the NES, the one Nintendo 8-bit console that saved the industry and brought lots of characters that we gamers know and love even after almost three decades. The Nintendo Entertainment System, along with its Japanese counterpart, the Famicon, conquered gaming in the US, Japan, and Europe during the 8-bit generation, back when Sega was Nintendo’s closest rival with its Sega Master System.
For gamers who want to live again their days of gaming glory à la 8-bit, there is a new, beautiful retro-console that lets people play the classic NES and Famicon titles: the Analogue NT. Designed by Analogue Interactive, the console is “a single, solid block made of 6061 aluminum,” and it is built with original hardware parts. Original accessories such as the NES Zapper and the Famicom Disk System can be connected to this console.
Gamers who have saved their gaming collection will be able to connect the console to their computer monitors and HDTVs as it supports multiple video connections (RGB, Componenet, S-Video, Composite, and HDMI via an adapter).
For multiplayer games, such as the NES version of the arcade hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Konami, there is no need for an accessory for up to 4 players simultaneously to enjoy the titles.
The $500 price tag is very high for gamers who may still be saving money to buy a Wii U, PS4 or Xbox One, but for anyone that can afford it, it could be the next must-have item, the one to live the gaming days of the 80s once again.
