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.
We thought as much about the exterior as we did the interior. The Analogue Nt is precision fabricated from a single, solid block of 6061 aluminum. Engineered with an uncompromising attitude to quality. There has never been another video game system like it.
The Analogue Nt is designed around the heart and brain of the original NES. The Ricoh 20A3 and Ricoh 2C02 - the identical CPU and PPU used in the original. Unlike the knock off and emulation systems that riddle the market today, the Analogue Nt is built with original hardware. This means you’ll be experiencing the NES with the hardware it was designed to be played with. Free of any compromises.
No blinking lights, lockout chips or region limitations. The Analogue Nt uses the identical controller ports used in the original NES. It has the original Famicom expansion port too. This means the Analogue Nt is compatible with the original NES and Famicom hardware and accessories; from the NES Zapper, to the Famicom Disk System.
Experience video quality so extraordinary - it’s like playing NES for the first time. The Analogue Nt is an RGB NES. This means each and every pixel is razor sharp, producing an astounding level of clarity. The Analogue Nt natively outputs the highest quality analogue signals available: RGB, Component, S-Video, and Composite. With the HDMI Upgrade (sold separately) - you'll be able to connect to your HDTV with HDMI, upscaling to 1080p or 720p. Plug in to any HD or SD television and rightfully display each and every game as the pieces of art they are.
The HDMI Adapter is an internally installed upgrade for your Analogue Nt. It upscales digitally — directly up converting the NES' video as it is being generated from the digital signals on the PPU and CPU. Unlike a traditional scaler, there is no analog to digital converter. This means no lag and zero signal degradation. Check out the HDMI Features and Gameplay videos here.
The NES is home to some of the most iconic music in video game history. Music this significant should be experienced in High Fidelity. The Analogue Nt supports Famicom expansion audio as well as adjustable Mono and Stereophonic Sound. Inside you'll find shielded components pulling the audio directly from the original source. Not only does this mean an authentic representation of sound but crystal clear audio that is free from noise and interference.
With the HDMI Upgrade (sold separately), your Analogue Nt outputs the highest quality digital audio: 48KHz 16 bit stereo. 8 bit music has never sounded better.
There is something to be said about playing games with your friends, right there at your side. It’s a feeling that can’t be replicated online and it’s a unique attribute of retro gaming. The Analogue Nt is designed with four controller ports. This way you can play every four player NES and Famicom game ever made right out of the box.
